Hi all!

This is my first post here and I hope I am doing it right.
I need to know how to sex Dollar Sunfish. I have kept a total of 5 of them
that were collected last summer from the Everglades and know a spot where I
can get more. All are quite colorful and happy in their native community
tanks with Bluefin Killies, Golden Topminnows, American-Flag Fish,
Mummichogs, Swamp Darters, Hogchokers, and Crested Gobies. All are about 3
inches in length.

I also have a Goby that I can't identify (after searching for weeks) and
some other fish that appear to be killies. I will post some pics. in a few

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
All the best,

Spike's Everglades Aquarium
