Well....they dont stand a chance in SG against the tomans and peacock bass.
But....if grass carps were left unattended....they will cause havoc.
They will first deplete the algae(i dont think its plankton) supply, leaving the local population of fishes starving(the baitfishes eg:guppy) if they multiply without check(Check i mean population control by the predators of the carp).
Next, the eco-system may collaspe.
Dont let it happen, not in SG.
Urrrgh, no time to fish now~

It's not entirely necessary but it's good to have one. Farm breds sometimes have slight colour difference from those you caught in the wild due to the environment they're bred in.
