I have a 6 inch bluegill, who I had in a 29g holding tank, and I needed to move some smaller (1-3") sunfish in there because of a problem with another tank. I put in a tank divider made of egg crate because I figured in so small a tank he would beat the tar out of them. However, the egg crate got dislodged and I found them all together, and since they seemed fine I have just been keeping an eye them. They have been together for a week or so and they are perfectly fine so far, even in such a small tank (temporary, obviously). In fact the big[ger] bluegills prescence seems to have made the smaller sunfish stop beating each other up as much.
Do I have a fluke bluegill, or is his benevolent attitude likely to fade?

If the bluegill is female, you may never have much problem, if it is male, and goes into spawning mode????

Non-breeding bluegill are fairly gregarious, semi-schooling fish.
