im glad to here that you like north American natives to there is a place were I have been were there were all kinds of sunfish such as banded, bluegill, red breasted, mud, green, and I think if there is such a type im not sure it looked just like a red breasted sunfish but it had orange instead of red and I was able to go in the water with a net and put bread in the net and I was able to net them with ease they were not afraid and there were other kinds of sunfish that I have never seen but they were not big do to the water being very acidic im not sure but I was told that because of the water being so acidic that it stunted there growth the water was crystal clear there were also a yellow perch that I seen but all of them stayed away from me when I was in the water lol except the sunfish one other place I went to there were a lot of bluegill and some of them were very big and would bite me if I stood still and there were some very large trout I know it all sounds to good to be true but because of the places I went were not populated by people I think that was the reason the fish were like that and the reason there were so many all of the places I went to were I seen the fish were kind of far in woods and I had to be carful because there were a lot of bear from what my father in law told me he is kind of like Rambo at least I think so he was in the military and seen action and was also a police officer and loves nature thank you for the reply I hope I did not say to much just love native fish talking about native fish gets my memory going of some good times.

Some pictures, as promised! The rest I took will go in my photo thread.
1) Both of my baby bn plecos in one place. I adore the one with the bigger/more noticeable spots, but they're both just so cute XD
2) When I first got my floating plants, they covered maybe 1/3 of the surface of the tank. After about one week, it looked like this. A thick covering on the top that was difficult to break through XD I even trimmed it out several times, and it still looks like that. I have no idea what to do with all my extra floaters!
3) Cories are supposed to love eating shrimp. Yet this daredevil doesn't care. He's too interested in the stuff that gets stuck in the filter to care about his mortal enemy on the other side of the tube XD
4) I fed everyone last night, and threw in a few bloodworms for a treat. This Amano decided to feast on one. It was hilarious watching it swoop down, pick one up, then swim away as fast as it could possibly manage. I wish I had gotten a picture earlier when it still had 90% of the worm hanging out of its mouth XD
