It’s cold and frosty, and, of course, the owners of HOMESTEAD ponds are concerned, is properly prepared their ponds for the winter. However, if certain recommendations of your fish and other pond inhabitants can easily move even the most severe winter.
If the pond is large enough and its depth is more than 1.5 meters, then all its citizens can be safely left in place, through some measures to ensure their safety. Before freezing the water in the pond is saturated with oxygen, and the fish it would be enough for a long time. But the dead leaves of aquatic plants and the waste products of the fish will decompose in cold water and allocate detrimental to the inhabitants of the marsh gas pond.
For saturation of water with oxygen and removal of marsh gas must be cut in the ice hole and to ensure that they did not freeze. In no event it is impossible to break the ice with a hammer or other object. From the strong sound waves can hurt the fish.
To make the hole carefully and all the rules, you can use a simple way, taking a small metal container and adding hot water to gradually melt the ice. You can use the screws – a special device for ice fishing. Keep in mind that the thickness of the ice in the cold if your pond does not covered and will be 40-60 cm
During the winter as little as possible disturb the fish. At low temperatures water pond inhabitants fall into sostoianiia rest (hibernation) and are located at the bottom of the pond. The fish stops feeding and consumes less oxygen. Continue reading
Fillet of silver carp.
To cook a fillet of silver carp, we need a coarse salt without iodine, five kilograms of silver carp.
And now for the cooking oil. To cook this salmon, you will need only a very big fish. Clean the fish from scales, gut it and fillet it is separable from the rest. This can be done in the following way: make a cut only on the back, around the head to the ridge. The head cut is not necessary, then it will be much easier to cut the fish fillet. Along the ridge from tail to head, cut away the skin, hold the knife at an obtuse angle to the spine, begin to cut the meat from the rib bones, carefully and slowly moving towards the tail. The same actions are done on the reverse side.
After obreteniye you will be a great set for a soup, or aspic, because the broth will harden perfectly and without gelatin.
Now back to fillet – cut into its desired size pieces, begin to lay into a container, it is desirable that this capacity was enameled or glass. At the bottom of the container pour a layer of salt, then laid the fish, then carefully cover with another layer of salt – so the stacked layers until then, until the end of the fish, but the last layer must be salt. The dishes lockable flat lid, which put the oppression in the form of cans of water. Continue reading
Outdoor open ponds, which are becoming increasingly popular among vacationers and simply living in the countryside, in winter, of course, freeze. Tightly and freeze. Thick, sometimes almost a foot of ice covers the access of air to the water. Meanwhile, these reservoirs are very densely inhabited by any living creatures. At least – that all sorts of beetles and larvae of dragonflies. In the waters find shelter for the winter frog. And how high is this fish wild or ornamental, sometimes very expensive. And all of them, even those who is in a state of winter hibernation, the necessary oxygen in the water.
Everyone knows that for example carp winter after he buried into the bottom mud. And seemingly no Zamora they are not afraid. But it is in nature, in large enough bodies of water. In the same garden ponds and pools, which are usually overpopulated and aren’t many (if any), and the amount of water attributed to each individual fish is much smaller. And then there appear uncontrolled parasite – frog, and others, also consuming oxygen. In General, in winter under the ice even sleeping goldfish is not sweet. What can we say about the fish, not falling into the hibernation. For example, the roach, the perch and others. As such, playful and not shy fish are a summer decoration of the water, playing at its surface, collecting the fallen insects. Petomane to protect from winter Zamora.
In order to protect the fish from Zamora, it is necessary to ensure the flow of oxygen in the water. Or rather, to ensure contact of water and air, at least in a small area of several square decimeters. I.e. to arrange in a frozen pond wormwood. This can be done in several ways. Continue reading
In ancient times, 65 million years ago (the end of the age of dinosaurs), on the border between the Cretaceous and Paleogene periods, lapped the ancient Tethys ocean . which, in geologically near future had to disappear and leave behind the Mediterranean . The black and Caspian seas and the Persian Gulf. The first two are further connected by the Atlantic ocean, the latest from the Indian.

The formation of the Strait of Gibraltar and the Mediterranean sea (5 million years BP)
The Strait of Gibraltar that separates Morocco from Spain, is only 15 km width. Perhaps the flooding of the plains by the ocean between Africa and Europe and is reflected in the ancient Greek myth of Debelyanovo the flood that supposedly happened in “ancient Greece”*, namely in the district of Dodon and of the river of Aheloy [I think it was near the Caucasus, and then we can talk about the Black sea]. There is another myth, that the rocks of Gibraltar and Ceuta opened Hercules.
The breakthrough of the Ocean through the Gibraltar – perhaps the work of man.

It should be remembered that on the proper selection of fish depend for their future livelihoods and development. In aquariums, the pet shop exotic fish swim. Here and bright blue or crimson cocks, large Crescent angelfish, handsome shiny neons, minors, goldfish and their varieties: veiltail, telescopes and many other showy fish. The combination of various shapes, a range of colors — all this is striking in its beauty and impressive picture. And quite understandable is the desire to acquire the most vibrant and spectacular fish. Fish are living beings with their own habits, needs, tastes, temper, which you should know and consider. For example, goldfish. It is unpretentious, not afraid of temperature fluctuations and not choosy with food. But the mahseer of sumatranus, Vice versa, capricious, effeminate and therefore requires a relentless worries.
Or take game fish. She is very afraid of cold, significant reduction of water temperature may be detrimental. Of course, for all tastes will please. However, choosing fish for the aquarium, it is necessary to consider their features. It is recommended to adhere to the following mandatory conditions of settlement of the aquarium. If its volume is small (about 10 litres), more than three fish in it to contain impossible, as the norm is three liters of water per fish length of five or six cm But will grow more.
Than rupnieciba, the more living space it needs. Therefore, we recommend to buy (or produce) the aquarium at least 30-40 litres of water, which will contain 10-15 fish. To give the fish in the aquarium must also thoughtfully. Combine the fish can only be equal in size, behavior and environmental conditions. Cold-water fish cannot be placed together with warm-water, predatory peace and the Oversight etc. when moving may cause the death of fish. Continue reading
