Relocation of aquarium fish in the pond
It all started with the fact that I had a broken fire acrylic bathtub, corner shape, the depth of nearly 60 inches and a capacity of 300 liters. After not artful manipulations for the installation of a pond at sunken place in advance, I patched with silicone unnecessary holes and cracks plastic tanks. Don’t get bogged down in the appearance of the pond, will focus on the construction of the reservoir. More than two dozen algae were launched with a variety of ponds and rivers. Snails – pond, of the coil. Frogs and common scoter, as it turned out later hatched out from eggs on the plants. Emergent plants – rushes, sedge, coin, with roots planted in pots with sand. The water in the pond had to be refilled on average in 2-4 days no more than 10 liters, and the normal from the tap, a little chlorinated. In June the water temperature even at night does not drop below 15-18 degrees Celsius.
After two weeks the pond was established a normal atmosphere, when they began to grow plants well and emerged fry from eggs, shuffle the tenants of the reservoir, I ran a few viviparous guppies and goldfish. In the issuance of fish had to the aquarium water gradually add water from the pond to avoid shock for the fish. Just a month guppies increased their population,but after two months, partially they had to catch, they are fairly heat-loving. The veiltail feel great, the family Cyprinidae are less affected by cold water temperatures. Gold fish till October has grown significantly and in the winter they moved into the home aquarium. The next year I added in the pond caught Rotana, which has chosen to itself as the home of the old chipped vase. Rotan behaved very peacefully and did not even touch the long fins of the veiltail.
The care was not complex, partial refilling with water, remove the decayed plants and debris. Coincidence or not, but to the delight of fish diseases during transplantation was avoided. In power quality fish served as mosquito larvae and small crustaceans, such as Daphnia, Cyclops. Aeration of water in practice is not needed, seaweed and fresh water were a sufficient source of oxygen for the fish.
A small area with aquatic animals, well fit into the design of adjoining garden and is very popular with children, and croaking frogs of the cause of such jubilation.
