Dollar Sunfish ...info?
Anyone have experience keeping these beautiful north american fish??
Dollar Sunfish - Lepomis marginatus
I have a native tank in which i keep Green Sunfish, Bluegil and Red breasted Sunfish. All similar species with the same habitats and feeding behaviour. They are great to watch at feeding time when feeding on minnows !
I've only done a test once when I first started the tank around 2 years ago. The ph was 7.2 , the temp stays at 74 unless I'm breeding them and then I turn the heater off for a month and then gradually back up to 74 . I live native species and you will be surprised how many there are and how colorfull. I just bought a 20 gallon tank which are going to house rainbow darters, they are as bright as any tropical fish .

Just watch it with Dollar Sunfish, they can be aggressive towards other tankmates.
From reading the little info that is out there their behavior is similar to that of cichlids (makes sense)
