In recent years, and especially in the last two years, there has been increased attention of buyers to this specific form of koi carp as a “veiltail” carp. Its other names – “Ghost”, “butterfly”, “Voile”, “dragon” and so on. In our newsletter we decided to devote special attention to this specific form of carp.
In order to properly “place” such an interesting fish to a buyer, it is worth to mention the problem of its origin. Traditionally it is believed that the “veil” carp is a hybrid of a goldfish, especially comets, carp and traditional koi different variations.
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.

If your site has a pond, you can breed fish. Fish farming in ponds is an interesting and profitable occupation. Almost everyone in my childhood was the aquarium. However, not all have kept this hobby for life. But it’s not terrible. Importantly, the idea of breeding fish in captivity.
The fish habitat is water. This is for anybody not a secret. But few people know exactly what should be the water that the fish stay away. If you were observant, you might notice: a large grassy puddle, and her boys caught a whole bunch of carp. Or another example is a large lake with picturesque shores, and no matter how much I wait with bait – no one bites. What is the reason?
Back to the aquarium. Remember, if the water in the aquarium began to thicken – the fish began to die. Besides, you regularly use the microcompressor, enriching the water with oxygen. Sometimes heated up the reflector, so that your animals did not freeze. Tried time to feed, feed purchased, depending on the species of fish. In a pond all the same. The fish grew and bred, she needs pure water enriched with oxygen. The water temperature must conform to a certain norm. Keep in mind that the fish in the cold is not propagated. Even fish need a good forage base. Continue reading
An important reserve in increasing fish productivity is the introduction of fish culture in the practice of the method of joint cultivation of fishes of several kinds . that most fully use feed resources of the reservoir. Practice confirms the possibility of growing in a variety of combinations that reduce competition for food fish such as carp, carp, white and variegated silver carp, white Amur, etc.
Silver carp . With the introduction into farms of joint cultivation of fishes of the composition of the productivity of fish in ponds is 20 – 30 kg/ha water area. When grown with carp and herbivorous fish in pond farms of the southern areas by herbivorous fish receive an additional fish for at least 6 – 10 t/ ha, in ponds in the forest-steppe up to 3 – 5 kg/ha.
The silver carp eats all types of algae that occur in fresh water. Its power is supplied by filtering phytoplankton through a kind of arranged Gill apparatus. In Biotechnics of artificial breeding using the method of pituitary injections, where to produce offspring using the pituitary glands of fish / kg females. The ripening females after hypophyseal injections depends on the temperature conditions in the spawning basins. When ripe, the prevailing temperature of 21 – 26 degrees Celsius. Continue reading
