New to the forum. Sorry if I break any rules let me know if I do. I have a 90 gallon and am looking for the following MALE sunfish around the 2-3 inch range:

Orange spot
Blue spotted

I have 2 Longear that are almost 3 inches from Zimmerman's Fish (almost positive they are male) and unlimited baby bluegill I can trade.

Also unlimited ludwigia I can trade.

I live in Central Texas and can meet up if local to mail anywhere in the US.

That's a beautiful tank that you have put together and one beautiful male Longear (the other appears to be a female).


Just curious if you are offering to trade the Longear, because if I were in your position I would not want to part with him. Lepomis are my favorite and I currently have Bluegill, Orange Spotted, and a Longear. In addition to Lepomis, I also have Bluespotted sunfish that I collected in South Carolina as well as their offspring. My original specimens are getting ready to spawn again, so if you are still interested, this fall I will have some juveniles big enough to survive being mailed.

I don't think you can mix Bluespotted with Pumpkinseed and I would be leery of male Dollars as well due to their aggressive nature. Orangespots would probably be ok.

Orangespots should be in central Texas. Check out fishmap.org. Also sent you a PM.
