Wakin aquarium fish (goldfish): photos, keeping and feeding, breeding and breeding

Wakin (Carassius gibelio forma wakin) is a kind of goldfish, it is believed that he is the progenitor of the forked tail species. Of course, the size of a wakin makes it more suitable for keeping in a pond than in an aquarium.

These pets are very popular in Japan, in China it is called King Yu or Weikin.

The length of the body of the vakin can be up to 30 centimeters, but less in an aquarium. This is a long-bodied fish with an interesting color: the main colors are white, red, silver, you can meet orange, beige, yellow individuals.

Color can be both combined and monophonic. The tail of the wakin is short but forked, the other fins are of medium length.

Wakin maintenance and breeding

For Vakina require a large aquarium, at the rate of at least 80 liters for two fish. Goldfish are very sensitive to lack of oxygen, so aeration in the pond must be present, and also equip the aquarium with a filter.

Temperature range can vary from 18 to 22 degrees, rigidity – up to 25, pH – 5.0-8.0. Soil is better to choose light, you can use small pebbles or sand, lighting – muffled, top.

They feed the wakin with both live and dry food, regularly give it vegetable supplements, but do not overfeed. The first signs of overeating fish – it begins to swim on its side, becomes lethargic, in this case, reduce the diet, arrange fasting days.

The breeding season is spring-summer, a spike in spawning is a temperature increase of several degrees. Individuals are considered sexually mature at the age of 2 years, the females have a rounded abdomen, and the males begin to actively “strike” behind them.

During one spawning, females can sweep up to 2,000 eggs, after which the producers are sown. The spawning volume should be about 100 liters; two or three males and a female are launched into it.

At the bottom of the aquarium should lay a separator net or plant leaves, the incubation period – up to 3 days, after which the larvae appear, and then the fry. They are fed with live dust and special feeds.
