The Diamond Tetra fish known to aquarium lovers as Moenkhausia pittieri is a member of the Characidae family and originally lived in the Valencia lake of Venezuela and in some of the Venezuelan rivers. Species of fish grow between 2-3-12 cm, but females are usually smaller. Although not a vivid color, Diamond Tetra is a silver-colored, greenish highlight and stands out because of the beautiful reflective scales. In the baby Diamond Tetras, the scintillating effect of scales has not yet developed, but over the years it becomes apparent.
In the Aquarium Environment
Environment, Moenkhausia pittieri is always part of a school with at least six fishes. They themselves have to include other species and the other species must be of the same size. In this school, a man will always be a ruler. This man will endure the others, but he's always under control. The ideal pH range of Diamond Tetras is between 6.6 and 7.0 and has a temperature preference of 74 to 82 degrees (26 to 28 degrees Celsius), and if it is outside the range, it may result in different appearance. Furthermore, these fish are like having many plants in the aquarium and, fortunately, they are not very picky at the time of feeding. Moenkhaussia pittieri will love you living foods, but eat from the flakes to the frozen food. After knowing a little about this type of fish and basic requirements, the breeding steps can now be taken.
Cultivation Diamond Tetra Fish
Cultivation of Diamond Tetra fish results in the corresponding pairs. Older males are longer than females, especially in the back flanks. Although females are probably smaller in males, females ready for breeding are often seen. Once you have selected the Diamond Tetras, you have to be well prepared and conditioned for good food. During the conditioning phase, food and certain frozen foods should be fed. It lasts about 10 days.
While conditioning continues, separate drainage tanks should be prepared. It does not need to be in a very large container, but many plants, especially those with thick leaves. The conditions in the container should be similar to that of the other Diamond Tetras, although not the first release of light in the bowl tank. Soft water should always be used over hard water. Pebbles are not necessary, but some nets must be placed on the bottom of the tank. It must be so far enough for the breeder pair to have enough space to swim. The holes in the mesh should be large enough for the eggs to sink to the bottom of the container. The bowl tank should be placed in a quiet part of the home where fish can not interfere.
After the set time has elapsed, the selected party must be placed in the outlet tank When the night is dark and again, no light is to be used close to the tank. In case the Diamond Tetras match is compatible, the spinning can happen immediately after the fish are placed in the flue tank or it can only last for one or two days. Sometimes the lighting in the environment where the container is located will help speed up the process. Although the man can spend most of his time after the female when the time comes to spawn, the female releases the eggs at the same time as the male releases the sperm. The eggs are then fertilized, in which case soft water is useful in the container. The mesh is very important here because the Moenkhaussia pittiers eat their eggs and to prevent eggs from falling into the net, separating the eggs from their parents. After the spraying, male and female fish must be removed from the flue tank and returned to the regular aquarium.
Although eggs can move within 36 hours, as long as a baby's babies can swim around their bowl. The baking will be very hungry, but you will find things in a lot of aquariums in the first few days. Then the baking dish is acceptable and if large enough, the right size live foods are good for them. It is very important to keep the baking tank clean. Since they grow so fast in the first few weeks, the baby Diamond Tetras looks like adults, though smaller. The coloring will initially be easy, with a breathtaking glittering balance that develops when the fish are 9 months old. Once they reach the size that does not endanger them, they can be moved to the adult container and the bowl can be re-opened with new adult fish.
Cultivation of diamond tetra can be a challenge, primarily because it may require more experiments to find a compatible pair of male and female fish. It is important to keep the adult Diamond Tetra environment healthy so that it does not adversely affect their well-being and late-time capability. Likewise, the outlet tank should be kept clean and regular monitoring of temperature, pH and softness. Sufficient time and resources are needed for the conditioner of the breeding process as this is very important. Always keep the different types of foods, including meals, at all times, even if there is a doubt that spawning may occur. Within a few weeks or months, rewarding your every effort while watching the eggs and seeing that your toast grows and gives you a beautiful glittering balance known to Diamond Tetra.
