The time to research the fishes is BEFORE you purchase them,adopt them,rescue them,etc.
I suspect if you were to google info on Sun Catfish you would find information on them.

I am helping, Helping other's who read these post's to become better informed by researching the fishes before purchasing them.
Websites are littered with post's which usually start out.. "what fish do I have" what foods for this fish,Oh no my fish had babies, What now? Will these fish get along? etc,etc.
A little time and effort on researching the fishes that interest you before purchasing them will always result in happier fishes and hobbyist's.
