> Harry,

I'm not familiar with Orangespot Sunnies in your area but I think you may
have a slowly decreasing population of sailfin shiners even with
orangespots. I've kept a few small, almost three inch Orangespots with a
bunch of Northern Redbelly Dace in a 55 g and have many less now. Granted a
125 g will be an advantage but I'd keep em well fed anyway.

Any northern fish you might be interested in trade for some sailfins,
broadstripe or flagfin shiners?
