    And your point? Theres already sticky post about ID the sunfish, no need to make new threads about ID the sunfish.
    I'm not gonna sell him. I'll raise him through the winter and decide to sell it or not.

    The link works for me, and it's a perfectly good key. Nothing wrong with what you're doing, though, but it'd be nice to include more diagnostic characters as well as general description.

    I see nothing wrong with what he is doing either as long as the information remains accurate and he applies it to his own identifications .

    However, i think im gonna cry that my little boy is growing up and learn how to identification the sunfish. This is good way for him to learn this. Dont forget about other non-lepomis species too.
    I'm not gonna sell him. I'll raise him through the winter and decide to sell it or not.
