Sounds like you may have some Bluespotted sunfish, Enneacanthus gloriosus.
These are a dwarf species.  Probably will require live food to start.
Chances are that's a hard, alkaline water population as well.  That should
make them easier to keep.  Nice fish.  I have collected them in Hialeah
along Okeechobee road.
