    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.
