To help ensure that my system was cycled, I added 20 comet goldfish. After monitoring for about a week with no problems and no dead fish, I added 60 copperhead bluegill. Two days later , I have 5 dead goldfish. PH and Ammonia readings are good. The holding tank is 275gal with a Venturi that sucks plenty of air(in my opinion). Is it a good first guess that the Bluegill are attacking the Goldfish? The dead fish's eyes were pecked out and all fish that remain appear to be alert and energetic.

As long as they relatively close in size, they tend to do just fine together. That's a lot of fish in a 275 gal IBC though.

I also have another 200 gal for sump. I ordered 25 bluegill from the hatchery and they gave me 60!! I hope to find someone who needs a few. Most of the bluegill and goldfish are the same size, 2 inches. There are a few that are a bit bigger though. There was also a large mouth bass that slipped in. It's just a tiny bit larger than the others. I don't have and air pump, but my Venturi looks to be doing a good job.
