Redbreast Sunfish

By Andrew Christman AKA Snail
Common Name: Redbreast Sunfish
Latin Name: Lepomis auritus
Origin: Eastern US
Temperature: 65-75°F (18-24°C)
Ease Of Keeping: Easy
Aggressivness: Varies with individual, can be aggressive.
Lighting: Any
Adult Size: 4-8" (10 to 20cm)
Minimum Tank Size: 30 Gallons
Feeding: Worms, bugs, may eventually come to accept frozen food.
Comments: This interesting sunfish makes for a great addition to a single-species aquarium. They constantly protrol their aquarium, and will come to reconize the owner. I do not reccomend keeping it with any other fish (with the exception of catfish) because they are Cichlid-like in their behaviour.
