And then introduced a new child block. Even a completely new group, they will need in the area. Well, if you're lucky, you fish in a democratic country, to sit down and discuss these issues a new label, no problem. However, they chase each other in tanks, the position of the game until one side or the other, and for smaller areas, and stressed in this regard.

Your sick fish, and the issue of speculation. You will soon decline in fish stocks and the flies, because you are a stranger in the tank.

Therefore, you can do to what? Stress! The majority of fish swimming in the same model. Therefore, the combined mode, you type the new. Mobile accessories or two new factories with new fish. New areas of the small area. However, it is not only the border point, and then add the fish.

Planting date Fish Tank Maintenance

An effective system for the aquarium maintenance routine, that is the difference between success and a non-Tank Tank. It is very easy to do the routine maintenance of the week and even easier to forget things that should be done less often.

Are they or are they normally eat. This may indicate a potential problem. While the tank, a glance at the thermometer. Is the temperature, as it should. And the water must remain constant.

Each week you should replace your water on hand for water changes. Use the 10% to 25% water change vacuum the substrate to remove non eaten food and fish waste. If there is a lot, you may need to feed fish. Clean the glass with a spatula algae. This is a good time for maintenance, removal of leaves and death and once again found that all began.

On a monthly basis, you need things like filter change, cleaning of filters. Do not change your filter media at all, make sure you have about half of them in the space for biological filters work.

Test for water quality every month once the reservoir matured, more often if you have any problems. Write the results, so you can see a trend in the area and the problems before them great.

Simple Step-by-step Instructions for The Production of Fish Fry

It involves the production of artificial minors a sex maturity, the men and women called breeding herd. This is done in a certain amount of relief for a period of 4-6 weeks. A person can be a successful training for the fish fry of catfish at the point of sale and beyond.


The selection of men and women are in the tank of breeding animals. Women are selected and are regulated by the hormone, the hormone for use in the pituitary gland is located on the underside of the brain. The head, brain-box is opened, the pituitary gland is often a small whitish substance on the base of the brain. These are the cream or plastic lenses in a solution (9% physiological salt), can then by recording a 9% salt in one liter of water.

These are with the syringe and needle and injected into fish woman on the side line at the women on the side line with the muscle.

Note that the selected women, all requirements for spawning.

The fish is in a container with a little water over water should not have to be separated to help themselves to avoid the fighting, brushes and unnecessary stress on fish. The females remain to him only between 9-12 clock to 28C.

At the end of this period, the latency of the egg is said to start running and ready to fight.

At that time, the man is a cut side and reproductive organ called man is kidnapped and milk in a dry place.

Note: Do not touch the water content of the milk or milk.

Moreover, everything that is necessary for the success of the reproduction, should be introduced before the reproductive organ of man is kidnapped. The tank must be ready for the network of spawning grounds and all other required information.

About Whale

Whales are marine mammals of order Cetacea which are neither dolphins—members, in other words, of the families Delphinidae or Platanistoidae—nor porpoises. They include the blue whale, the largest living animal. Orcas, colloquially referred to as "killer whales", and pilot whales have whale in their name but for the purpose of biological classification they are actually dolphins. For centuries whales have been hunted for meat and as a source of valuable raw materials. By the middle of the 20th century, large-scale industrial whaling had left many species seriously endangered.

Origins and taxonomy
All cetaceans, including whales, dolphins and porpoises, are descendants of land-living mammals of the Artiodactyl order (even-toed ungulate animals). Both cetaceans and artiodactyl are now classified under the super-order Cetartiodactyla which includes both whales and hippopotamuses. In fact, whales are the closest living relatives of hippos; they evolved from a common ancestor at around 54 million years ago. Whales entered the water roughly 50 million years ago. Cetaceans are divided into two suborders:
* The baleen whales are characterized by baleen, a sieve-like structure in the upper jaw made of keratin, which they use to filter plankton from the water. They are the largest suborder of whale.
* The toothed whales have teeth and prey on fish, squid, or both. An outstanding ability of this group is to sense their surrounding environment through echolocation.

Like all mammals, whales breathe air into lungs, are warm-blooded, feed their young milk from mammary glands, and have some hair, although very little.
The body is fusiform. The forelimbs, also called flippers, are paddle-shaped. The end of the tail holds the fluke, or tail fins, which provide propulsion by vertical movement. Although whales generally do not possess hind limbs, some whales (such as sperm whales and baleen whales) sometimes have rudimentary hind limbs; some even with feet and digits. Most species of whale bear a fin on their backs known as a dorsal fin.
Beneath the skin lies a layer of fat, called blubber. It serves as an energy reservoir and also as insulation. Whales have a four-chambered heart. The neck vertebrae are fused in most whales, which provides stability during swimming at the expense of flexibility. They have a pelvis bone, which is a vestigial structure. Whales breathe through their blowholes, located on the top of the head so the animal can remain submerged. Baleen whales have two; toothed whales have one. The shapes of whales' spouts when exhaling after a dive, when seen from the right angle, differ between species. Whales have a unique respiratory system that lets them stay underwater for long periods of time without taking in oxygen. Some whales, such as the Sperm Whale, can stay underwater for up to two hours holding a single breath. The Blue Whale is the largest known mammal that has ever lived, and the largest living animal, at up to 35 m (105ft) long and 150 tons. Whales generally live for 40–90 years, depending on their species, and on rare occasions can be found to live over a century. Recently a fragment of a lance used by commercial whalers in the 19th century has been found in a bowhead whale caught off Alaska, which showed the whale to be between 115 and 130 years old. Furthermore, a technique for dating age from aspartic acid racemization in the whale eye, combined with a harpoon fragment, indicates an age of 211 years for one male, making bowhead whales the longest lived extant mammal species. Whale flukes often can be used as identifying markings, as is the case for humpback whales. This is the method by which the publicized errant Humphrey the whale was identified in three separate sightings.
A toothed whale, like the sperm whale, possess teeth with cementum cells overlying dentine cells. Unlike human teeth which are comprised mostly of enamel on the tooth portion outside of the gum, whale teeth have cementum outside the gum. Only in larger whales does some enamel show where the cementum has been worn away on the tip of the tooth revealing the underlying enamel.

Anatomy of the ear
Whales' ears have specific adaptations to their underwater environment. In humans, the middle ear works as an impedance matcher between the outside air’s low impedance and the cochlear fluid’s high impedance. In aquatic mammals such as whales, however, there is no great difference between the outer and inner environments. Instead of sound passing through outer ear to middle ear, whales receive sound through their lower jaw, where it passes through a low-impedance, fat-filled cavity.

Whales are widely classed as predators, but their food ranges from microscopic plankton to very large fish. Males are called bulls; females, cows. The young are called calves.
As mammals, whales breathe air and must surface to get oxygen. This is done through a blowhole. Many whales also exhibit other surfacing behaviours such as breaching and tail slapping.
Because of their environment (and unlike many animals), whales are conscious breathers: they decide when to breathe. All mammals sleep, including whales, but they cannot afford to fall into an unconscious state for too long, since they need to be conscious to breathe. It is thought that only one hemisphere of their brains sleeps at a time, so that whales are never completely asleep, but still get the rest they need. This is thought because whales often sleep with only one eye closed.
Whales communicate with each other using lyrical sounds, called whale song. Being so large and powerful, these sounds are also extremely loud (depending on the species); sperm whales have only been heard making clicks, as all toothed whales (Odontoceti) use echolocation and can be heard for many miles. They have been known to generate about 20,000 acoustic watts of sound at 163 decibels.
Females give birth to a single calf. Nursing time is long (more than one year in many species), which is associated with a strong bond between mother and young. In most whales reproductive maturity occurs late, typically at seven to ten years. This mode of reproduction spawns few offspring, but provides each with a high probability of survival in the wild.
The male genitals are retracted into cavities of the body during swimming, so as to be streamlined and reduce drag and to prevent injury. Most whales do not maintain fixed partnerships during mating; in many species the females have several mates each season. At birth newborn are delivered tail-first, minimising the risk of drowning. Whale cows nurse by actively squirting milk the consistency of toothpaste into the mouths of their young preventing loss to the surrounding aquatic environment.

About Blacktip reef shark

The blacktip reef shark, Carcharhinus melanopterus, is a shark of tropical and warm temperate seas.

One of the most common sharks found in shallow (sometimes as shallow as 30 cm) water around coral reefs of Indo-Pacific waters. The water they swim in is usually between 20 and 27° C (70 to 80º F). Unlike, say, bull sharks, blacktip reef sharks do not venture into tropical lakes and rivers far from the ocean.

As its name suggests, the tips of the shark's pectoral fin and dorsal fin are black, with a white underside. Its skin is brownish in color on the top half of its body. It has been recorded at up to 2 m (6.5 ft) in length and over 99 lbs (45 kg) in weight.[1] Its snout is blunt and rounded. The gray reef shark looks similar, and is also common, but is distinguished by its stockier and grey body and its lack of a black tip on the dorsal fin.

A blacktip reef shark's diet consists mainly of reef fish, but they will also feed on rays, crustaceans, cephalopods, and other molluscs.

Reproduction, behavior, and interaction with humans
Reproduction is viviparous, with 2 to 4 pups in a litter. Before giving birth, female blacktip reef s
harks will incubate their young for 16 months. The pups' length at birth ranges from 33 to 52 cm.
This species is not considered social, but can be seen in small groups. While generally shy, they often are curious about snorkelers and scuba
divers. As with most sharks, the body is bent into a sort of "S" shape when the shark feels threatened. Blacktip reef sharks are harmless unless provoked. Incidents generally involve hand feeding or spear fishing, possibly in combination with low visibility.
The blacktip is one of only a few sharks that can jump fully out of the water, a behaviour called breaching. They have also been observed surfacing to look around (spy-hopping).

Population decline
Blacktip reef sharks are often the bycatch from other fisheries and are often wasted. Their populations are declining, and so are the population of many other shark species. Their fins are used for shark fin soup which is a major factor in the population decline in recent years.

In preparation for maintenance, it is better, the Red Devil cichlids in the aquarium with plenty of water and ideal conditions, and the food that they consume a diet. One way to placate large cichlids spawning grounds Red Devil is an increase in temperature in the aquarium at 24-28 ° C (75-82 ° F).

Spawning cichlids for creating the environment is an important part of the process of education. What happens in nature Red Devil akan tilapia select stone, wood or on the ceiling of the cave as a place on this site, and so good for things like in the Cichlid Aquarium.

So, as you make a difference between men and women Cichlid? You will see how the adult male Cichlid clear bump on the forehead and sharp genital. The Red Devil Cichlid man is usually greater than in women. A form of cichlids and a man and woman and the parents of the couple always their baby.

Keep a little nitrate in saltwater aquariums

The ultimate search for Keeper Reef Marine is the settings for the water near the sea naturally as possible. One of the main problems for the hobby is to provide a minimum level of nitrate, although not completely ruled out.

You must have an adequate understanding of the nitrate cycle, here's a quick guide.

Fish produce waste, is located in close proximity to us, it contains ammonia. The ammonia is then processed by bacteria into nitrite called Nitrosomonas. Nitrite into nitrate and then by another bacterium Nitrobacter. The last part of the cycle, where the nitrates are consumed by plants and algae and a change in normal water.

* The first and most important is the regular small water changes. Thus, approximately 10% of the weekly amount of the development of the aquarium with a high organic load, memory aquarium high nitrate and the first place. If your aquarium a small bio-load and nitrates are not encouraged to change by 25% every month to replace the trace elements out. It really is common knowledge and should be part of the maintenance of your corals.
* Use the exact amount of the rock alive is important because it is a natural filtration, and go with a good amount of money for you to continue from small stones and filter allows filtering of the work and impact of nitrification on the water . The money must be at least 24-times the amount of the allocation of the opening of your aquarium, be taken into account, even at low speed, where the position of love corals.
* Use the right amount of sand, many believe, to do what is known as the "nitrate factory" deep foundation can cause problems if they are not full of nitrification bacteria, this May, the time to mature, it is not advisable, with sand a light fog, enough to the surface of an aesthetic pleasure.
* I believe in the sand at any depth not to interfere. The use of a lift is performed with a vacuum cleaner and the substrate, in my opinion should not be made. Deletion of bacteria and the release of nitrate. With this method I have found to the Nitrates Directive.
* T-shirt with his right foot and slowly, at the top of the socks you have problems, I assume you are using water is very general, but the changes that you live in one room 3 with 2? It is not only easier on the pocket also allows the bacteria to the biological. Like a good wine, it matures with time.
* Over the meal can lead to high levels of nitrate, especially in the new aquarium set. If they are not receiving, eating, and then there is a greater burden on the biological aquarium.

Learning to Recognize and Prevent Occupational Diseases and Koi

All animals have a high immune system, to protect against viruses and bacteria that cause the disease. In general, it is sufficient to prevent the disease, but if the load is high, this system of defense of course fail. The same applies to fish and koi disease is usually a result of too much stress caused by the poor quality of water, not enough food and drastic changes in the temperature of the water.

The carp is known as one of the largest fish and the impact of the modern koi. But in their search for the colors and the reasons for the Koi, the breeders are not a burden, their immune system and can thus Koi sudden changes in temperature and water quality.

Koi are underlined by a high content of ammonia in pond water, the poor level of pH, oxygen and not enough food. If these fish are under stress, they can succumb to parasites, fungi and bacteria to his knees in the water. Although the majority of diseases caused by these things can with salt, kanamycin and other drug treatment, it is better to avoid this and focus on prevention.

Locks and other parasites Trichodina is one of the greatest threats to the health of koi. Given your pool with water and care for the health of your collection, the only way, parasites can affect your fish by introducing new Koi in the pond. Regardless of the reputation of the source of your Koi is not 100% sure that it is free from pests. For this reason, the species should be a quarantine. You must be quarantined before the introduction in your catchment area. The quarantine is an ideal of at least 21 days, even your new Koi time to stress to be packed in a crate and transported for several hours.

Choosing a good health of the fish from the pond and then in the quarantine tank setup with your new Koi to help quickly, because these fish are accustomed to with other members of its kind, this is also the possibility to monitor possible differences in behavior of the new fish for the health of your Koi. Usually, the illness of a koi is a tendency to ignore and in an area of the pond or tank.

Koi disease can be easily found by just that the fish swim. If they are unusual behaviors such as scratching its side against the rock or pond, or near the surface or the fans in the last trains, or swim in an uncomfortable position, is a sign that she died as a result of pests or fungi and viral diseases. There are several treatments for sick Koi, but until now nothing prevention. Once in the camp of the test kits on the pH, the concentration of ammonia and oxygen amount can be a long way to keeping your fish, without stress, happiness and health in their home.
