Pygmy sunfish are a cool addition to a nano tank or a outdoor container in the warmer months.
They do well even in water with extremely low oxygen levels,can produce two spawns a year,grow to less than two inches max,they breed best in aquatic plants but will breed in gravel if that is unavailable ,there r several subspecies,including gilberts Pygmy sunfish.
They eat mostly insects and small snails in the wild.

There you go, I liked it. lol but seriously do you currently have any? If so post a pic. I have tought about setting up a tank for one but I would have to order on line. I have never seen any offered locally. I could collect some sunfish myself if I could find a location.
