Fish and other animals in the pond

Fish enliven the garden pond: for their graceful movements interesting to watch. The role of fish in maintaining the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the water is usually exaggerated, while the benefits they offer by eating mosquito larvae, it is difficult to overestimate. However, the presence of fish in the pond is desirable, but not necessary, since usually little impact on maintaining the purity of water.

When choosing fish, primarily guided by the size of your pond. If you are not strapped for cash, you might want to purchase expensive and beautiful koi. Unfortunately, these fish need special conditions – the surface area of the pond not less than 7.5 square metres and a depth of at least 1.2 m. At the other end of the scale are hardy and unassuming goldfish and shubunkin who are able to live with any, even very tiny pond – it is necessary only to ensure that in winter the surface water is not delayed by ice for a long time. Between koi and goldfish is Golden Orff, which required a pond with a surface area of at least 4 sq. m.

Another important consideration is visibility. Motley shubunkin and black telescopes spectacular aquarium, but in a pond they are lost. Better to populate the pond with bright white, yellow, orange and red fish. The most suitable for this is the movable gold zolotarivka and Orpah, because they always stick at the water surface.

We do not know reliably, what is the situation in Ukraine and on the territory of the Russian Federation known positive experiments of this crossing. However, to receive the intelligible F2 generation of such offspring is impossible, the fish loses the specific characteristics of the species, externally, it’s not like the “veil” of carp, lose the mustache, “leaves” in carp and gets symptoms of degeneration. There are also quite a scientific concept of the origin of the veiltail forms within species through a long process of breeding selection. However, it suffers from incompleteness – the real “veil” carp in the dynamics of its development resembles the traditional carp, the development and selection forms must remind razvijenog.
