What are these?

So I picked up feeder minnows and had this surprise with it but I don't know exactly what they are.

I'm no expert but I just picked up a juvenile green terror. Looks alot like that guy there. My guess is it's some kind of south American cichlid

I think it looks like a sunfish. Of coarse I live in Hawaii so I wouldn't know much about fish of the continental U.S.

I'm going to agree about the bluegill

That's what I thought too but wanted to make sure. It has the black dot and the irridescent green on it.

How do you know Sally pu? Was that dinner last night? I think they are too. There's two of them in my tank with the minnow feeders I picked up.

That's a sunfish or "bream" (brim) as we call them, but not a "bluegill." Looks like a redear to me. A bluegill is usually darker and well, blue. Not all blue, but it will have some blue and often orange on it. - however, coming from a farm type environment, who knows? It's def. a sunfish.
