Freshwater from St.Williams

Pond Pumpkinseed Tank

About Me

Active within 2555 Days

Name: Pumpkinseed

Size/Category 10-Gallon Freshwater

Type: Glass

Shape: Standard

List of Fish:

Lighting: full-range hood

Filtration: powerfilter 10

Invertebrates: none

Other Accessories: I caught this Pumpkinseed fish in our huge pond in our back yard. Pumpkinseeds are rare where I live, so when I caught one, I set up my old 10 gallon in the attic and put it in there. They look like bluegills and sunfish but they have bright blue and orange gills. I named this fish Penny. She used to eat earthworms, but I slowly taught her to eat fish food. I set up her tank quite boringly (I DON'T THINK THAT'S A WORD!)with only gravel, a rock, and a fake plant.

Will your Pumpkinseed outgrow its 10-gal. tank over time, too? I don't really know how big they get. Here's a vote!

Welcome to the club. very interesting tank. I am currently setting up a 110 gallon tank for some sunfish. I have been thinking of setting it up for a couple of years but have never had the space for it. onnce the weather breaks i will be out in seach of the tanks new inhabitants, being from Pa sun fish, blue gills, and pumpkinseeds are very abundant. though it's sometimes hard to come across a pure strain, as they readily hybridize between the species. You may find that pumpkinseeds become fairly large fish, i've seen some as long a 10 inchs, so your 10 gallon may become a bit small for yours. here'a a vote, and good luck. happy fish keeping.
