    Do you happen to know the species name of the bluegill, by any chance?

    Due to the size of an adult bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) and the aggressiveness, a 60 gallon tank is only good for 1 bluegill for life (tank maybe a tad small). If you decide to add smaller fish, expect it to be eaten or nipped.



    Anymore fish would require 100+ gallons of water. Here's a listing of compatible fish (see Large Sunfish Tank section)

    http://jonahsaquarium.com/JonahSite/...patibility.htm

    A stable community can sometimes be attained by acquiring only one or two individuals of several different species, since this will tend to dissipate intraspecific aggression. Fishes must be nearly the same size to prevent fatalities. Abundant cover is essential. Lower temperatures reduce aggression. When it's hot, they will fight.

    I agree, bluegills get quite large and will be aggressive to most anything else in the tank. That jonah's aquarium is a really good site for North American fish. I'd go with what they say.
