Hey boringname, I am new to this forum and haven't posted yet...BUt is just saw your profile pic and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I grew up just north of the Pinelands in NJ and Banded Sunfish are my favorite. I watched a lake go through stages of succession as I grew and as the lake acidified the banded sunnies moved in and proliferated. Unfortunately, that lake has since been dredged to "clean" it for the New Yorkers that moved into the suburbs and wanted a "pretty" lake!!! It is unfortunate really, the sunnies have disappeared and the great plants and associated animal and plant community has been ruined, until people leave NJ alone.
Anyway, sorry for the dribble, just reminiscing, I live in Missouri now and my goal is to establish a blackwater tank and have some for myself to enjoy. Be Well, Jason
