You decided to buy an aquarium with fish for the first time, but you were confused, in the variety that met you at the pet store? Where to start?
Start with the simplest – get yourself an unusual pet – male Thai cockerel.
Thailand’s cockerel is a single fish, it is very beautiful, but absolutely unpretentious and low-cost fish. There are many colors from which you can choose the most liked rooster.
The unusualness of this fish, namely the male, is that it contains one. This is a fighting variety, developed in Thailand for tournaments. If you plant two males together they will fight each other.
Therefore, you need to buy only one fish and no longer wonder who then plant it to her.
For the content of the rooster you will need a maximum of 3-5 liters of aquarium, any configuration, you can even be kept in a plastic container or in a jar with a wide neck. Neither a filter nor an oxygen generator is needed for water, as the Thai cock breathes air, not oxygen contained in water.
In addition, an additional light source is not required, you can safely put the aquarium on the windowsill, or on the table next to the window.
Everything is suitable for decoration of an aquarium – small or large soil, pebbles of natural or artificial origin, shells, etc. You can create an unusual landscape with sunken ships or hollow vases.
Thailand cockerel is happy to study the unevenness of the bottom. And for you, this is a practice in creating aesthetic beauty in an aquarium and a way to surprise guests.
As for the water, the cock in this is also not whimsical. Changing it once a week, if the aquarium of 5 liters or more, is sufficient. If the volume is less, then change as pollution.
The most important thing in water is to keep it at room temperature. You can put water in the morning to stand, and in the evening pour into the aquarium.
In feeding this fish, everything is also simple. Suitable as feed in the form of dried flakes, pellets, and freezing or live food.
Thirty grams of dry flakes will last almost a year.
This fish lives up to 3 years. Another interesting point is that your pet can safely travel with you. Yes, yes, travel!
If you are going to a dacha or to visit for a long time (more than 5 days), even in another city, you can take your cock with you. This will require a plastic container for one liter of water with a screw cap.
During transportation, close the cover, and stopping to rest – open it for this time. If you go by train, pour half the water into the container and do not close the lid.
Your little pet will easily carry the trip, the main thing is not to forget to bring food with you.
Thus, having bought only one fish, you will be able to find out the important points of aquarism. If, over time, decide that it is not yours, the Thai cockerel will not demand a lot of money and effort from you to keep it.
And if you catch fire and want to continue your practical activity in breeding aquarium fish, then thanks to the cock you will already know almost all the basics of this not simple hobby.
