Re: NFC: 110 gal set-up for sunfish etc.

Sounds like a neat setup, Ray.  I agree that the high fish density helps to
disperse aggression.  I'm not sure how other minnows, such as redbellies,
would have fared in there.  I routinely crowd my fish and that seems to
work.  I also sort by family for the most part.  I usually don't keep
minnows with sunfish other than Enneacanthus.  I have kept a very
aggresssive blacknose dace with sunnies and logperch too.  I keep tadpole
madtoms with them with lots of hiding places.  Bullheads do fine until they
get big enough to eat the sunnies.  Would like to see your tanks some time.
