The Fun and Rewarding Hobby of Keeping Pet Goldfish
Have you ever reduced yourself from having a pet goldfish because of what the previous goldfish owner said about them, especially negative ones? Well, you should not; Especially if you cannot guarantee the truth about why their goldfish initially died! Maybe the owner tries to store fish in a bowl, after taking part in a mythical TV show about a happy goldfish swimming in an adorable round bowl. Or, maybe the environment is not a bowl, but still limiting; Depending on how many goldfish stored by the owner (goldfish need to swim in schools-which apply to almost all types of fish that are known as humans except “Siamese Fighting Fish” or Bettas). Or who knows maybe this person does not go up and rise when it reaches some important points of maintenance. Carp maintenance is certainly not a rocket science, but they are also not a hobby of “set and forgotten”-I have seen too much aquariums that were previously owned which were very good for sale in used shops and other places and that made me sad to see it; Maybe this owner “has no time” for this hobby after a while. I can’t talk to everyone who finally leaves a reservoir-but rather embarrassing seeing some people turn to a valuable hobby. I don’t want that to happen to you. Let’s look at some better points to have pets …
The first is a beautiful color and pattern. あなたが見つけるであろうそこにある多くは完全に「オレンジ」ではありません。 They have golden yellow, black and white patterns. The better goldfish (such as fantail and moor) the more varied these patterns, but even ordinary carp can be striking too. One of me is two white and orange. You will also find that goldfish are friendly, intelligent, alert (you will never forget to feed them because they will greet you in the glass immediately after time!) And they live with a diet that varies quite … , but they are known to enjoy spinach and peas, salted water shrimp and blood worms. If you like the live aquarium plant, I will refrain from keeping them around the goldfish because they will bite it too.
You will also find that goldfish are strong and long -lived (Japanese Koi lives longer up to 20 years or more!) I have the same orange and white goldfish to go for three years so that I can tell you that they are quite difficult. They are not fully immunity-there are some carp diseases such as ICK and Swimbladder that certainly requires the attention and quarantine of solitary. The age of the goldfish depends on things that are different-but not underestimate the “important points” that I will talk about in the next paragraph. The first point is their habitat.
Yes, of course, 100 percent. You have to store it in the tank … not a bowl. I will strongly recommend that you do not buy one of the “mini” or “nano” tank kit if you plan to keep gold fish saving for your Solitary Betta in the future. The tank must be quite roomy not necessarily a giant (in such cases, you will better store it in the backyard garden pool, where they will develop in large quantities.) Many experts will tell you that you need at least 30 gallon tanks. If you have a tank capacity of 29 gallons; Not a big problem here because it’s only one gallon. There is a friendly “natural” tank cleaner like Pleckos and Chinese algae eating that can give your tank a little urge to cleanse. The reason for this larger size is that a larger tank will maintain a minimum water pollution problem. The level of goldfish waste must exceed other freshwater varieties. タンクが小さいほど、水を頻繁に交換する必要があります. You also need a good filtering system and air pump. The heater for aquarium will not be a necessity because goldfish are not sensitive to temperatures like several other types of freshwater fish…
Bole monthly changes (every week) are important; The first time you want to suck about 25% of water, the next time and the next change, about half of the water must be good. Now if you think of pouring the dirty fish water into the drain, take a tip from my brother -in -law who has raised goldfish longer than I have. The bacteria in the laden fish wastewater will make large plant fertilizer if you have an ongoing garden. Even for some ornamental plants, the soil will get urgent push. When you replace the water that is released clean (free chlorine; there is no instant of the type of water), also make sure to change the filter cartridge as well.
You must (and will) enjoy your pet goldfish for a long time to come if you remember all the important points made before. Carp is interesting, not difficult to care for, and quite cheap (depending on whether you see general or luxurious varieties.) Four “general” carp from the pet retailer of the pet shop returns me only one dollar. “Fancy” goldfish start from one dollar and rise from there depending on the type. They will pay you back in dividends when you see how much this little person will get it! I have four inches that you will never guess for two inches, so I hope it doesn’t become bigger. I consider this special goldfish as “alpha male” or “bee queen” from my group.
If you want to bring this hobby to the next level one day, you might want to look into a garden fish pond. Many work is done to arrange a dream pondfish dream of a dream-more than more than a tank guard-remember remember that. Until then, I hope you will get the maximum benefit from raising your carp to be happy and healthy in a good home aquarium!
