Aquarium fish — ornamental fish. which are contained in the aquariums. Aquarium fish originate from China. The Chinese began to breed aquarium fish since 2000 BC.
The family of aquarium fish
To aquarium fish are fish of the following families:
Dwelling in natural conditions
The majority of aquarium fish in natural conditions live in tropical and subtropical freshwater reservoirs, so when artificial content of some of the fish needed the sea water, relatively high water temperature is roughly equivalent to room temperature of the aquarium.
The aquarium and aquarium equipment
The preferred fish for an aquarium is rectangular in shape, round is valid if the volume of the aquarium is 200 L. the Form is important to adequately represent the fish about space. The content of fish in the aquarium-the glass often leads to death, not because of lack of water and due to nervous disease, caused by the shape of the aquarium [ citation 787 days ] .

What is the aquarium? This is the most common type of vivarium 1. Typically the aquarium is made of glass or transparent plastic. With fish and plants, invertebrates, molluscs and plants, the aquarist creates a private area of the underwater world and supports its living state.
Previously, under the aquarium knew the dishes for storage of various liquid preparations. In a vessel put the various bottles and kegs which were stored in water. In England the term “aquarium” refers to the dishes for the maintenance of aquatic plants, but not animals. The modern concept of aquariums has been formed in the XIX century.
The General public, the aquarium was presented in 1851 at the world exhibition in London, and the term “aquarium” was proposed by the English naturalist Philip Henry Gosse in his book “the Naturalist on the coast of Devonshire”. The book enjoyed great popularity. With the release of his book “the Aquarium: Wonders of the deep sea” it has become fashionable to keep exotic tropical fish and other animals in the house.
The development of the aquarium over the next 100 years is primarily due to the understanding that the aquarium without adequate chemical and technical support can not provide a comfortable environment for fish and plants. Understanding biological and chemical processes occurring in the aquarium, helped to create a more complex aquarium filters,improved lighting systems, etc. Along with this decreased and the cost of equipment. Adequate price on aquarium equipment has made this hobby available to the majority of the population. Continue reading
Living in the wild tropical fish are not spoiled by an abundance of food, and therefore can long without it. But during the rainy season, forage is enough, this time the fish reach maturity and spawn. In favorable conditions the young grow up without any problems and becomes sexually Mature. The main task of the aquarist is to find a substitute for natural forage, To determine the correct composition of the diet have to be able to distinguish three fish groups.
a) fish feeding on plant food (herbivores)
b) fish feeding on small aquatic fauna, zooplankton and bentoel and plant food (omnivorous)
b) the fish, feeding at an early age small, and later a major animal food and fish (carnivores).
In the natural environment with an abundance of food a certain kind of fish chooses the one that fits him best, and in captivity, fish are totally dependent on what they will offer. So among aquarists can often hear that this or that kind of got used to the unusual stern. However, this can be hidden tricky, because the fish can take the feed of hunger and the addiction to food can lead to later health problems. Good food and regular feeding is especially important for young and breeding fish (manufacturers). Giving the fish a natural food, we thereby satisfy their needs in proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, mineral homestake. Different is the case with artificial food, which is slowly but surely becoming the predominant element in the diet of aquarium fish. It would have been useful information manufacturer about the components of the feed mixture. Continue reading
