maintenance, care, compatibility

  1. Feeding the fish should be carried out twice a day, flaky or granulated feed. Goldfish can still eat frozen, live, vegetable, artificial foods. Very much like peeled peas, which is useful for digestion. Vegetable food (cucumbers, zucchini, salads) finely chop to make it easy to swallow. Overfeeding pets should not be – it is dangerous to health.


  • Quality maintenance and care must take into account the parameters of the aquatic environment. Test water for nitrites, ammonia and ionic hydrogen (hydrogen) pH. Ammonia should be 0, the pH should be 6.5-8.0, and the degree of nitrate is allowed below 20. If this degree is above 40, then you have a very fish-filled aquarium, or you do not replace the water at the right time! If ammonia and nitrites were detected in the water, therefore, bio-filtration in your tank has not yet been established. Permissible water temperature is 15-20 ° C.
  • Caring for the tank should be conducting a weekly replacement of water. Once a week, change 30-50% of the water in the aquarium. Updating all aquarium water is dangerous for wholesome unicellular organisms that cleave fish waste. It is mandatory to do the process of dechlorination before making fresh water in the aquarium.
  • Clean the gravel one in 2 weeks. Do the procedure using a vacuum gravel filter device that cleans the litter while draining the water. For tropical aquariums, it is recommended to perform this function once every 30 days, but for goldfish (there is more than enough waste from them), always provide a clean environment.
  • Spend time with goldfish as often as possible. Caring for her involves constant communication and eye contact. When she gets used to you, the content of the pet will be even more beautiful. Veiltails will begin to recognize you, and when you take care of them, they will begin to recognize your hand while nursing, and not be afraid of it.

  • If your goldfish happened to be on the floor, or a cat got out of the aquarium (this happens often), quickly wet your hands, and with wet hands, run the fish back into the pond. So she will not be under great stress. Be sure to cover the tank lid so that such cases do not recur.
  • Keep track of the scenery in the tank. If you notice sharp corners, rotted trees, broken glass or ceramics, immediately remove them from the tank. All decorations before placing in the aquarium should be processed in boiling water.
  • The capacity of an aquarium for a goldfish must be at least 50 liters. In such an aquarium, you can settle up to 6 individuals, it is dangerous to settle more – they most likely will not survive due to excessive pollution. You can share your neighbors with goldfish.

    It may well get along with them scalar, catfish. Before you start an aquarium, familiarize yourself with all possible diseases of goldfish.

    Knowing the symptoms will help you quickly recognize the disease and save the fish. Here are some basic rules for keeping a goldfish in an aquarium:

    • Do not skimp on the “living space”. For a goldfish you need a large aquarium. This is more convenient, it is easier to maintain biobalance.
    • Buying the right filter. You need to choose an aquarium filter with the ability to pump air. A goldfish needs oxygen-rich water.
    • The ideal bottom for keeping fish is gravel. It contains beneficial bacteria. These bacteria consume ammonia and thus lower its level in water. Try to choose coarse gravel, small fish can eat.
    • Do not rush to populate a new aquarium. Let the biobalance settle in it. You can run snails and catfish there for a while. They a little “pollute” the aquarium, then the water will be suitable for running the fish.
    • Periodically check the following water tests: pH level (it should be 7-8), ammonium level, nitrites and nitrates (up to 40 is considered normal).
    • Place a thermometer. Goldfish belongs to tropical species. In cold water, it simply will not survive. The ideal water temperature for goldfish is 21 ° C.
    • Change water regularly. For an aquarium of 5-10 liters, it is enough to change 20-30% of water. Doing this is enough once or twice a week. In the new water, you can add a special conditioner. Complete replacement of water can disrupt the biobalance and harm the inhabitants of the aquarium.

    SHUBUNKIN-GOLDEN FISH CONTENTS BREEDING DESCRIPTION FEEDING

    According to the shape of the body, shubunkin is an ordinary goldfish. The fins resemble another species of goldfish – the comet. Caudal fin not forked fork.

    The main distinctive feature of this breed is transparent scales, which is why it is sometimes called scaly-free. Variegated color, dominated by red, yellow, black and blue colors.

    The most valuable specimens of shubunkin have a color dominated by blue colors. The blue color in coloring appears only in the second – third year of life.

    These fish are not very demanding of conditions. The main thing with its content is proper feeding – the key to success is the balance of the feed.

    The fish is susceptible to intestinal diseases and gill rot.

    For the content you need a spacious aquarium with clean water without impurities. The minimum volume of the aquarium 80 liters per pair.

    Pearl neighbors should not be active and especially aggressive fish – barbs, cichlids, gourams, etc.

    Optimum conditions of maintenance: temperature 15-30 С, hardness dGH up to 20, pH 6-8, intensive filtration, regular water changes up to 30% per week. Prefers a community of its own kind, bright light, an abundance of free space. At registration of a reservoir it is recommended to use loose small-fraction soil, stones, snags, live or plastic plants, including floating.

    Design elements should not have sharp edges about which fish can tear off the fins. The maximum size is 20 cm.

    The peculiarity of the fish is that it loves to rummage in the ground. As the soil is better to use coarse sand or pebbles, which are not so easily scattered fish.

    The aquarium itself should be spacious and species, with large-leaved plants. Therefore, in the aquarium it is better to plant plants with hard leaves and a good root system.

    GOLD FISH CARE CONTENTS BREEDING COMPATIBILITY DESCRIPTION.

    Goldfish require carefully selected aquarium conditions. First of all, you need to understand that keeping one fish requires at least 50 liters of water.

    However, as the number of fish in an aquarium increases, an increase in their population density is allowed.

    At the bottom of the aquarium should be a coarse-grained soil, because the fish love to rummage in it. Pebbles need to pick rounded, which do not have sharp edges. The content also implies plants, only it is better to let them not with small leaves, since the dirt lifted from the ground will settle on such leaves.

    Floating plants will also be useful – they can be used for feeding.

    Now let’s talk about the parameters of water: its temperature varies from 16 to 24 degrees (lower temperature is needed in winter, as the summer period approaches, it is necessary to gradually increase the temperature of the water); rigidity – at the level of 8-18 degrees, the acidity is needed around 7.

    In general, water should be given maximum attention (after all, its quality affects even the life expectancy of the fish themselves, i.e. it depends on how long the fish in question live). It must be rich in oxygen, must be clean.

    Every day should be replaced about a tenth of the water. Without a filter can not do.

    Inadequate water quality provokes disease.

    Speaking of longevity. How long do these funny inhabitants of the water live?

    No one can name the exact period how long they live, but there is a case when a goldfish has lived to 34 years without a single disease. How long do they usually live?

    From 3 to 10 years. The length of life of these creatures depends on what their content.

    Now consider compatibility. Here it is necessary to take into account the variety of goldfish, because not all species have complete compatibility with other fish.

    In addition, even the compatibility of fish with each other is not always observed. Check compatibility with one or another fish is still not worth it.

    In any case, peaceful and calm neighbors, not too large, will ensure almost absolute compatibility.

    Shubunkin – a goldfish: content, compatibility, photo-video review

    Order, family: Carp.

    Comfortable water temperature: 15-30.

    Ph: 6-8.

    Aggressiveness: not aggressive 10%.

    Compatibility: with all peaceful fish (danios, thorns, speckled catfish, neons, etc.)

    Personal experience and useful tips: There is an opinion (especially for some reason, from the sellers of pet stores) that when buying fish of this type you should be ready for frequent cleaning of the aquarium (almost with a vacuum cleaner))). This opinion is justified by the fact that the “Golden Fish” nibbled and left a lot of “Kakul”.

    So, this is not true. He himself repeatedly turned on such fish and at the moment one of the aquariums is busy with them … there is no dirt – I spend the easy cleaning of the aquarium about once every two weeks.

    So, do not be scared of sellers tales. Fish look very nice in the aquarium.

    And for greater purity and control of “kakulyami”, bring more catfish into the aquarium (speckled catfish, catfish, acanthophthalmus cules) and other aquarium orderlies.

    It is also noted that these fish love to eat vegetation – do not buy expensive plants in the aquarium.

    Description:

    Shubunkin is another breeding form of “Golden Fish”, derived in Japan. Suitable for maintenance in spacious aquariums, greenhouse and ornamental ponds.

    In Japanese pronunciation, its name sounds like shubunkin. In Europe, the first fish appeared after World War I, from which it was imported into Russia and the Slavic countries.

    According to the shape of the body, shubunkin is an ordinary goldfish. The fins resemble another species of goldfish – the comet. Caudal fin not forked fork.

    Fish in respect of feed unpretentious. They eat quite a lot and willingly, so remember that it is better to underfeed the fish than to overfeed them. The amount of food given daily should not exceed 3% of the weight of the fish.

    Adult fish are fed twice a day – early in the morning and in the evening. Feed is given as much as they can eat in ten to twenty minutes, and the remnants of uneaten food should be removed.

    Food: large frozen and dry food, including specialized, intended for cold-water ornamental fish.

    Feeding aquarium fish must be correct: balanced, diverse. This fundamental rule is the key to successful keeping of any fish, be it guppies or astronotuses.

    Article “How and how much to feed aquarium fish” talks in detail about this, it outlines the basic principles of the diet and feeding regime of fish.

    In this article, we note the most important thing – feeding fish should not be monotonous; both dry and live food should be included in the diet. In addition, you need to take into account the gastronomic preferences of a particular fish and, depending on this, include in its diet ration either with the highest protein content or vice versa with vegetable ingredients.

    Popular and popular feed for fish, of course, are dry food. For example, hourly and everywhere can be found on the aquarium shelves of food company “Tetra” – the leader of the Russian market, in fact, the range of feeds of this company is striking. In the “gastronomic arsenal” of Tetra are included as individual feed for a certain type of fish: for goldfish, for cichlids, for loricarids, guppies, labyrinths, arovan, discus, etc.

    Also, Tetra has developed specialized foods, for example, for enhancing color, fortified or for feeding fry. Detailed information on all Tetra feeds, you can find on the official website of the company – here.

    It should be noted that when buying any dry food, you should pay attention to the date of its production and shelf life, try not to buy food by weight, and also keep the food in a closed state – this will help avoid the development of pathogenic flora in it.
