I don't think an adult mudpuppy would be bothered by a green sunfish. I have
several dwarf mudpuppies and they are ravenous predators of anything they can
get their mouths around. the only fish that can live around them is an
elephantnose fish and a flounder. Everything else put in the tank is eaten by
them. They love dwarf crayfish, earth worms, small fish, ghost shrimp, and
frozen blood worms.
