I got 5 of these guys for one of my new above ground pond projects.
There are bright red, pinks and yellows. But I only found golds and one yellow.
They have taken over an area of Black Creek down there. And are not too uncommon elsewhere in Dade county.

They do look very healthy :) How did you catch them? Are they native to the area, or repopulated from fish released in the area?

I didn't catch these myself.
I bought them off of a kid that did.
They have taken over some of the waterways in Miami/Dade county from released aquarium fish decades ago.
I found a spot where I caught them previously, but now I didn't find any.
It's kinda hit and miss

Thanks for sharing, the habitat picture with all the turtles is interesting. It would be great to catch your own aquarium fish.

These Salvini are also common now in our waterways.
I may actually catch some and place them in my vacant pond.

I might catch more of these and stock one of my ponds with them.
I mean, they're evasive.
I might as well.
