Microcollection Galaxy (Celestichthys margaritatus) – content, breeding

Nano-fishes: Micro-collection galaxy (Celestichthys margaritatus / Danio margaritatus) Roberts, 2007.

margaritatus – means “decorated with pearls.”

Margaritat, Micro-collection galaxy or star Rasbor belongs to the carp family.

Margaritata from very small lakes of Myanmar, covered with dense thickets of plants.

The type of terrain is an area of ​​flood plains formed by damming in spring for agricultural purposes.

The water is only about 30 cm deep, transparent, in places dense thickets of aquatic plants, mainly from the Hydrocharitaceae families, which includes species such as Elodea, Egeria and Blyxa.

Description: Rasbora star – very tiny fish about 2 cm, maximum – officially recorded size of only 21 mm. Fish have a very unusual and bright color.

Males have a deep blue body color and intense red and black stripes on all fins, except the pectoral. Spots on the body pearl white to cream color.

During the spawning period, the belly becomes reddish, the overall color of the body increases.

Females have a less pronounced blue-green body color, more faded spots on the sides, the spots do not spread on the front part of the abdomen. They tend to grow slightly larger than males and have more rounded body shapes..

Aquarium parameters: Margaritat can be kept in an aquarium of any size, from the smallest nano-aquarium to a huge 300-liter. A microseed requires a lot of lush vegetation, among which will be floating plants, it helps reduce fearfulness.

Fish do not like mobile water, but, nevertheless, aeration with filtration is necessary.
Water: Suitable temperature conditions – 22-28 degrees; pH: 6.5 – 7.5; medium hardness.

Nutrition: micro-collection prefers live small food, although the moth also will not refuse. Dry quality food is also acceptable.

Fish eat food in any water layers.

Daily addition of live and frozen food such as daphnia, artemia and the like to the diet will not only lead to an improvement in color, but also stimulate the fish to reproduce.

Content: best of all, Micro galley galaxy feels like a big flock of its kindred in an aquarium with dense vegetation. The number of fish depends on the volume of the tank; in a 20-liter aquarium, a school of less than 20-30 individuals will be invisible.

In large aquariums can contain several hundred of these fish.

The galaxy gets along well with all kinds of peaceful and medium-sized fish. Rivalry usually occurs between males with a brighter color than the rest.

They can drive other members of the pack, but they do without fights and injuries.

Breeding: breeding is very simple. Already by the age of 3 months, fish are ready to lay eggs. In the spawning aquarium, you need to place moss and small-leaf floating plants and run a couple or a small flock of microassembly.

It is advisable to catch fry, as the producers eat them. A large number of floating small-leaved plants and live food reduces the amount of caviar eaten. It is categorically impossible to run into the spawning snails that adore the caviar of the galaxy.

Eggs Micro galaxies are very tiny, the larvae hatch on the 3rd day, on the 3rd day they are able to feed and swim independently.

Growing fry: the size of the fry microassembly is about 4 mm. In the daytime they swim, and at night they are fixed on the leaves or walls of the aquarium. Initial feed can be rotifers and ciliates, then Artemia.

In normal development, the fry grow up to 1.5 cm by 1.5 months. The size of the adult fish is 2 cm – the fry reach 3 months.

Coloring begins to appear by 2 months, and is fully formed only in six months.

Micro-collection galaxy is included in the Myanmar Red Book.
