If you fish in the fish tired, want to change varieties, breeding techniques to challenge yourself, might raise a few toxotidae. It is a unique method of predation is very interesting, with a fountain of water mouth lurking in the water, the water on the insects or beetles down, then gobble down in the water.
Some people love to see Toxotidae "hunting" performances, specifically for the fish to prepare the site and prey, there are also people can not stand because of water Toxotidae, because accidentally ground water stains, it can be said to hate. In view of the unique water fish in the fish feeding habits, and other differences, like today, we explore techniques for raising Toxotidae, hoping to intend to start Toxotidae to help a friend.
1, about fish tank.
In order to give Toxotidae reserved water space, recommend the use of the high pressure cylinder, feeding water is not too deep, so that the fish can fully demonstrate its ability to water. Toxotidae soda belongs to fish, love of brackish water has certain salinity, the salt content of the water is not high enough, 0.5 - 1%.
In order to create a suitable living environment for Toxotidae, can simulate the natural condition, the stone placed in the aquarium, because the fish love alkaline water, it is not recommended to put driftwood, but also because it is not easy to water, planting grass, hanging in the water can be planted a few potted plants, to create conditions for the Toxotidae prey.
Fish must give the fish with suggestions mainly because the Toxotidae, not only can shoot insects with water, but also out of the water directly with the mouth prey, do not know what this guy not. So in order to prevent it from jumping the cylinder, it must be stamped.
People don't think it necessary to tangle matter, it is mainly the jump height is limited, in the natural environment, Toxotidae 20 cm long can jump from the surface 30 cm, while feeding the family Toxotidae ornamental, which is generally more than 10 cm, as long as we keep feeding water from water along the cylinder has a safe distance it is not out of the tank.
If there are other furniture around the aquarium suggest away, because sometimes we often need to open its water head ornamental performance, so it is best to separate Toxotidae tank to prepare a small room, and hanging a baffle in the height, to prevent the roof wet.
2, how to watch.
We raise Toxotidae is to watch it if it shows water, usually eat very much, it may be too lazy to attack prey, after all it's hard work. So it's not recommended to feed them in the water and keep them hungry all the time so that you can watch their performances at any time.
In my spare time, go to the woods to the lawn, just to catch some insects, such as grasshoppers, crickets, small small small beetles, placed in the home aquarium plants, cover the head, open viewing time. Fish finally saw the delicious, a water column from the water shooting, prey in the "arrow" fell into the water, become fish food.
If you are too lazy to catch insects, can watch the show in the evening when the Toxotidae, closed around the light source, open the aquarium lamp, open the window, only a nocturnal insects will follow.
