Will you have Orangespotteds in the year? I'm thinking of possibly adding one or two to my stream tank if I do end up upgrading it to a 75 gallon.

I'm not making any promises on them because they have given me more trouble in the past than most Lepomis but I should have some available soon.

Awesome! I assume they would do well in a 75 with darters, shiners, dace, and other stream fish, is that correct?

Yes their small size makes them fit in well with most darters and minnows but a big o-spot will eat a small darter or minnow on occasion...

I am happy to know this! I have been fishing for O-spotts around me for a while and have yet to catch any myself, but have seen people catch them. Knowing that they could be found where darters and shiners are found definately will open my eyes to new areas of this river I fish with them!
