Def Pygmy sunfish but I would think you would want something bigger.

Bluegill is a dream sunfish of mine, but probably maxes out too big.

I know a bluegill is two big for that tank so I was thinking a redbreast, warmouth, or pumpkinseed

Redbreasted and Pumpkinseed would be fine. Add dithers like Mosquitofish and/or Shiners.

lets use the process of elimination!

what fish in the leopomis complex get to big for a 40 gallon?

  • green sunfish
  • bluegill
  • redears

what does that leave?

  • ellasoma
  • longears
  • pumpkinseeds
  • dollar sunfish
  • banded sunfish

I hope that clears it up
