    In my pond currently are koi and feeders. All of them raning in the 4" class. Can my fish fare with Bluegills? I've seen youtube videos of feeders and Bluegills living together in harmony. Also what is the lowest temp. that a Bluegill can handle and is a 300 gallon pond decent for about 4 bluegills?

    The bluegills will eventually kill the others, starting with the feeders or smaller fish.

    I have two bluegills with about 6 gold fish, so far everybody plays nice, but we will see.
