    ok i have had this thread on OGF for a while and i figured i would put it on here. i have a 125 gallon aquarium and i have a bunch of fish, but my favorite is my green sunfish peewee. when i got him he was 1/2 a inch in november out of a creek and now he is almost 7. Hes a fun little guy and already weighs .67 pounds. my goal is to grow him to state record size and maybe world record size. Other tankmates a Red Tail Catfish named Bruiser, A Tiger Shovelnose Catfish, 2 channels and 5 oscars. heres some pics.

    Pretty oscars! Those fish are cool. Do you ever feed them goldfish? They chow down on some goldfish or minnows. :cool2:

    peewee has since past away from a heater malfunction. he was 11 inches and weighed a pound and half..

    The tiger shovelnose jumped out of my tank a month ago and died on the floor, he was 26 inches.

    And my redtail catfish Bruiser is still alive and kicking. he weighs right around 15 pounds and we have been feeding him 1-2 shad a week and the shad are 10 inchers!!!!
