Round one with Coppernose Bluegill complete.  Tore it down over weekend and reset with similar sized Northern Bluegill.  Behavior of interest started withing 24 hours.  Northern Bluegill much more inclined to leave study tank.

 

 

I stocked seven of both types into a 40-gallon tank in man-room.  Types very easy to distinguish based on coloration.  Home ranges evident for all even within the confines of a 40-gallon aquarium.  Substrate / background impacts color pattern changes of interest to me.
