Setting up a 75 gallon native species tank for a Nature Center

Hi, I'm helping set up a 75 gallon tank for mainly sunfish and hopefully some other species native to Minnesota, perhaps a crayfish as well.

Does anyone have some suggestions for me? Thanks so much, Julie

Id avoid the crawfish, snails, catfish or bass.
Crawfish will take your minnows, snails will overbreed the tank, catfish and bass will take everything.

Thanks David!

Should be interesting keep us updated.

We finished setting up the tank in August & put 6 beautiful guys in. They are doing so well & all getting along great!

I like thank for sharing. Id mush rather have a set up like this anytime.

It was fun setting up. We found rocks and wood from the surrounding area.

They are like our little puppies. They come over so excited when we arrive & follow us as we walk past the tank.

There will be much enjoyable time spent there.
