It was caught in Alabama, havent found any picture remotely like it, it kind of has a bass head, jack dempsy blue and greens, pink fins maybe beginning of fin rot?., i have it in incubation to see what's going on with it , but, it stayed still heres a video

Do you fish much for sunfish? Reason I ask is cuz there are lots of sunfish variants out there. It doesnt look like any up here in the north but never fished down south so not sure what variants you have there. I've seen them before though with the blue/green blotches/lines (similar to some cichlids) on their face in pictures before...

looks like a green sunfish, they have yellow hues to the ends of their fins. with the tank lights and rock color its making the yellow look pink, that's what I get from the video. here's a link to pic of a green sunfish.
