Re: Fish Offer

I might be interested in the fish but wondered if you could tell me a bit
more about them? Since I am new to natives and I am sure others are to here
are some questions that came to my mind.

What temps do they need?
Egg or live bearer?
What size of aquarium or what size are the fish?
Are they schooling fish?
What type of environment do they prefer? Gravel or sand? Plants, current
I am sure I will think of other questions as soon I send this.

I have two tanks that I am thinking about using to raise some natives in.
One is a 20 long. It currently is a planted tank with a sand over kitty
litter substrate. I have been thinking about tearing it down and making it
in a riffle tank.

The other is a 30 long. It has a gravel substrate with a single light and is
lightly planted. There is a power head to create some current for the

One more question! Would they be compatible with Long Ear sunfish? That is
one fish I hope to catch this summer for my show tank!

I think I have a source for boxes too. The one shop in out area throws his
out I believe. I have been up there and seen boxes labeled Live animals
stacked outside and I bet they were fish boxes. Will have to check on that.
