The white edging on the fins is classic Green. Anything beyond that and I'm just guessing.....
Join the crowd. It's L. cyanellus x somethingus.

Very normal, apparently he is male.
Sounds like he's getting in the mood. Even though he has no tankmates, temperature and instinct probably has him thinking.

Blumingreen HA I like it! ok so when I first was calling him a hybrid I was right. I just took the word on another fish forum when they all started saying Bluegill. Shows what those guppy lovers know. Jk of course no offense ment to any guppy lovers on here.
He has characteristics of bluegill, pumpkinseed, and green sunfish. Lepomis sunfish will readily hybridize, and like others said, it is very hard to find out exactly what they are. Let's just call him a blumkingreen.

Right! Bet it would be as actuate as the dog ones though. Get it back. That there blood means you got a genuine Florida gar mixed with a touch of field mouse. Lol
It's a boy! The nesting is surely male. LoL! They need to have AncestryDNA for sunfish.

Ok cool. Now I just need to figure out where to get one again. Guess it's time to go fishing, what a drag. lol
75 would be better. One of the smaller bullheads would be best. I just mention them because they are not very aggressive and I have never seen Lepomis target them either.

lol well I'd prefer him now suck him down either. So I guess I need to find one that will be tough but won't gte big enough to eat him. hummm, any bullhead breeders out there?
I promise that no matter how big of a Bullhead you put in with any Sunfish, you don't have to worry about coming home and finding the Bullhead chowing down on the Sunfish. If the Sunfish fits in the Bullhead's mouth, it will disappear all at once. If it doesn't fit, worry about the Bullhead.

And although I have no experience, I am certain that a green or a warmouth could easily eat a madtom or bull heat that was small (say in the 2 inch range).
