    They're legal. The only loach considered illegal is dojo loach (Misgurnus anguillicaudatus).

    Your Illinois one is combined with Indiana FYI.

    The illinois ones are as follows for APPROVED species, ANY not on this list are illegal to own/possess/breed/distrubte/traffic, per ILDNR LAW. Hobby fish excluded unless released. I work with the DNR everyday and being an avid sportsman there is alot of haze that can be cleared up real easy talking face to face with them. Anything not on this list (again less hobby fish) are 100% illegal and they prosecute to the fullest( they need the $$$ THANKS BLAGO!!!)

    More then likely a get em while you can in canada situation right now. The DFO is watching all 36 species of snakeheads, the northern in particular. I am a sportsman and we do NOT need those things released into north american waters, it exterminates everything in the water, then turn on themselves when the food runs out.

    I live in Long Beach, California and when I went to Circle Pets, they said that mudskippers are illegal. I don't believe them.
    I emailed some guy at the California department of fish and game and looked through the lists of illegal animals and mudskippers weren't even on the list.













    Some pet stores man, seriously.
    woah.

Here in Maryland it is illegal to possess any indigenous wild caught species. Follow the logic now...you can catch a rockfish that is endangered in the Bay and leave it on the dock to die, but if you keep one alive in a tank or pond...you're a criminal. (Not that you'd put a fish that size in a tank, but you get the idea)

    I volunteer with Save Our Streams and Trout Unlimited, and had built a brown trout hatchery that we were using to repopulate old trout streams that had been wiped out by sedimentation, (mainly from people like my kindred home builders).

    Even with our best intentions and a history of decades of good works they didn't want to give us the permits. They were emphatic that absolutely no one was allowed to impound a native game fish species, and since we intended to raise fingerlings to adulthood we were bad people.

    When I paid a visit to their offices one week, during our four month battle to get a permit, I was greeted in their waiting room by a new addition to their decor...a 120 gal. aquarium.

    Imagine my surprise when, upon closer inspection, I could identify Small Mouth Bass, Crappie and Blue Gills all seemingly unaware that the were being held illegally. Turns out the required permit was also not affixed or displayed anywhere to be found.

    Long story longer...after much attention getting discourse (me threatening lives for the B.S. that they'd put us thru) they produced a permit for their tank at the same time ours miraculously appeared.

    I do enough conservation work, and enjoy the out doors enough, that I can appreciate the need for limiting knuckleheads from promulgating potential ecological disaster due to dim witted invasive species introduction to the wild. However...some of the jerks that we've empowered to keep watch are almost as bad as the idiots releasing snakeheads into the Potomac.

    Whatever happened to moderation and common sense?
    A Brown Trout hatchery IS an enviromental danger. They're an introduced species from Europe. Rainbows are not native east of the Mississippi River either. Both of these species cause decreases in the populations of native Brook Trout and Darters. But Brookies are alot harder to catch and don't get as big so to appease the masses they introduce these invaders. We fail to remember that alot of non-native species have been and are still being introduced by the very organizations that are supposed to protect indigenous species. It's really all about the money. The introduced fish that has and still is causing the most environmental damage worldwide is the Largemouth Bass. They're not native to the eastern U.S. or the southeastern U.S. but let's face it. They are BIG money. They are directly responsible for several extinctions, extirpations, and reclassifications to threatened status. It's pretty hypocritical of state wildlife organizations to ban something like Snakeheads as a family here in PA where only a couple of species are able to survive. It's all about protecting a cash cow.

    On further thought the Nile Perch has probably caused a greater # of extinctions than the Largemouth due to its introduction in Lake Victoria, but fortunately they haven't been introduced here.
