    What we commonly call Killifish is a huge family in the order of the ichthyosaurs. It is hundreds of oviparous minnows in the Killifish family. Broadly speaking, it includes oviparous Killifish and oviparous Killifish. Not all spawn Killifishs have a short life span of only one year. Most oviparous Killifish can live in artificial aquariums for 12-16 months.

    1. Basic Water Requirements for Killifish

    Generally, the water is trapped for 5 to 7 days. If there is the sun, it is better to expose the sun to the water and adapt the fish to neutral soft water. The annual general water temperature is about 26 to 28 degrees, and the perennial general water temperature is about 22 to 26 degrees. Best, PH value 6.5 to 8.

    2. Basic Method of Killifish Hatching

    The water quality requirements are the same as above. Each kind of fish has different hair growth time. Generally, we see two small eyeballs inside the egg. It is already clear that the egg has a hair growth rate of 80% to 90%, indicating that it can hatch. Generally, it is better to choose a fresh-keeping box for incubation, because the box is smaller, and it is easier to find the brine shrimp when the fry are hatched. Feed the brine shrimp as much as possible in a place with enough light. Generally, keep the fresh-keeping box filled with 7 minutes of water, put a drop of potassium-based blue, and then pour the eggs and peat soil. Do not pile up the peat soil. The incubation time is basically up to 10 hours. After 10 hours, the fish eggs that have not yet hatched can be collected and wrapped in small enough density paper to absorb the water in the peat soil with a towel. About 6 becomes the best. The best temperature is 26-28 degrees. After 10 hours, the first full shrimp can be fed. This full shrimp must be just hatched, otherwise the fry will not be eaten.

    3. Pay Attention to Several Points of Killifish

    A: Every day, clean the low residue of the box and the excrement of the fry. If the box of the fry is allowed, put 3-4 small snails down. (Cleaning method: straw, transfer fish to another box)

    B: Change the water every two days, one-fifth every time.

    C: The fry cannot be kept too dense.

    D: Fry growth: Generally, after 6 days, you can choose a larger small tank to raise fish and release water leprechaun for filtration. After 25 days, a small number of male fry begin to develop color. After 60 days, the body color of the fry becomes bright. After 90 days, it will mature and breed the next generation.

    In addition, the newly hatched fish is the most difficult. Many new friends are the most headache at this stage, because the opening is a big problem, the small fish comes out very small, most of the common live bait can not eat. As a result, the small fish cannot eat and die. I think the best opening bait is water, all Killifish can open smoothly, and it will not harm the small fish and will not affect the water quality. Vinegar worms are also smaller baits. The advantages are low cost. Insects like to swim and small fish like to feed. The disadvantage is that they are difficult to separate and slow to reproduce. There is also the brine shrimp. The brine shrimp must be freshly hatched shrimp. Most Killifish can still open smoothly. It takes some skills to separate the shrimp and the egg shell. Too much egg shell will cause the small fish to die. Try to be careful when separating. To avoid outside. There is also the use of the above-mentioned types of bait. Egg yolk powder can temporarily supplement the nutrition of small fish, but it affects the water quality very badly. Please clean it up after feeding.

    It is important to feed the bait in time after the little fish comes out, otherwise the little fish will die soon. After the fish come out, they basically rest at the bottom of the water, and can swim for a few hours. It is also related to the constitution of the fish. Some of them can swim normally soon after hatching. Small fish are generally interested in live bait. Healthy fish will actively feed on the live bait. When they are full, they will stop eating. Don’t worry about the small fish being strangled. If you feed the water and vinegar insects, you can see a whitish and bulging belly. If you feed the brine shrimp, you will find an orange-red belly. Insist on feeding multiple times a day, observing as much as possible every time to see if there are small fish that do not eat, if it is not eating every time, take care of it separately. After feeding, use a straw to suck out the residual bait, otherwise it will produce a lot of flocculent things.
