Nothobranchius Plamquisti

Nothobranchius Plamquisti redAnd the light in an avenue of Stars (Wisconsin Area latipes Organization) meeting, we have our usual 10 minutes to start the business and sell the fish auction members. The total number of fish traders and excellent prices. I was not really because I do not care to keep the scope killies aerosols – and occasionally short-lived species, catches my attention. Them until the last auction of unusual large bags, some 20 projects, none of the parties. Beg, just as after the session, providing an escape. Sale!

I finished a pair of Nothobranchius Palmquisti Balcony 94-17. I know it will be sent to you shiver of excitement. No? So maybe if you see the fish. Nothos is one of the most convincing Killifish colored red and blue group took note of fierce African. Palmquisti is no exception. Male has a blue body, each side of the scale of red and blue, red and yellow spots of the dorsal and anal fins. caudal peduncle and tail are the deep reds, you will see all the fish. Balcony 94-17 specified the fish tell you first collected in 1994, implemented in Tanzania, the 17th year of enrollment.

All type Nothos Killifish one year from different areas, wet and dry seasons. These fish hatch out of the pool, formed during the rainy season, grew up in the muddy bottom of reproduction of death, the pool dries up, leaving their eggs in the mud waiting to rest for the next rainy season. They set up a pool may be as low as 3 months or up to 10 months can vary from year to year. This means that the young fast life or death. Many years Killies be sexually mature in four weeks the eggs hatch in three weeks that I old!

I put on, aerosols know why, but our region, Nothos Tang, aerosols have a lot of fans. This may be because of their nature or the reputation of annual earnings growth of velvet. Although it is very easy to keep them down to avoid a teaspoon of salt in each gallon of water for normal water, but is still an issue. If you forget to add back the salt water when you change one, you will get water velvet.

I put my house, no expense empty, so I put them to use freshwater species where there is contamination of water current, only reverse osmosis water. I am an adorable young man, so I decided to try to spawn them as long as I can. I created a bowl gallon bucket with water and reverse osmosis soaked Jiffy 7 peat particles in the cup of RO water. peat peat granules in boiling useless because they are pre-sterilized. Nothos breeding is like playing Prall side which means that their surface, and diving in head first to the turf needs to be fully able to bury themselves in the substrate. 1 particles of peat is suitable for a bowl a gallon bucket.

I set them next weekend, a meeting of four days to lay their eggs. Although the two were in the bowl of peat, I only live feed adult brine shrimp, so I can monitor their intake and to ensure that there are leftover moss pollution. The eggs are laid, I was arrested by the fish and pulled out a network of thin peat. The squeeze excess water from the moss, do a quick search and see if I can find the eggs. The eggs are unclear and the adhesive is very easy to identify. I found some eggs, so I put in a plastic bag of peat, the date and name of the bags of fish from hatching.

Killifish annual fixed the incubation time and graphics available to find this information. One of the interesting things that have been found for many years in which the role of incubation temperature. In general, in a range of incubation temperature of eggs Killifish and shorten the incubation time and temperature. Some Killifish, although it can not be grown in our “normal fishroom temperature of 80 degrees Celsius, I found the hard way. Palmqvist be incubated 4-5 months 70-75 or 10 weeks to 80 years.

After 10 weeks, I left the moss and eggs for a gallon of water a bowl of cold, 75 degrees. It took an hour of the first hatch of fish fry and the day after at least 05. They are small fry food in April, me and the first days of green water. It was then that the baby brine shrimp, and all downhill from there. 4 weeks, I can see the older child is male, but there are still many small fish. I lift the cup from them about 1 week or more, but not space. In six weeks, I can only find two women out of fish was 15. I think women suffer more and more crowded to eat more of their brothers and sisters, but also stressed that sexual intercourse had distorted Killifish so this may not be the case.

Although not the most likely Palmquisti  raise the most beautiful of them, if you give them the conditions.
