article: Food and nutrition
When it comes to fish an adequate living space, heat, light, shelter and a clean environment, the only major thing left to do is feed them. In nature, fish feed on insects, aquatic crustaceans, worms, vegetable matter, virtually all that water currents bring in their way. Food for fish can be classified as "natural, culture and industrial preparation.
Natural Foods: Foods include natural Daphnia, Cyclops, Tubifex, arenicole and other annelids, small insects and mosquito larvae and adults of other flies. The Daphnia, commonly known as water flea can be collected in many ponds and pools, from spring to autumn. Together they capture the Daphnia is often the Cyclops, which look similar to Daphnia, but with two big bags ovigeri external catch fish with pleasure that the Cyclopes are not to be put in an aquarium containing very small fry because they get eaten. The tubifex worms are found in the filth, the mud of rivers, especially near sewage discharges. They are small red earthworms that are put in running water for several hours to clean it before giving it as food for fish, you should use a "mangiatoria" float. Fish that feed on the bottom, especially those of nocturnal habits, like a small amount of Tubifex introduced into the aquarium just before sunset. The larvae of mosquitoes and other Culicidae, are floating near the surface, in stagnant waters and deposits of rain water as anal breathe through gills. To catch them you need a fast screen shot, because the larvae make their way to the bottom of the bin as soon as the water is china. A safe food for fish fry and shrimp (Artemia salina) in its first larval form, the nauplius.
Food in culture: The culture of live food is pretty easy. You can do a culture of infusoria the first to provide food for the fry rot in water leaving a bit 'of plant material (hay cut lettuce leaves or chopped banana peel) with small amounts of putrid liquid that comes from it can feed the tiny fish. The dry Artemia eggs can be stored for several years and then open them in salted water for 1-2 days administer as nutritious and healthy. Many fish require vegetable matter in their diet, such as algae (grown in the tub or "scraped" from other aquariums), chopped spinach or lettuce or fresh peas.
Industrially prepared foods: Foods for aquariums have come a long way, today the ability of manufacturers of pet foods has led to the modern food preparation flakes and pellets. The modern industrially processed foods, as well as providing all the proteins, carbohydrates and fats needed, are also prepared to behave differently when they are immersed in water.
Standards for Food: In the feeding, especially if it consists of live foods, the greatest danger is represented by super-power. E 'essential to feed sparingly, the food is not eaten by fish fed and soon sought because of pollution problems. Many aquarists have the habit of not giving food to their fish about once or twice a week to control their eating. We must reassure beginners that their fish will not starve if the owners will move away for a week or two during the holidays. It 's far better to come home and find the fish hungry but healthy, rather than finding the tub too polluted for the zeal of a neighbor who gave the fish "just a little' more food, because they seemed so hungry" . The best rule for any aquarium is to give just enough food can be consumed in a few minutes and remove what is left to avoid disappointment.
