Wedge rasping – beautiful and unpretentious hydrobiont

Dear colleagues! Rasbora klinopyatnisty belongs to the carp family and it comes from slow-flowing water bodies of Southeast Asia. The most common fish on the island is Thailand, Sumatra, Java and the Malacca Peninsula.

It entered the territory of Russia back in 1911, and then again in 1955. This aquarium fish is considered one of the most popular among aquarists.

The body of the cuneiform is the owner of a tall, strongly compressed on the sides of the body and flattened tail stem. The back half of the body is decorated with a triangular wedge-shaped spot, which is colored by a blue-black color, which can be used to determine the sex of the fish. The wedge of the males is pointed and reaches right up to the belly, while the wedge of the female is slightly shorter and has a blunt end.

The back is olive green in color and has a silvery belly. The ventral and pectoral fins are pale pink in color, while the caudal and dorsal fins are red.

Males are somewhat slimmer than females and they grow to a length of 5 centimeters.

Klinopyatnisty rasbori are considered peace-loving, unpretentious and quite mobile aquarium fish, which are ideal for novice aquacubes. More beautiful rasbory look in a large flock, which would be counted 10-15 individuals. Peaceful small fishes (ornatuses, red neons, rhodostomuses, terntions, mollies and swordtails) are suitable as neighbors for this species of carp.

Mostly pack rasbor kept in the upper or middle layers of water.

It is best to keep this fish in a long aquarium, the volume of which is not less than 50 liters. Aquarium soil is best to pick up a dark color, to organize various shelters and create thick thickets of aquarium plants.

Aquarium lighting needs diffused. Aquarium water must have the following parameters:

  • water hardness: up to 18 degrees;
  • active reaction environment (pH): in the region of 7;
  • water temperature: 24-28 degrees;
  • weekly replacements of about 25% by volume;
  • filtration and aeration of the aquarium.
  • Rasbor feeds live food (small crustaceans and small bloodworm), dry and frozen food.

The breeding process rasbor rather complicated. To do this, you need to find a spawning aquarium of 30 liters and place in it a pair of bushes of Thai fern or cryptocoryne, pour water into it and make a level of about 20 centimeters.

Before pouring water and planting plants, the aquarium must be sanitized and pre-washed plants. Water parameters in spawning should be as follows:

  • water hardness: 4 degrees;
  • active reaction medium (pH): 5.5-6.5;
  • water temperature: 26-28 degrees.

Water is desirable to take distilled or well settled, which add a little water from the common aquarium. A prerequisite – peat water, which will have the color of weak black tea. The lighting in the spawning bright is not necessary, despite the fact that the spawning takes place under intense lighting.

Before planting spawners, they should be held separately for about two weeks and fed abundantly. After the producers are planted in the aquarium, spawning will begin in a day or three.

The spawning process lasts about two hours. The female spawns the eggs on the leaves of the plants, and the male immediately fertilizes them with milt.

Since not all caviar is on the leaf and many eggs fall to the bottom of the jar, it is best to install a separator grid. For one litter the female can sweep away about 300 eggs. Upon completion of spawning, the producers are deposited and the aquarium is darkened.

If there is unfertilized caviar, remove it. The process of incubation of caviar lasts 36 hours, and after five days the newly hatched fry already swim and eat on their own.

Zooplankton can be used as a starter feed. Mature fish becomes 9-10 months old
