If you enjoy the beautifule color and agressive eating of cichlids you should try blue gill. I went to a lake and caught some really pretty blue gill(sunfish). They were red with a tint of blue. I feed them feeder fish and earth worms. The only bad thing about them is that they are really dirty.

Is it safe to eat Blue Gill after catching them and tossing them in your fish tank? I know tons of people say blue gill is the best pan fish.

Yours looks nice, I don't think I have ever seen one in a tank before...I bet you get one heck of a show.

Any tips on Perch? I have heard they are pretty closely related to Cichlids...
