Sunfish help!
I have a sunfish that happened to get cought in my net while going for frogs, I discovered this aft I got home, He hasn't ate in days. I tried goldfish flakes but he spits them out. Does anyone know what they eat? Just for the record, I had a 10 gallon tank (vacant) so I kept the fish. Thank you.

It will eventually outgrow that 10 gallon but when I had one it ate cichlid pellets, mealworms, cut up earthworms, shrimp pellets, and basicly anything I threw in the tank. Keep offering it stuff and it will eventually start taking it. For the most part, treat it like a cichlid.

Bugs and nightcrawlers will win it over
