So Im ordering a Sacramento perch from Jonahs aquarium (Im super excited that they found some). I got 3 green sunfish in my 150. Usually they are pretty peaceful and stick to their nests, but occasionally the dominant one will chase the Others for 5 seconds or so (nothing serious). The Sacramento perch will probably be grown out in a smaller tank just in case, but how will these species behave together? My green sunfish are super peaceful compared to many of the stories I hear of others. There are some hiding spots with more being added soon

I might be forgetting to add something to this post, so if I remember I will post it when I get home

Leo, I think you might be in uncharted territory. Mark probably has more info than most. Josh Porter has kept them, I think. I would PM him. EBParks is his handle. I am excited to hear your experience with this species. I am tempted to try a few myself.

So I got mine on Friday.  It seems to like to stay in shade like under logs and plants.Seem to be a secretive fish. It started eating frozen bloodworms yesterday after seeing all the other fish eat. Not sure if it's because of its size or newness, but they remind me of crappie and such in their peaceful demeanor
