MetalHead88 created the topic: What are these?!

I've been on vacation in Orlando and at one of the parks had a whole bunch of cichlid looking fish. There was about 100 of them grouped up under a bridge looking for someone to toss them some food. They almost looked like carp but they were shaped like a cichlid and about 12 inches. They were silverish or greenish in color and had spangles everywhere. Also they had very wide mouths.

Any one know what these are?? Idk if this is a native fish or something that they threw in. But it looked like something I'd have in my fish tank. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure they were tilapia. I spent a decent amount of time was hung them they were quite social with humans.

I did snap a picture but you can't tell anything from them all you could really see is that there's a whole mess of some sort of fish

I was thinking tilapia because you mentioned the large mouth. Looked maybe something like this...

Do you use tapatalk? You can upload right from your phone into tapatalk.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Like I said.... It's hard to see.... You can tell there's a bunch of fish in the water but that's about it. When I took the pics I couldn't see the screen it was so bright out
