Probably the result you guys would expect, i had to remove the plants as the sunfish tore them out for the purpose of "clearing his nest", so anyway if a LONE small (juvenile) golden shiner can hold his own against the sunfish (no combat whatsoever ), than i am interested in adding more colorful shiner species (flagfin shiner) or similar sized bottom dwellers (madtom, mudminnow, logperch, etc.)
I especially want to keep eastern mudminnows (I've seen 5 inch ones) and madtoms with the pumpkinseed, the local lake in my area has those two species living really close to pumpkinseed nests (i want to replicate the lake in this tank), if that doesn't/won't work i will try keeping the pumpkinseed with shiners & logperch.
