zebra danio

Zebrafish is one of the most popular tropical fish because it moves quickly and does not require much care. This makes them popular among beginners. Plus, they're beautiful, durable, affordable, and compatible with your fish makes it all in one package. The zebrafish is narrowed at the ends, compressed at the sides, and has five horizontal lines along the body.

In the aquarium, zebrafish can grow up to 2 inches. They live up to 3-4 years, depending on the conditions. They are omnivores and can eat almost anything you give them, but try to feed them live food that is rich in protein. They live happily in groups of 5 or more individuals. If they are not in a group, they can become irritable and prone to disease. Male zebras compete for females in groups, developing their coloring.

An aquarium requires at least 10 gallons, which is about 40 liters. They are peaceful in nature and do not harm plants. They work well with tetras, cattle, catfish, cod, angelfish, gourries and catfish. Avoid stocking them with aggressive fish. They are easy to breed and lay eggs. However, they will eat the eggs, so you can use a brooder net or box to separate the parents. They also come in several species, such as the leopard and the giant raccoon.

the difference
Finding the difference between male and female zebrafish is a rewarding task. The male form is like a torpedo. Between the blue stripes on the body, they have golden veins. The female is larger than the male and has a whitish belly. Female zebras are fuller and softer in color. An important difference is that the female has small genital papillae in front of the anal fin. It also has silver lines between the blue lines instead of gold lines.

Zebrafish are among the easiest spawning fish to breed. You can easily tell the male and female apart by looking at their color and shape. Breeding requires one adult male and one adult chick. Zebrafish are about to spawn 1.5 inches long. You can house zebrafish and let them breed, or you can keep male and female zebrafish in separate breeding tanks. They lay hundreds of eggs at a time, and the males fertilize them in the aquarium water.

The most common breeding problem is that zebrafish will usually eat the eggs, but you can protect them by placing balls on the bottom of the tank so the parents can't get to the eggs. Most often, the male fertilizes only the female. However, you have to put 2 guys on the girl.

Spawn induction and tank configuration
A minimum aquarium size of more than 5 gallons is required. But the bigger the tank, the better. Now feed the fish a high protein diet consisting mainly of live foods such as mosquito larvae, daphnia and mosquito larvae. Change 10% of the water every two days. Also add about 2 inches of marble or substrate to the bottom of the container. The water level will be about 2-3 centimeters above the foundation. Set the temperature to about 77 degrees Fahrenheit and the pH should be about 7, which is neutral. Add an aquarium sponge filter to the aquarium. We need to drain the water into the tank. Add artificial or live plants to the aquarium.

Egg-bearing female can last up to 1 week. When the female is full of eggs, her belly expands and you can see it. Raise the temperature to 80 degrees Fahrenheit overnight. The heir may be able to have the whole school appear at once. After courtship, the fish may spawn in the morning. Now the female drops the egg into the marble shard and the male fertilizes it. After a few hours, the abdomen of the female zebra shrinks, which means that the female has laid all her eggs. Turn off the filter and only add bubble stones. Now transfer the adult fish to another aquarium. To protect the eggs from mold, you can add a few drops of malachite green. The eggs can hatch in about 3 days. Soon they will come out of the balls and become free swimmers.

fried food
For several days, the sperm receives natural food from the egg sac attached to its body. If they eat the egg sacs, you can put Infosuria tablets in the tank because they are too small to eat other food, or you can ask the aquarium vendor to fry the food.
Change 5% of the water every day. Remember that the temperature of the new water and other conditions must correspond to the temperature of the pan. Otherwise, the seeds may wither and die. Do not disturb the frying pan. Do not overfeed fried food. Otherwise, leftover food will damage and pollute the aquarium. If possible, vacuum the food residue from the tank, but do not fry. After 2 weeks you can give them crushed flakes or other crushed food.
