gold severum

Golden shrimp is a common type of tilapia. Another popular area is the green part, which, however, is less visited than the golden part. The golden part is pressed on the side in the form of a disk. This fish is similar to Discus. But it is cheaper, smaller and easier to maintain than a disc. The gold pieces are bright yellow with engraving on the head and body. The golden section has an affectionate nature, as it can be fed directly from the owner's hand.
They require less maintenance and are used for breeding. They can be fed live or frozen food. Give them high protein foods that will effectively develop their color. Change a small percentage of the water weekly to keep them healthy. Golden Clippers like to burrow into the substrate, so provide them with fine substrate or sand. Also, they can somehow bite into the roots of plants, thereby pressing them hard against the surface of the aquarium. In captivity, it can reach a size of 6 to 8 inches.
They are semi-aggressive in nature and are easy to keep with species of similar size and temperament. Avoid them with Molines, Wrestlers or any other hand fish. You can stock them with freshwater angelfish, catfish, gourds, one-size minnows, and parrot crustaceans. However, during the breeding season, they become more aggressive and like to chase other fish. These are tropical fish and require a certain temperature in the aquarium.

Difference between male and female severum.
A notable general difference is that the golden male has a pointed dorsal fin. The anal fin of the male is also more pointed than that of the female. Another difference is that males have a more developed head pattern, while females have little to no head pattern.

The female also has a dark spot near the dorsal fin. Sometimes a male may have a small hump on his head, known as a nuchal hump. You can easily see the occipital lump in flowerhorn fish.

Breeding golden severum
To breed a golden sword, you need a healthy male and female pair. Gold Severum is ready to propagate at 4 inches. A male can be distinguished from a female by its shape and size. They need to form pairs to reproduce. in conjunction with yourself. You can bring 6-7 young goldfish and raise them together. In the process of growth, they form a pair.

Installing the tank:
For breeding golden roots, the aquarium must have an open bottom. As a fertile soil, you can add bones or thin-leaved plants. Maintain the water condition at the highest level as described in the fish care section. A separate aquarium can be used as a spawning ground, because during spawning golden rods can become aggressive towards other partners. They will chase others away and protect the eggs. Change the water regularly and feed them live food to encourage their reproduction.

When they are ready to breed, you can watch them synchronize with each other and raise their tails. The female lays her eggs on any flat surface in the aquarium, such as stones, slate or leaves. The male then fertilizes her. They will soon be ready to hatch in about 3 days. Eggs that remain unfertilized become white. When the eggs hatch, the parents take care of them. You can eat the chips for a while, but don't worry, a new batch will arrive soon. Golden bark is propagated weekly at intervals of a few days. To increase the chances of breeding, you can move the eggs to another safe place. Simply transfer the stone or wooden substrate with the eggs (after fertilization) to another aquarium under the same conditions.

Always keep eggs in water. You can do this by placing a small cup in the breeding tank, then when the cup is full of water, transfer the eggs to the cup, then take the cup and place it back into the separate container. Also add an airstone to the container where the eggs are.

Mostly, the parents will take care of the chicks for one or two months. They will find a safe place, move them and protect them. You can give him fresh shrimp, small worms or any other porridge.
