Who of us at least once in your life nalyubovatsya the beauty of the water surface at sunset or sunrise? Water attracts, fascinates. But not everyone can boast of a nearby lake, river or even a sleepy pond. In this case, the only way to enjoy the contemplation of the water world — to build on the site of the fish pond.

Installation of the aquarium takes approximately six to ten weeks (4-6 weeks during the chemical way). The process can be accelerated by adding live rock and live aragonite sand. This will only accelerate, not replace, bicikl.

Otherwise the fish stuck in the aquarium, just kill the newcomer. This rule is especially true for zabrosom, clowns and some other fish species. Fish should be added in small groups so as not to trigger a rise in ammonia levels. If you add more than one fish at a time, the ammonia level will rise.
Feeding. It is best to feed the fish twice a day. Live food is not necessary for most fish species. A combination of frozen shrimp and formula 2 (food-based algae) is fine. The use of several types of frozen feed to provide the fish a varied diet is to be welcomed, as well as supplementing the diet with salad “Romen”or “lettuce”, as well as spinach. Dry food should be used carefully with hardy marine fish. Continue reading

White Amur and silver carp is a herbivorous fish. White Amur feeds on various aquatic plants, rubbing their serrated teeth. The silver carp feeds mainly on plant plankton. These fish inhabit the ponds, which are rapidly overgrown with algae and other water plants. Especially promising is the cultivation in ponds-coolers at thermal power stations, reservoirs, irrigation canals, deltas and rivers. White Cupid and a silver carp is a large fish. They grow up to a meter (carp) and more than a meter in length (white Amur). Before these fish in our country could be found only in the waters of the Far East. Continue reading
