lets get right to the chase shall we?

I have been fishing ever sence I can remember, my earliest memory pretty much involved sitting in the shallows with the tiny minnow fry nibbling at me.. and after that, I was building trenches deep in the bank to hold the smaller fish my dad would usually let go, at first they would die slowly, but eventully, I learned how to build a natural filter system..anyway :shock:

I'm 17 and go snorkling all summer long to collect fish, I have...several... aquariums and almost everyone has some form of native wildlife in it.. I currently have 2 juvinile orange spotted sunfish that I caught as 1/3 inchers *so cute when that small* I think I have a pair, one is less than half the length of the other and I'm pretty sure they were born around the same time..I have a yellow bullhead that I have had sence it was 1 inch, and 1 banded killifish. These numbers are very low from what I have had in the past: Several johney darters, tesleated darters, log perch, yllow perch, black bullhead, rainbow smelt, several species of dace, and minnow..the list goes on and on...

and believe me, I have many questions, so get ready lol

Where did you get your orange spotted sunfish and are you sure that's what they are? They aren't found in NYS.

Welcome to the site BTW :)

Owing to Katie's tender age, I'll skip the initiation and just say, Welcome!

I'm pretty sure they are orange spot.. Next time I catch an adult, I will take a picture and show it to you.. and I will get a picture of the 2 I have now, they are still small, so you can't tell by color... but they are in the middle of a change, and I'm pretty sure they are around the same age, but because of the size difference, they would be male and female?

And don't worry about hurting my feelings lol, I can take a punch.. :wink:


oh, and yea, I'm sure smelt are extremely hard to keep, but I'm willing to try, my dad brings them home to use as bait for fishing, but I just love their look, I'm a sucker for big teeth :shock:
