Those who wonder what the big deal is with this fish can get a pretty good idea from these pics. The one shown at the tops of these forum pages is a sad specimen indeed.
Hey, I see you have the orangey-yellow ones. Nice. I've noticed that these come in two distinct color forms, orange-yellow and pure yellow, apparently based on either location or diet. Mine have always wound up pure yellow.
Hmmm.. question--were yours pure yellow until they spawned, at which point they turned orangey? Mine stayed yellow.
In other news, my quest to find them still present in Covington County remains fruitless.

My wife took some photos of them swimming around in the pond but I can't seem to find them at the moment. The 4 I pulled out of the pond seem to be doing great. I'll keep looking for more but don't want to drain the pond and do any harm to the several hundred dollar sunfish fry that are swimming around in there. Minnow fry are easier to feed in the aquarium than the sunfish...
You could have moved the adult Dollar Sunfish and adult Welaka into a 300 gallon pond. You have enough Dollar fry in your pond. Seining in the top 8 inches might have caught many Welaka fry. The Dollar fry will grow better if not over-crowded. How many Dollar fry do you realistically need?
I have been feeding Dollar Sunfish fry to my Fieryblacks
since I don't need 800 Dollar Sunfish.
