Breeding pearscales is just about the same as breeding any other goldfish(google search should bring up lots of info). I am not expert but judging on how ballooned their bodies are it may be better to handspawn them(similar to what they do in trout hatcheries...their is a website somewhere with the procedure).

First, you need large, mature, and healthy fish and an adequately sized tank. You will also need room to house all the offspring and a plan for all the culls.

Good luck if you attempt it.

Food for fry is also a consideration that should be taken in to account. In my experience small live food is best.

It's a pleasure Very Happy

If they spawn, they will probably do it on plants, or some of mine just do it on the gravel.

Good luck
