Understanding Your Tropical Fish

By Craig Raymond

It does no matter if you are a season pro or just a beginner in fish raring, there are always more things for you to learn and apply. This attitude is especially important if you already own fishes as pets, because being a pet owner you are required to provide them with the best possible environment and food.

More and more newer technologies have emerged to help out with our fish care, as such you might find some of these newer technologies such as changes in water filters, aquarium, and also fish food to be very helpful in terms of helping you to take care of these fishes, always try to keep up with the latest so that you are always in sync with the market.

There are a lot more to learn than just knowing what sort of food you need to feed your fish, and in this article we will talk about some of the things you need to know when raising your fish.

If you are a beginner in fish raring, you might want to consider starting out with a gold fish instead of an angelfish, gold fish are usually more resistant as compared to any other breed as such you will have more time to learn the proper technique and skills when it comes to taking care for your fish.

If your end goal is to produce more of the same fishes, than one of the first thing you want to find out is how to tell the males from the females. Since the signs are not so obvious, especially if you are just beginning in this, you will find it quite difficult and confusing. Males will generally be larger than female, however this is not strictly true for every fish, thus you would need to do some research prior to finding out just exactly what gender they are.

It is important to differentiate to make sure that you have a healthy balance of female to male ratio, especially when you’re trying to breed more of them. It is recommended to have 2 females to one male in order to increase the chance or reproduction. Also keep in mind that the female fishes are only ready to breed after four months, therefore you’ll have to learn how to manage effectively and segregate those that are not ready ones from those that are.

Finally, when it comes to raring tropical fish your environment is extremely important. You need to take into consideration of your water temperature, the decoration within the tank as well as to provide them with enough holes to cower for whenever they are stressed out. You also want to make sure that you are cleaning the tank at least twice a month, to avoid and combat the growth of fungus and bacterial inside the fish tank!
