CommentsFour ~15cm Banded Cichlids were observed schooled up with a few Mayan Cichlids, Butterfly Peacock bass, Bluegill, Redear Sunfish, and a Blue Tilapia inside the S332B West Detention area. Individuals were immediately downstream of the pump station outflow pipes into the detention area. A pump was operating on Jan 6th, but off today, the 7th, and water levels were low in the detention area. Only able to get a photo of the school from a distance but individuals not identifiable quality. Photo shows conditions present at the time of the observation.; EDDMapS report
