Try: cichlid pellets, mealworms, cut up earthworms, shrimp pellets, live worms,
(from: Sunfish help!)

Did you catch them in a pond or lake or something? Not sure about the bass with the sunfish and how much room they need though; it seems the smallmouth bass alone needs over 100 gals from what I'm reading.

More info: Sunfish help - Aquarium Forum

I'd pop them right back into the lake or wherever they came from.

In that tank, no. It's not an appropriate environment for what you have already, please don't think about adding more fish.

Yeah I agree with Lynda. No offense but smallies can get 20 some inches long and 5-6 lbs or more full grown. I wouldn't even put one in a tank that size let alone more than one. In the wild they hang around lots of rocks and swim around a ton
