I see a lot of talk and advertising for copper nose bluegill. It there a significant difference between CNBG and the BG? Do they have different needs/strengths?

Hi Brad.
CNBG are for southern, warm waters. Here in Colorado, even "northern" BG don't thrive in some of our cooler BOWs. As an example, my pond, at 6500 feet above sea level, and fed by irrigation water from the Dolores River, seems to be fine for GSF, YP, trout all summer, LMB. But BG have been stocked on at least two occasions and have not persisted.

There are numerous references to the requirements of both fish in the archives which make fascinating reading.

There are biologists here who can answer that better than I, Brad. However, my understanding is that CNBG is more of a warm water fish than BG. Coppernose don't typically do well in BOW that ice over in winter.

Thanks for the replies. I definitely need to avoid CNBG.
