Want to purchase 4 or 5 black banded sunfish. I currently have lots of Blue spotted and Banded sunfish in my tanks and outside pond. San Diego & temps have been in the high 30ts and low 40ts in the AM.

    I bought mine online from zimmerman's fish. It's already my favorite fish. I think the lady who collected them from the wild in nj probably broke the law.

I recently took my seven year old daughter out to a lake for a nature swim and relaxation. She brought along her little net and a beach bucket. She caught about fifteen of the baby black banded sunfish. They were so cute, they resembled angel fish. I put them in my 70 gallon fishtank. So far they have been thriving. I feed them freeze driend krill. We love these little fish. So far they are about the size of a nickel. I live in New Jersey and realize the best things in nature are right here. My daughter loves all creatures and she really loves taking care of these swimming little jems.
