Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      Google "breeding silver perch".

      I have them at a pond near me 500m, so I always catch them, but no ideas on spawning because i've never seen small ones.

      yeh i know ive got a 60"x24"x28"H tank. the size the fish can get to does not concern me as they are slow growers and i will be moving soon so hello 10x3x2.5H foot tank!!. i did google breeding silver perch and there was not much on breeding. only fisheries which gives a brief description and not enough to go on.

      Are you sure you want to breed them in that 560G your getting? You may be able to do it in your 150.
