In fact, the water quality of glass catfish can be maintained as long as the concentration of nitrite is kept. Glass cat has a mild habit, is timid, does not like swimming, and often hides in the dark corner, so it is suitable to plant a large number of aquatic plants in the breeding environment for their habitat and hiding.
How to raise a glass cat?
The feeding and feeding of glass catfish are relatively easy. General live bait, such as water earthworm, Cladocera, Artemia and other glass catfish will eat. The length of glass catfish growing in natural waters can reach 8 cm.
The newly hatched larvae are light yellow. Under the anatomical microscope, beating heart, flowing blood and a large, unabsorbed yolk sac can be seen. For the first 2-3 days, the larvae were lying on the bottom of the water, and no feeding was needed at this time. Pay attention to remove the egg membrane and white dead eggs in time, replace with new water every day, and place the fry in the greenhouse at a temperature of 25 ℃ (it can be placed in the air-conditioned room). At the age of 3-4 days, the larvae can swim freely and begin to find food. At this time, they can use silk net to take a little yolk and stir it gently in the water until the water is slightly yellowish. In order to improve the survival rate of the fish fry, we should feed the mother tablet of calcium element, compound VB solution, oxytetracycline, etc. Feed a small amount of food, three to four times a day. At the age of 7-10 days, Paramecium and Saccharomyces cerevisiae were added. At the age of 3 weeks, the nauplii of Artemia were added, and the compound feed was added gradually. In the process of feeding, we should pay attention to the change of water quality, change water frequently, feed less and add more frequently to ensure the healthy growth of fry.
Breeding environment of Glass Cat
Glass cat fish has a gentle disposition and likes to be raised together. Otherwise, a single glass cat will feel lonely and cause death. It can also be mixed with small fish with gentle and slow temperament. The water for raising glass cat needs to have a certain hardness, but it can not exceed 10-deg; DH. The suitable water temperature for glass cat is 22-26 ℃.
In fact, the water quality of glass catfish can be maintained as long as the concentration of nitrite is kept. Glass cat has a mild habit, is timid, does not like swimming, and often hides in the dark corner, so it is suitable to plant a large number of aquatic plants in the breeding environment for their habitat and hiding. Glass cats are sensitive to the change of water temperature. When the water temperature is lower than about 18 ℃, their transparent body will gradually turn white. If the water temperature continues to drop, they will curl and die.
