It certainly does, thanks! It was very intriguing ; I like learning about
regional variations of different fishes. Like longears for instance, I've
learned about the Northern longears Lepomis megalotis peltastes, the famed
Kansas/Missouri "subspecies", and the Cuatro Cienegas sunfish which is the
southernmost one that I know of. Your accounts of sunfish breeding make me
want to breed sunfishes from my own area; I've never bred them before. I
plan on starting with the green sunfish and pumpkinseed sunfish that I have
right now, once I get the tank space and mates for them ( not even sure what
gender they are right now ) to breed with. I'm particularly interested in
breeding northern longears and orange-spotted sunfish from this state.
