how many points of ID do i need for a definate?
the fish had the cresent under the pupil and several small spots on its head and body.
The fish was caught in the Escawtawba river in South Mississippi
also how big can i expect this fish to get, it is about 3" or so now and growing fast.

I will look through my picts and get a clear one
also it does not have the black spots on the fins above and below the tail like a Blue gill,
it also has a light fringe on its tail fins and dorsal fins, and lower fins

there were 5 originally, 1 had a strange discoloration and was euthanized, i gave 3 to a friend of mine who has a 55 gal tank, and the sunfish in question tore the other one up so bad one day that I euthanized it.
here it is as of today
I enjoy this fish, it comes right up to the glass when ever it sees me and begs, it attacks the python tube during water changes, staying about 2" from it at all times.
I will probably just keep it by itself from now on out.
how big to red spot sunnies get?

The redspotted sunfish I have now is the meanest fish I keep. I moved him in with some adult jewel chiclids because it would not let the bantams eat. It killed both of them in no time. Gonna have to keep it alone I guees. The last one I had did fine with other fish.
