Many fishermen feel that Congo tetras are the jewelery of tetra for their beauty. These are perhaps the largest in the tetra community and the most beautiful because of their color body. There are unusual long ribs so they can recognize them remotely.
They have a peaceful attitude, but they have to be in groups of at least 7-10 years. While being kept in a community aquarium, be careful to select another species. If you keep them with other fungus species, it will be difficult for the Congolese tetras to defend themselves and get over-stressed. They may soon be injured and die.
If you are a novice you should not go to the Congo tetra breeding. It's not easy, and if it's unsuccessful you'll be frustrated. However, if you have some experience in breeding other species, you can rest assured that the Congo tetra is breeding. Here is a list of useful tips –
1. Hold a separate container for breeding. This is the protection of eggs and young people from predators. This tank may be small in size, but must be plants, especially large leaf plants. Also check the tank water to be extremely clean and well-conditioned.
Provide the right foods, including live foods for adults, to get spawned. After transferring these brewing containers, increase the tank temperature slightly to create a favorable environment for breeding.
3. For breeding purposes, select the best color men and women. This is important for healthy and vibrant baking.
4. You must supply a netting bed to the breeder tank because after the spawning the eggs will have to fall and away from the adults. Adults can do eggs because they are not used for protection.
5. In the breeder tank, it should not be a bright lamp and should be kept away from sunlight. This moderate illumination also requires a fast and healthy growth for young people.
6. The eggs are scattered around the container after spilling. The female raises about 300 eggs in a week.
7. These eggs require about seven days of incubation. During this time you should carefully monitor all eggs, because they are likely to produce fungus. Such eggs and unusually looked eggs should be removed immediately from the container
. The cake is a shrimp to provide food for the first 24 hours. Then nourish them with silkworm shrimp and microfibre.
9. Keep in mind that baking is extremely sensitive to water quality and if it is not able to keep water and other conditions high enough, the baking increases will be impaired and may lose its color. Sometimes a large number will die for a little neglect on your part
10. Keeping the circumstances around the container is calm and silent, as this fish is scared for the least possible reason. If baking causes stress to develop, growth is inhibited.
By keeping the right environment and proper nutrition, the small children become fully developed adults in about 4-6 weeks. After that, you can safely move them to the main aquarium and begin to enjoy blinking colors and elegant styling.
