Betta fish is a fish with strong vitality, but that is not why you can keep it lightly. Because if not cared for well, they are still at risk of disease or unsightly color. if you are still wondering about Betta fish farming techniqueswe invite you to explore the topic in this article.
Betta fish food
In the wild, bettas usually eat larvae or small insects. But when we own a betta, we don’t need to follow the complicated theory, just feed the fish with worms, bows, bobo, … or food according to the synthetic formula, we also need to pay attention to the stomach. betta is very small, only 1 seed, so each feeding with a very small amount such as 10 bows or a few worms is just enough, we can divide it into 3 or best, 2 times a day.
Handling fish when newly bought
Before you put the fish in a new house, the best way not only for bettas but for all fish species is to let the bag float on the surface of the lake for 10-15 minutes to homogenize the temperature in the fish bag and tank. feed…
Let fish spawn
Betta fish have a fairly short life span of 2-3 years, sometimes with good care the fish can be up to 4 years old. But when the fish reaches the 6th month or more, we can proceed to spawn them. And the selection of a standard looking fish and hen to produce a good pup depends on whether the parents are good, so there are ways to choose:
The larger the general the better, the color must be very standard of the type, the scale fins must not be torn or pale in color, the pelvic and dorsal fins should be wide, not deformed, and aggressive as much as possible, from the head. The first is to see if there is any floating foam on the ancho’s house, if any foam floats, that one is “fizzy” and we have succeeded 35% already because the temperament of the male fish is very decisive in creating fry.
Just like an anchovy, but grinding fish also need to pay attention to the “belly” to see if their belly is large and round, it is best to catch the fish on the hand cage to see if the anus has “white acne”, if so, the female is ready. ready.
Prepare spawning grounds for fish
Choosing a house for bettas to breed is quite easy, we can use an ornamental flower pot with 40cm glass or a 50x25x25 thick cement lake.
First we should put the female in first, then put the male in a small glue and then put the fish in the tank with the female.
After 1 day, we release the planted fish and the hen in the same tank (for the male or female fish not to attack each other too much) but before forcing, we should feed both of them to be full of nutrients.
After the female has spawned, the male will immediately chase the female to another place, now we should separate the female and re-impregnate after 10 days or 20 days, we can breed again. The male continues to take care of the nest and always rummages through the bottom of the tank looking for dropped eggs to bring back to the bubble nest.
Depending on the weather and climate, 2-3 days after the eggs hatch, about a week later, the fry will be able to swim in the tank and at this time we should separate the father very gently to avoid disturbing the fry and For the temperature in the tank to be 26 degrees, when catching the male fish, we should also rehydrate the best worms.
The female fish is isolated in a clear plastic box on the right, a moss in the middle, a small sponge for the male to release foam (there is also a heater, but maybe in Vietnam it is not necessary because the climate is always warm). ).
