Hi there fish keepers around the globe! Have you been searching the internet lately for some tips of successful fish farming and fish breeding? Oh yes! New ideas are just within our reach today. Today’s blog offers all our readers more than just an idea. Everything I shared with you guys are all based from my personal experiences and have been proven true for me. So, for all of you who are interested with new but proven-true ideas, read on.
Since I will be transferring the fishes from the other tanks to my newly concreted pond, some tanks will be left empty. But, later on I will be planting in there my aquatic plants. In growing aquatic plants, there are two methods in planting- EMERSED & SUBMERSED. Submersed plants are he ones that grow completely below the water line and are fully submerged, while emersed plants are plants that are grown partially in and partially out of water. This is my first time to venture in the business of growing aquatic plants, and I am very excited of how to go about it.
By the way, this morning I harvested Moore Fishes for our aquarium in the pet store. Among those I got were fishes with deformities in the body, so I opted to separate them from the perfect ones. They are to be separated because they are not supposed to be one of our breeders in the future. So it’s yours to decide whether to keep them or feed them to your fish-eating fishes. Tips for all breeders out there, get the most beautiful fishes always. I do this so that when they produce babies, they will have beautiful produce as well.
When breeding fish, I would like to emphasize the importance of good water condition. In so doing, you will save yourself from getting hurt for unsuccessful breeding. Feeding them with right kind of food is next to maintaining the quality of water. For me, I feed some fishes with daphnia which are readily available in nearby swamps or lakes. Daphnia are members of the order Cladocera, and are one of the several small aquatic crustaceans commonly called water fleas because their saltatory swimming style resembles the movements of fleas. They are good source of protein for the fish. If you do not have daphnia, there is an alternative protein-rich food for your fishes which I shared with you in my previous video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZlpDRXQMnU
Lastly, do not overpopulate your tank, this may cause stress and death to our fish. Even human gets stress when put in a crowded place.
So there you have it guys! Please keep posted as I will be featuring some more fish farming techniques and ideas for all of you.
