    The catfish looks most like a Tadpole Madtom Noturus gyrinus.
    Next, you have a Fat Sleeper Dormitator maculatus. Such beauties - if they didnt get so big I'd get a m/f pair.
    Your first three sunfish pics appear to be Warmouth Lepomis gulosus (no doubt that the first one is)
    The last sunfish picture is Spotted Sunfish L. punctatus.

    Oh! I also forgot to mention, that YES, madtoms (especially tadpole madtoms) do deliver very painful stings caused from the venom in their spines. Madtoms usually aren't feisty once you have them in hand, but it's the ones that you don't see that get you!

    Cheers, and I enjoy all of your dipnetting photos.

    not all. in the past i took bluefin killifish for my planted tank. i have now about 18 of those so i dont take any more home. in my parents cichlid tank i've taken pretty much 1-2 of every species i catch. this time was my first time with the black acaras so i took a pair home. same thing with the gobies.

    most of the time i just release the fish back. if i have other club members with me i've given them what they want and the rest goes back in the water right after i take a picture of it. so essentially i'm doing it for the fun of it and photographing/cataloging the species found where and when throughout south florida...

    i dont sell them, but i do host them on my own server and dont want people either passing the pictures as their own ("look at this tank bred jewel that i'm selling" when the picture is of a wild-caught jewel...) nor using them and wasting my bandwidth without my permission
    i've been taking pictures and uploading to my website for years, so i just got into the habit

    thanks for the IDs. i'll never understand how the warmouth can look so different from fish to fish! i'm going to research the gobies as i didnt know they get "so big"

    well i can vouch for it being painful. i had never caught a madtom before so hey, painful first time but a first time nonetheless

    You're welcome. Yup, it's not uncommon to hear people calling warmouth the chameleon of sunfishes (although they don't have the colors of others).
    The fat sleepers are very cool fish. Can live in fresh, brackish, salt and their colors are magnificant on both males and females once they get about 5+ inches.

    thanks for the info UncleWillie, i hope mine pull through. they have had an extremely difficult time adjusting to the tank for some reason?

    i totally forgot to include this picture in the original post. it was the most colorful jewel we caught that day:
