Red aquarium fish

maintenance, care, compatibility

Red fish for the aquarium are considered quite catchy, and not everyone considers it necessary to run them into the home pond. The fact is that pets with this body color can become victims of predatory neighbors, if there are any. With improper compatibility, red fish will be injured.

On the other hand, with good compatibility, red fish can be settled with black, yellow, white, orange, blue neighbors. In a tropical aquarium, this contrast will look great, especially against the background of plants and bright decorations.

Red platies – elegant small aquarium fish (10 cm). Body color is rich in carmine-red pigment, lower fins are distinguished by a bluish tinge.

In order for the chilias to work this color at the age of young animals, they need to be fed with carotenoids. These platies are often used to restore the populations of the Persian family, or to obtain new breeds. Representatives of this breed are distinguished by their active, peaceful behavior, livable.

They prefer to live in a small flock. In the general aquarium, they can produce offspring from guppies, mollies and swordsmen.

Neon red – a beautiful aquarium fish with a neon strip on the back. The main body color is bright red. School fish, lives in the company of 10-15 relatives, so it feels comfortable.

Neons are small representatives of the aquarium world, body size reaches no more than 3 cm. Females are fuller than males, and females have a concave anal fringe. Fish can be kept in an aquarium with warm water at a temperature of 24 to 27 ° C.

Compatibility is possible with small tetras.

Look at the body color of red neon.

Gourami honey red – an attractive color form gourami honey. The maximum size of the fish – 5 cm in length.

The scales are small, red. The fins are transparent. The ventral fins are thread-shaped.

You can keep in the general aquarium with calm fish. Character is active, but shy.

In the tank should be enough thickets of living plants. Preferably dimmed lighting created by floating plant species, as well as dark ground.

Allowable water temperature for maintenance is 24-27 ° C. As a labyrinth fish, honey goura should be kept in stable parameters of the aquatic environment, the temperature of which would coincide with the temperature of atmospheric air.

Gourami periodically swim to the surface and capture a portion of air, processing it in a special labyrinth organ.

The fiery or red barb is a bright aquarium fish of the carp family. The body is dense, rounded.

The tail fin is forked. Dorsal fin large, translucent. Color is found in different variations – from orange-red to pale pink.

At the base of the tail there is a black spot, on the fins there is a dark edging. Red barbs – schooling fish, which must be kept on 5-6 adults.

Males of this species often come into disputes, showing their fins to each other. Barbus can not be settled with long-tailed fish and tail tailed, slow-moving species.

The body size is 6-10 cm, therefore it is recommended to settle with proportional fishes, differing in active social behavior.

Ornatus Red – freshwater aquarium fish originate from South American rivers. The body is small (up to 4.5 cm in length), translucent – the skeleton and organs are visible, there is a dark spot near the gill cover.

Fins can be red-orange or red. The males on the dorsal fin have a black border, the females have a white one. During spawning, the body of the male acquires a rich scarlet hue.

Fishes swim in the middle layer of water, are peace-loving and prefer a company of 6-8 relatives. It is recommended to settle with neon and small, peace-loving species of fish.

The most unpretentious and small aquarium fish with photos

I think many aquarium fish experts will agree that the first place is given to guppes.

Everyone probably knows these fish … even those who have never seen aquariums. We can say that these fish are the fish of all children of the former USSR (they were in all Soviet aquariums))). The fish is very beautiful and unpretentious.

The tail fin is her beauty. The simplicity of the fish is that it can withstand “difficult conditions of detention.”

I happened to see an aquarium with guppies. without aeration, without filtering, without plants, without proper feeding etc. – horror, terrible dream aquarist. Nevertheless, guppies managed not only to survive in such an aquarium, but even tried to multiply.

So to mock the fish of course not worth it. But their endurance and vitality sometimes affects.

2nd place Swordtails

A very famous fish, as a result of persistent selection, a large number of swordtails of various colors and shapes were bred. Males differ from females by the presence of a “sword” on the lower edge of the caudal fin.

Swordtails are kept in flocks in a densely planted aquarium. The minimum size of the aquarium from 10 liters (but better is more).

A good volume of aquarium for a small group of swordtails is 50 liters.

An interesting fact about these fish is that the female swordtail can, at some point, become a male, i.e. change the floor. This is due to the struggle for the survival of the species.

HOW AND GUPPI ARE RECOMMENDED, ALL THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO DEAD WITH THE AQUARIUM.

3rd place Somiki corridors

It should begin with the fact that all aquarium catfish – a priori unpretentious. Moreover, they are “orderlies of the aquarium world”: they clean the soil and eat the remnants of life activity. The corridors are chosen from all catfish, since

in addition to the gill, they have intestinal respiration, those. if aeration stops, they will live for a long time.

The fish are very peaceful, calm. They slowly swim along the bottom in search of food.

In the aquarium they are usually kept in flocks. Fish, do not pose any threat to other inhabitants of the aquarium.

Molly, like guppies – viviparous fishes. Unpretentious and tolerant of poor conditions.

Nevertheless, they are more capricious than the “troika of winners”.

Fish suitable for beginners and young aquarists. The fishes most difficult to keep from all members of the family are demanding of their conditions, they do not tolerate low temperatures, some like “salty” water, like bright light, etc.

All tetras are small, brisk, not capricious fishes. However, they will not be able to survive in “Spartan conditions” as guppies. They need aeration and filtration.

Barbusses are schooling, small fish that can stand up for themselves! If you decide to start a barbus, I recommend to allocate for this a separate aquarium, “barbusyatnik.”

labo content

A wide aquarium with a volume of at least 150 liters, with a group content of 50 liters per individual.

  • temperature 24–27 °;
  • stiffness – for Labe two-color not more than 10o, for Labe green 4–20o;
  • pH – for two-color 7.2–7.4, for Labeo green 6.5–7.8.

Labeo feel better in peat water. To obtain it, it is enough to put a small nylon bag with fresh peat into the filter or next to it, and change it every 2–3 weeks. Mandatory good filtration, aeration, substitution of up to 20% of water weekly.

The lighting is preferably moderate, so algal fouling, which is the main food of these fish, is best grown in a separate brightly lit aquarium or on a sunny window sill on glass plates or underwater objects, and then placed in an aquarium with a labo. Another option is to make a powerful light in the aquarium with labo, allowing the algae to grow, but to shade the bottom with the help of grottoes and large-leaved plants.

Parrot fish, or red parrot (Red Parrot) – a representative of the Cichlow family. It is a hybrid of aquarium fish, which appeared as a result of selection of two representatives of Cichlids. In 1991, the fish became the property of the first aquariums.

Its production has increased, with time it received the name “red parrot”.

The history of creating a hybrid carefully classified, however, this applies to many fish, artificially bred. There is a version that the Red Parrot is a descendant of several South American Cichlovas, as a result of triple crossing. Asian breeders strictly protect the right to the maintenance of this fish.

The red parrot can interbreed and bring offspring, but very few people managed to see their eggs.
