You might want to check the wildlife laws in the area you caught the fish. What you did might be highly illegal and you could be fined or even jailed, depending on your age. I know that where I used to live, you couldn't even walk in some areas because of the wildlife there, you couldn't hunt a type of animal, and you couldn't hurt or remove anything that animal ate.

Check on that before you tell everyone what you did.

I don't think fish laws in Trinidad are very strict MissPokemaster. If it's a popular game/food fish, then I don't think it'd be endangered either..
This fish also has it better than many wild caught animals because he wasn't forced into some lengthy shipping to get to a fish store or whatever..
I used to keep minnows over the summer, I'd always let them go in the fall so they could do whatever minnows do in the winter, lmao.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Good you have all that info on that, where I used to live people were really getting in trouble for taking animals or such, and getting really expensive fines for something so simple to not do!

Yes, we have the same thing. Especially for our local amphibians and turtles. :p

I used to have sun fish that were in canals and kept them in my 120 gallon aquarium. Better than what would happen to them when the canal dried out! As long as the fish is well taken care of, and not an endangered species, I don't see what the problem is.
