Hi donovan.
Which venustus are you talking about?
Notrophis venustus or Nimbochromis venustus or is there another venustus that I don't know about?

Hi donovan.
Lepomis macrochirus seems to be one of the most abundant fish in the U.S. of A. therewith showing a certain adaptability to different water conditions. Eventhough Nimbochromis venustus is exclusively piscivore the bluegill should be large enough to hold it's own if adult specimen are introduced. My concern would be temperature since according to the literarure at my disposal, Lepomis m. is most comfortable at around 22* C. Suggested temps for Nimbocromis range between 24 and 28* C depending on the source. The question here would be if the Nimbochromis can deal better with temps a bit lower or the Lepomis with temps a bit higher. I don't have my own experiences with these particular species but if I had to, I'd always try the latter.

R.
