Breeding of common carp
Breeding of common carp and crucian carp in the suburban pond
Is it possible to breed carp or carp ponds in the country? The answer is yes! Breeding these fish are quite realistic, even if the artificial pond at the dacha of small size.
Carp and carp fish are unpretentious. which are adapted to the nature of existence in small ponds. Pond for these fish to be warmed and how neprotochny and oblong form. For these purposes, can best approach is already available at the cottage fire pond or dam at the mouth of the stream, you can use peeled and enclosed drainage channel. If it does not, you can hire diggers and they will throughout the day dig its own artificial pond at the dacha. It can be taken as a basis for the dimensions: width of 4 meter length of 6 meters and a depth of 1 to 1.7 meters. When such basic dimensions of the water temperature in the pond in the summer will warm up to 23-25 ° C, a temperature that is favorable for the life of carp and goldfish. Such a small pond suitable for the existence of several dozen fish average weight of 150-350 grams or ten pair of goldfish and carp small.
Before “zarybit” pond. gradually align the water temperature in the vessel used for the transport of fish, water temperature in your artificial pond. This should be done gradually – about 1-2 ° C for one hour. Keep in mind that the difference
heat just 2-3 ° can cause thermal shock and your fish can die literally within days.
Keep in mind that the fish must be fed periodically. Carp carp are omnivorous fish, feeding them will not cause any difficulties as feeding pigs. As the fish feed, you can use worms and insect larvae, fish like steamed grain legumes and cereals. Fish carp breed quite quickly reach a weight of 150 grams. When feeding the amount of feed grain must be no more than 3-5% of the weight of the fish. If you release the pond about twenty carp 150 grams, then you would need for their total weight (three kg) 100-130 grams of steamed corn a day. Fodder for pigs or chickens, are also suitable for feeding fish. Fodder is best to make the water body as a thick dough, pre zameshennogo in a basin or bucket.
Feeding carp fish species optimum exercise 1-2 times a day. and it is desirable to do so in the same time in the space of the reservoir. In rybsovhozah in the feeding of fish and set the bell ringing at each feeding. This is done in order to develop a conditioned reflex in fish feeding, as a result, it will be faster to find food and absorb it better, the food will not turn sour in the artificial pond. Also note, the lower the water temperature, the lower the carp consume food.
Feeding fish in a small pond, it is desirable to produce a special table-pan with high sides, is optimally used for its manufacture galvanized iron, it will be easy to lower and raise the pond. This table is needed above all in order to make you keep track of how much food is eaten, because its excess can ruin the water in the artificial pond.
When flooding artificial pond must take into account the fact that in the hot summer the water level can greatly decrease, respectively, and the number of fish must decrease. The main sign of crowding and lack of dissolved oxygen – carp rises to the surface, as if gasping. In addition, by mid-summer, the fish are usually almost nothing to eat.
The truth should be noted that breeding carp pond in a holiday you will succeed only in the summer. and in the fall it will have to fish. Leave the fish until the spring is not recommended, because in that body of water beneath the ice is simply not enough oxygen to her. Run fish in an artificial pond is possible in the spring, you can sprinkle the ice reservoir of the coal dust, peat or a ground that would quickly melt the ice. In fact, the earlier you zarybite pond, the more weight it is to work up to the end of the season.
Breeding carp with carp in a small natural or artificial pond at the dacha is feasible. If you start doing it in the spring, then in August you will be able to sit in the evening on the banks of its own pond with a fishing rod and catch some fish for dinner.
