My tank so far, i think what i have are bluegill, green sunfis, not real sure on the larger one.
Also added some shiners and kilifish from the bait shop34b689bd63914e5a2937bd999226f4ce.jpg9698f915eb836a1c614f257be374846e.jpg6c2acd8f60b5cea2870e29ef49d4bc1b.jpg55642473714465b34aec8dfcd82ec9bc.jpg691ba85e574a6efdced9fbb3a0a4644a.jpg

Cool tank.  Eventually your catfish will be the last/only fish or animal left.

It will eat them all. Especially as it grows even bigger.

Most likely. But they are pretty neat fish, so if you (OP) aren't attached to any of the other fishes, it might be pretty cool watching Mr. Whiskers grow. Nice tank.

Keep an eye out for Flexibacter (Columnaris) infection -- one of the killifish has some white patches - it's very common on bait fish.  Small sunnie is definitely bluegill, larger one is not a green but i'm not sure what it is: could be another bluegill (the Florida/Coppernose variety has red fins) or maybe a longear female, or spotted sun, or ???   Yellow bullhead (white chin whiskers), golden shiners.

When the bullhead gets too big he will go into a buddies pond

It looks like scars on the kilifish from being in a big holding tank

I'm down in BR and me and my boys are stocking our 180 gal with brackish fish from lake pontchartrain and from along the coastal marsh whenever we go fishing.  Lots of neat stuff!
