I have a 65g sunfish tank that needs some stock remodeling. Four of my six longear sunfish are being used as punching bags, and I doubt that's good for their stress levels. For one thing, the smallest is underweight because he's always hiding and has a hard time getting at the food.
Does anyone want some longears? I have one slightly over 3", two slightly under 3", and one that's only about 2". The largest one might be a female, and there's one that I think is a male. The other two I'm not certain about, they're too small.
Benefits to getting longears from me instead of catching some:
I've observed no signs of illness in these guys, and I've had them since February. Their warmouth tankmate had a couple of tiny leeches on him at one point soon after capture, but there aren't any more of them.
They're eating any frozen food you could possibly offer.
And that's not just an outlier, that's typical of dominant males in this spot. Granted, my four subordinates aren't dominant males, but they do have the genetic potential.
I'm looking for a decent home for these guys, so I don't want them going into a tank with something that'll eat them.
I'm asking in a couple of other spots, too, but these are a bit harder to re-home than something like tetras. Anyone want these or know anyone who might? They're free to anyone who can give them a good home.
