Do you own a test kit?  What is the ammonia level in the blue gill tank?

Do you understand the nitrogen cycle?

A test kit is an essential piece of equipment with a fish tank.  Before spending $1 more on anything else you NEED to get a test kit.  If you print the price from an on line store out you can bring that price into a bigger store such as Petsmart and they will sell you the kit for the on line price.  On line they are about $15, in the store they are closer to $30, so its worth it to print out the add.

There is a VERY good chance that your bluegill tank has a very high level of ammonia in it right now.  Any ammonia at all will kill them in a short amount of time.

Blue gill grow to be 16" long.  They cannot be kept in a 10 gallon tank.  They will die.
