Mr. Rice,
I really enjoy your articles and descriptions of our native 
fish and living in a NYC apartment, your article about 
small natives really got me going - I raise Het. Formosa 
in small well planted tank and they thrive. I will be 
getting some pygmy everglade sunfish from a very nice 
gentleman Mr. Pottern this week. However, your article 
on the Orange Spotted sunfish really got me interested 
but I have not been able to locate any  or the e. 
gloriosus which is also a smaller species. I grew up in 
Sout Jersey which is sunfish heaven and we often 
raised black-banded and I beleive the e. obesus but 
this was 30 years ago and most of those ponds are 
shipping centers now - do you know of any sources for 
the OrangeSpotted or e. gloriosus? Thanks - have a 
good Thanksgiving
Neil Nicastro
