My Sunfish Collection

Here is my longear sunfish, great little fish and without a doubt probably the most beautiful fish I own. He eats like a horse and was mailed to me from Ohio (cannot collect my own in NY, listed as threatened). He even eats pellets, among other things. The pictures DO NOT do this fish justice.

Here is my little rockbass I collected a couple months back. He has been doing great but still won't eat dry foods, only live or frozen. I have been feeding him some frozen food or another several times a day, sometimes six. This fish is a lot like an oscar in terms of personality. Not a lot of pictures of him, he hides in that red plant there a lot.

Here is the pumpkinseed, I have had him for almost a year, he will eat flakes but not pellets yet. He is also very oscar-like and follows me around the tank. It's actually pretty hard to take a pic of him because whenever I am near the tank he looks directly at me. He is somewhat aggresive towards the catfish but otherwise a great fish.

Here is a photo of him when I caught him in August 2005

I think it's really neat that you keep native fish and sometimes catch your own. The sunfish is lovely and I can imagine that irridesence all over the body when in the right light.

Nice fish I have kept natives and they have the best personalitys I even had some trout that would eat out of my hand. I think big rock bass look alot like jack dempseys. I had a 14 inch bass in a tank over a winter too he was a great fish.

Very interestin idea to keep sunfish.

I like it. Do they act like SA Cichilds? I know you said like oscars, but they are much smaller looks like. Cool. :)

They do act a lot like cichlids, most of them are a bit more mean though.
