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. Continue reading

Food for carp

One should distinguish between foods used for fish production in ponds and in the so-called industrial environments (fish tanks, pools) where fish are kept at the super-dense plantings (up to 250 ind./m). In ponds, even at high planting densities (over 5 thousand ind./ha, or 0.5 individuals/ m2), the fish has the ability to consume natural food that is a source of biologically active substances — vitamins, minerals, and valuable protein. Therefore, pond feeds does not impose such stringent requirements on the balance and value of diets.

Quality set of feeds with a high enough level of protein, vitamins and other components can be improved by the fish due to consumption of biologically valuable natural food. At stocking density of fingerling carp in ponds 5 thousand ind./ha the proportion of natural food in the content of their intestines is not less than 10 — 15%, with a density of 30 — 35 thousand ind./ha, it is further reduced, but is still 5 — 7% of the daily diet on average during the season.
