I am setting up a 125 gal native tank-in-my office and I want to keep some
sail fin shiner (a large school about 25 or so) and a few sunfish, I know
where 2 catch Long Ear sunnies but I think they may get big enough to eat
the shiners. Does anyone know where I can collect some Orange spot shiners
with in about a 2 hour drive of Mobile, AL?? Also if there is anyone in the
Mobile area who would be willing to consult with me on the tank I would
really appreciate it, I have done 6 months of research and reading about the
set up, but experience trumps research any day. I am going to look into a
free web sight where I can post picts about the tank.
