Cockerel fish: how to ensure its health?

Among fish Home aquariums cockerels – almost the most original individuals. They differ from average fish:

  • extraordinary appearance;
  • fighting behavior;
  • feeding features.

A caring and conscientious owner always thinks about what to feed the cockerel fish. Selecting the menu, you should consider the presence in it:

  • protein component;
  • minerals;
  • vitamins;
  • carbohydrates;
  • biologically active substances.

Being naturally predatory in nature, as well as being accustomed to get food for themselves, often in battles or hunting, representatives of Betta Splenders can not do only a vegetable diet. For fighting courage and energy they need meat (live or frozen).

Moth, pipe scypter, artemia are best suited. You can use earthworms.

Such pets will not refuse from ground beef or ground seafood.

It should be noted that the mouth of a rooster is small in size, so special attention is given to grinding food.

Products must be fresh and clean. By purchasing them from a reliable person, you should freeze it in reserve and break off the right amount at a certain time.

Meat food should be included in the menu 3-4 times a week. It does not need to be mixed with other components, otherwise the fish may begin indigestion.

The basis for such dishes may be:

  • cucumber;
  • squash;
  • nettle;
  • celery;
  • cauliflower;
  • seaweed, etc.

Before feeding, you need to wash the products well, sort them out, taking away the poor-quality parts, chop them and put them in small pieces in the aquarium.

These components are for fish a source of natural minerals, vitamins, essential biological substances. They are easily digested and almost completely absorbed.

Pre-cooked “salads” can also be stored in a frozen state, beforehand divided into small disposable portions.

Using this type of feed, it is not difficult to experimentally determine its by the amount of. Usually it is 2-3 granules per individual.

Before, how to feed a rooster fish granules need to offer a “trial treat”. After his positive assessment by the fish itself, you can proceed to the organization of such feedings.

Often can hear that cockerels need to feed cereal. Today, they are offered by many manufacturers of fish feed.

Their main advantage is light weight: thin plates float on the surface, giving the fish that live in the upper and middle layers of water to get enough.

In addition, they are quickly soaked and convenient for individuals with small mouths, as well as fry.

Commercial flakes have different color and size. The choice depends on the type of living fish, the composition of water (especially) and the presence in the diet of other components. If only flakes are used, it is necessary to purchase such a composition that is recommended for daily use for cockerels.

If this is an additional component, you should choose a fortified composition, supplemented with minerals and biologically valuable additives.

Important! When using multi-colored flakes water should not be painted.

Otherwise it speaks of their low quality and danger to the life of the fish.

Probably, if you ask the rooster, how many times to feed him, he would have difficulty answering. He is able to eat constantly.

Moreover, being constantly in nature in a state of hunting, he eats his prey right away.
