Redear sunfish spawn from springtime to early fall. The males build nests in silt, sand, or soft mud. These nests are developed with each other in colonies in protected, superficial areas near the coast. The ladies deposit the eggs which hatch out within two to four days. These eggs are guarded by the males for a number of days. The young feed on zooplankton.
