    Orangespotted Sunfishm Lepomis humilis (Order Perciformes, Family Centrarchidae). Maximum size believe to be 6 inches. It is mostly in states with the Mississippi River system and appears to prefer sandy streams, but tolerates muddy water. It also tolerates extensive water fluctuation and seems indifferent to bottom type. Typical feeding habits, insects and occasional fish.

    Crickwalker, thanks for the photo....very pretty fish. I am not sure that I have ever seen one of those before.

    CoachBob, thanks for the detail on the fish.

    Thanks and regards,
