(Actually jumping while feeding) Bluegills are cool but have mean streaks...they will eat anything smaller than then and harass anything bigger than them. I once had a "lake tank" as a teen, and they are alot of work. It was a 40 gal
.. and had 2 bullheads, 3 bluegill/sunfish, 2 bass, and a Northern pike. Needless to say it worked til the fish got large, and put stress in the tank and they had to be released. And wild fish are messy! And the only commercially available feed they would eat was freeze dried tubifex worms. They preferred live food and I went through a lot of creek minnows and bugs! In the winter I was able to get them to eat dry dog food and softcraws from the bait store. I'll never do THAT sort of tank again!
