Great job on catching him, Tilli!

Ugh, I would love to give him a place, but we only have room for two commons right now in our little patio pond. I hope he finds a good home.

Thanks everyone for the advice. I looked up how to report an invasive species and they want me to kill him, freeze him and send him to them with photos and longitude and latitude of where I found him. I agree this should be reported but I'm not killing him just to report it.

Yeah I think you are supposed to kill any non-native fish such as carp and gambusia you pull out of rivers/dams/creeks here.

Did you ask if it was illegal for you to keep him? Hopefully that is not the case.

I downloaded the nonnative species manual on the website and it didn't say anything about keeping them just removing them and sending them in. We have black moors at our Walmart so I can't imagine it's illegal

It's not illegal for you to have a Black Moor It's just you get caught up in all the red tape, regulations, and laws that many not make sense. In FL there are 57 specie of nonnatives established in Fl water legally if I catch say an Oscar in the canal I can't keep him I have to destroy him but I can go to Walmart and buy one.I work for Florida Department of Environmental Protection which includes Fish and Wildlife, Water Resource Management, and Coastal and Aquatic Management as a chemist and all of it does make sense to me. Sometimes one hand does know what the other hand is doing

I really sincerely hope they don't want me to kill him because I know I won't be able to do that. He's sort of cute in an ugly way and he survived all this time :(

Lol I'm not sure about that. Here's a picture to show off some size. That ring is a ponytail under the Tupperware so you can a little of his size. He's actually alarmingly large
