Redbreast sunfish needs new home- tank or pond
I have a young redbreast sunfish that I'm looking to rehome. He's about 2" long, disease-free, and eating greedily on anything you offer that sinks. I feed mostly frozen, but he'll taste anything that comes at least 6 inches below the surface of the water. A bit shy of quick motions, but comes to the front of the tank for food.
Redbreast sunfish get 6-7" in captivity, have nice coloration, and don't tend to be overly aggressive. They're territorial, being sunfish, but they aren't as mean as fish like green sunfish. They do fine in room-temperature water, or can be acclimated to warmer temps, they're a heat-tolerant sunfish species. I have him in a 65g, and a bit less space would work. I'm looking for a good home for him, as I don't want to leave him behind for my brother to take care of while I'm at college.
I know some people might not have a tank open, but does anyone have a pond I can put this guy in? He should be compatible with goldfish and koi, and he'll certainly be fine with the weather. Or just a small, private pond? I just don't want to put him in a river, since he's been with some fish from the aquarium trade.
I live in Georgetown, and I can deliver this guy.
Also, if I find a home for him, I have a nice male redmouth cichlid who'll be able to go to a new home.
