Aquarium fish Pheasant Blue: photos, keeping and feeding, reproduction and breeding

Size up to 12 cm. Pheasant blue lives in the waters of Nigeria and Cameroon.

The male is larger than the female, brighter colored, has a tail fin in the shape of a trident. Contained in an aquarium of 50-60 l with a ground of dark sand or crumbs from boiled peat, moderately planted with plants, preferably with a low water level.

Males of the Pheasant are blue-hilly, therefore it is better to keep one male and several females. To feed unpretentious. It is desirable that the part of the aquarium, planted with plants, was poorly lit, which is achieved by placing on the surface of a layer of floating plants (Riccia).

Fish are unpretentious to the amount of oxygen dissolved in water, so their content is possible without aeration. A prerequisite is a weekly cleaning of the aquarium of organic residues with simultaneous replacement of 1/5 of the volume. Water for keeping Pheasant blue GH up to 10 °; pH 6.0-7.0; t 21-25 ° C; salting one teaspoon of salt to 10 liters of water.

To stimulate spawning, they increase the temperature and reduce the total and carbonate hardness. Breeding water: GH up to 6 °; pH6.0-6.5; t 25-27 ° C. Carbonate stiffness is minimal.

Caviar is deposited in the ground from boiled peat chips. Caviar is firm and large, manufacturers do not eat caviar.

Caviar development in water occurs within 3 weeks, in wet peat – 8-10 weeks. Spawning is extended in time, therefore, caviar is sampled once a week, soil with caviar from spawning is sifted through a sieve.

Caviar and part of the soil are laid for incubation in a Petri dish or a jar. The rest of the soil is slightly crushed and returned to the spawning ground.

In spawning without soil, manufacturers stick eggs to plants, in part it falls to the bottom. Good caviar in the first days is completely transparent, then gradually turns yellow. After 10-12 days in the egg, the embryo can be distinguished, then its movements.

The exit from the calf occurs at the stage of the silver eye of the embryo. The female of the Blue Pheasant lays 50-100 eggs per week. Starter feed for Pheasant Blue fry – Artemia.
