I cant believe that there is no back-up plan (redirecting waterways etc) that would ensure that no wildlife becomes extinct or close to it because of these actions.

To me the distinction is a thin one but actually Brazil never did publish a list of banned species.
Instead they published a list of species which are permitted for the ornamental fish trade so if the fish isn't on the list it was illegal to fish and traffick the species.

Recently Brazil's IBAMA added more Hypancistrus to the allowed list. This includes but is not limited to L260 and L333.
But again, if a species is not on the list then it is still illegal to fish for and export them.

I doubt very much if H. zebra will be placed on the allowed list in the foreseeable future.
