Hi Maria, yes i found it in a permanent wetland, that second shot in this series is actually the first photo i took of this specimen. And yes i most certainly put it back, i dont believe in keeping any wild animals longer than a day and displacing them from their original habitat, as that could disturb population dynamics and associated ecology. In fact i think trade in exotic species for pets is often treated irresponsibly, it has bad implications on indigenous fauna and flora with the exotics often outcompeting the natural species when they do escape (and this is more often than not). If one wants a "pretty" pet, keep it local or go travelling to see those species one is fond of. This is exactly why i like this site so much, i get to see whats out there. :)
