Re: NFC: Big Native Tank
Wally, Go with the Yellow Perch or Crappie and feed
them live foods such as Rosy Reds or even bait-shop
minnows... The Lake Chubs will eventually become food
for the Sunfish no matter what you do... My 5 inch
Longear Sunfish made short work of anything less that
3 inch fish of any kind that I put in with it.. My 75
Gal. was very heavily planted and the shiners hid in
there most of the time. YMMV 150 -200 gal. tank
would be so kewl set up like you want!!!! Good Luck!!!

I want to set it up so my African Cichlid friends will
see what they are missing. I was thinking about
setting it up with 4-5 longear sunfish, and 2-3
stonecats. I know they will work out fine, but what I
am wondering about is other fish. I was thinking that
a school of lake chubs would give the tank a lot of
movement, and that would give me enough space for a
few more fish perhaps yellow perch or black crappie?
Any thoughts or ideas?
