In aquarium practice is usually to use tap or well water, which in its properties is very diverse. Water is oxide of hydrogen (H2O) and consists of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. In the water many dissolved substances (oxygen 21%, nitrogen 76%, carbon dioxide of 0.3%). Water in contact with soil, plants, fish, the products of decay and alkaline earth elements, acquires new qualities. The water in the aquarium must be free of any impurity metals must not contain large amounts of salts of magnesium, calcium and any other components that are harmful to aquarium inhabitants.
In rural areas often use wells, river and lake water. Before pouring water in an aquarium must be heated to a temperature of 70 C, thereby partially release water from undesirable microorganisms.
Water, potable, and suitable for the aquarium, of course, if it’s not mineral water. At home to fill in the most suitable aquarium tap water, which in most geographical areas of our country is of medium stiffness with seasonal fluctuations within 8 – 12 ‘. Excessive chlorine in it, you can delete, defending water in non-metallic container for 1 – 2 days (complete disappearance of released bubbles), active aeration (10 -12 hours),filtration through activated carbon, adding to it the hyposulphite (thiosulphate) sodium (1 g/10 l) or by boiling for 10 minutes. The last method, the water loses oxygen and must be aerated.
The use of pond water is not recommended, and the water is rain and snow the city is not suitable for the aquarium, as it contains large amounts of harmful solid, liquid and gaseous state. In rural areas, the use of such water is possible, but it needs to be filtered from dust and other substances. Continue reading
Farms (fish farm) is located 14 km North-West S. ROS district of the Moscow region. The area is characterized by the development of mostly marine sediments and high pasture. Laboratornye and ground water is hydrocarbonate-chloride-calcium type. The fish farm is located in water-ecological zone.
The economy territory with the one hand limit of the Cretaceous mountains on the other – the key and a field with perennial grasses. Land not classified as agricultural land and located in slaboperesechennoy the floodplain of streams. Much of the land occupied trees and shrubs. The ichthyofauna of small streams: common gudgeon, loach moustached, verhovka ordinary.
The Key Belogorsk meets trout brook. Ulyanovsk region to treat the area III pond fish farming, as a sufficiently favorable climatic conditions for growing heat-loving fish species. However, the temperature of the water of the fish farm does not exceed 12. 14 °C. the spring water that feeds these ponds, contains little nutrients, sludge is poor in organic substances so that they poorly developed plankton and benthos. The productivity of such reservoirs are non-nutritive.
The objects of fish farming can be fish that require low temperatures, high oxygen content in water and consuming artificial feed. Passing through the ponds, spring water lingers and warms up. In the last cascadeproef the water temperature in summer is 25. 27°S. These waters are used for cultivation of carp and sturgeon. Continue reading
Recently on the shelves of the fishing stores, more varied products, which should come in help during catching of a predator. Not so long ago for the majority of anglers, the term “attractant” was unfamiliar. And if fishing peaceful fish attractants used by many, when fishing for predatory fish using them is a rare event.
However, I decided to do an experiment and spend three out on the water for a closer acquaintance with the attractants and study them real help in catching the most popular predator . Tested only in pike. Time catch the second half of September to early October. The place of fishing – the reservoir with an average flow, as well as fishing in backwaters with no current. The depth of the fishing sites ranged from 1 m to 3 m. Fishing was conducted from a boat without trolling. Bait decided to use a variety. For attractants used two crank popular firms the same blue and white coloring, a silicone small fish in the perch . The competitors were proven and mining Chinese vibrating lure yellow silver colour and spinners produced in Ukraine with the white petals and the head of the fish . All lures are designed for fishing in shallow water. From the attractants I have been bought: the gel is of American manufacture,squirtwoman Ukrainian and Russian production. So it doesn’t look advertising, no name manufacturers, as well as odor attractants.
My first day turned out in perfect weather for fishermen and bad for pike. The air temperature from 10 to 19 degrees. The Western wind of 2 m/s. But in those places where I decided to conduct an experiment, pike were to eat and in bad weather for her. Initially, fishing was done in open water with medium current. In one place were used for bait. Fishing was carried out only in trusted locations pike. Catch decided to start with proven lures without attractants. Continue reading
