RECOMMENDED – For Optimum survival we recommend adding crushed limestone to your pond, (approx. 1kg per 1000 Litres), before introducing Silver Perch. This buffers the hardness of the water, making it the perfect condition for Silver Perch to survive and grow in.
Silver Perch are well suited to Perth temperature.
Silver Perch are generally skittish and will hide, the key indicator for Silver Perch under stress is hanging at the water surface. If this is the case, test your water, ensure the pump is clear, and/or air pump is working.
If there are abnormal levels of ammonia, nitrites etc, do a 1/3 water change, (make sure you condition the water if from the tap), and make sure you have lots of splashing water or use an air pump. You will need to keep doing water changes until the levels are normal. Adding crushed limestone is important. If they are still lethargic and not eating after 24 – 48 hours, do a salt treatment.
Any signs of fungus, white films on skin or fins, or gasping, then do a salt treatment – See all the info here: https://www.woodvalefishandlilyfarm.com.au/medicating-aquaponics-fish/
