RE: NFC: Native Fish Tanks???

Sounds like you're on the right path but I'll venture the following two
  - That seems like a lot of fish for a small tank.  Especially with the
sunfish who a) normally school and b) are voracious (and not very neat)
  - My experience is that an ungravel filter is destructive to plant roots.
Consider a bio-wheel or canister filter.

Good luck, Charles

I was thinking maybe a 55g or larger.  Nice wooden stand.  2 filters, and an
ug filter, run by 2 powerheads.  Double hood, with pland-gro bulbs in it.
Lots of gray gravel, and native plants.

Fish include:
Sunfish (Various types, non-dwarf)
Goldentop Minnows
Marbeled Gambusia

....Suggestions would be nice.

Is this possible?  Chris
