Goldfish- The Royalty Fish

Goldfish are now no longer restricted to royalty, being kept by the common people as well. Goldfish are curious fish that will quickly become bored without items or other fish to interact with. Goldfish are minimally territorial, so if your aquarium is already too small for one goldfish, it will certainly be too small for two or more.  Color varieties of goldfish are caused by the varying amounts and arrangement of the pigment cells in the skin. Goldfish are first raised in bowls indoors, allowing for the selection of mutations that might have gone unnoticed in a pond environment. 

Goldfish are normally active, swimming throughout the aquarium.  They are social and can display schooling behavior when kept with the same goldfish for longer periods. Goldfish are often found in association with freshwater vegetation. Goldfish are similar to carp in many respects other than appearance. They are popular pond fish, since they are, inexpensive, colorful, and very hardy.

Goldfish are not a delicate fish as some other fish might be, they can survive in water that has some amount of waste or pollution in the water, but of course to a limit. Common Goldfish are a type of goldfish with no other modifications from their ancestors other than their color.  Common goldfish come in a variety of colors including red, orange/gold, white, black and yellow or ‘lemon’ goldfish.  Common goldfish are social animals that prefer living in groups.  It can be kept in outdoor ponds throughout the year with similar care but they may become sluggish and stop feeding in the winter.

Common Goldfish were first introduced to Japan in the 1500s, to Europe in the 1700s, and to the United States in the mid 1800s. Common goldfish are hardy creatures that can survive even in less than optimal conditions. Common goldfish, London and Bristol shubunkins, jikin, wakin, comet and sometimes fantail can be kept in a pond all year round in temperate and subtropical climates.

The common goldfish are the species most raised in water gardens around the world. Breeding usually happens after a significant change in temperature, often in spring.  Breeding often results in up to 1,000 eggs, with fry hatching in 5-6 days. Goldfish come from temperate regions of the world, and are therefore seasonal breeders. Goldfish are fairly intelligent creatures and will remember the person who feeds them regularly and will remember associations.  Goldfish are coldwater animals that need room to move, breath? and filtration, circulation to remove their copious wastes.

    African Carp Care – How To Manage An Aquarium With African Carp

    The Genus Aphyosemion African Tooth Carp which is not only a hot favorite among fish breeders but also the prettiest one to be found in the market is one species which can be bred in communities. This species has a short life span and it is advisable to keep them in separate tanks. The fish will start contracting their fins and hide themselves in the aquarium corners. The aggressive males of this species fight amongst themselves and therefore have a male put with only other females.
    For those fish lovers who want to breed these carps in a tank would do well to have them bred under shade and among plants which float. Fill the tank bottom with overcooked peat and fill with water which is slightly hard or acidic. For one gallon of water, add a tea spoon of salt(table salt mind you!) to make the water alkaline in which certain fish love to breed in. Some fish are short lived have them placed in aquariums separately. They can be categorized as which breed at the surface, mid level and bottom. The eggs of the first spawn will attach themselves to the leaves of the floating plants. For the second spawn provide fine leaf plants for the eggs to stick to. The third should be allowed to stick to the peat at the bottom of the aquarium.

    Bottom and surface spawners love to live in glass tanks. Since carps eat their own eggs, have them removed to another tank. Maintain the temperature at 25 degrees Fahrenheit. If the peat dries up the eggs won’t survive so maintain the temperature at 65 degrees. Keep shaking the peat while refreshing with soft water and have the temperature kept at 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Fish that breed at the bottom love to move around floating plants and can be bred in smaller tanks. After the female carps have delivered have them separated and clear the water. Carefully remove the water using a small tube to keep the eggs and peat safe. Keep the temperature at a constant of 70 degrees Fahrenheit for the required period. Finally, have the peat broken up but maintain the temperature at 65 degrees Fahrenheit. While you transfer the eggs keep adjusting the temp. to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

    This species is for people with lots of experience at fish breeding so it is advisable that first timers avoid this species. There are other simpler carps like the Brachydanio Rerio or Zebra Danio found in the eastern waters of India, which first timers can have in their aquariums. This variety which is small can grow up to a length of 1 ¾ inches and comes not only in attractive colors like silver, gold, blue and black but it also has a cylindrical body shape. The Reiro species are the best type for people new to keeping fish as these are undemanding as the eat everything provided and can adjust in all types of water conditions.

    Feng Shui, Feng Shui Fish, Feng Shui Aquariums, Feng Shui Fish Aquarium, Feng Shui Fish Amulets

    Fish also drive away misfortune, as it’s one of the good signs in the Buddha’s footprint. The image of a pair of fish is often embroidered on curtains, cushions, linen, and clothes. This amulet has a strong protective energy. In Thailand, children often wear these talismans on their necks (these charms are usually made of gold and precious stones).

    The feng shui fish also have a strong reproductive function, so they symbolize fertility. These aquatic creatures swim happily in the water, and thus are a symbol of happiness and harmony in a couple.

    The most popular species in feng shui are carp (koi), goldfish, and arowana. The amulets are available as figurines, paintings, scrolls, and pendants.

    Goldfish can often be seen in ponds and aquariums, as they bring good energy. Goldfish represent double joy, because the Chinese word “goldfish” consists of two hieroglyphs – “gold” and “happiness”. Goldfish symbolizes success in financial affairs, and it is well suited for the zone of wealth.

    Carp is a symbol of good luck and military glory. The legend says that the carp became known for its prowess, when it swam against the tide to reach the dragon gate and became a dragon. Thus, it became a symbol of perseverance and tenacity. One of the popular paintings today is the painting “Carps passing through the gates of the dragon.” The hieroglyph “carp” sounds like the word “business” in Chinese, so it will help achieve success in business. A carp shown in a pair will bring love.

    Arowana is a rare fish that brings financial well-being; it’s considered a particularly strong symbol of wealth. It should be pink, silver or gold. As a symbol of prosperity, you can hang an image of a golden arowana in the corner of wealth.
    Live fish are also a sign of abundance, and that’s why so many people use feng shui aquariums. A feng shui fish aquarium can not only decorate your home, but also help you achieve prosperity and wealth. If you decide to start an aquarium, remember several important rules. When buying an aquarium, give preference to round or rectangular shapes. Put the aquarium in the east or southeast part of the living room or office. It’s best not to put the aquarium in the bedroom or kitchen.

    It’s best to have an odd number of feng shui fish in the aquarium. The most favorable number is 9, such as 8 golden ones for prosperity and 1 black one for protection. The red is a solar Yan, and black is the lunar Yin. Together, they symbolize the unity and completeness of the universe.

    It’s best to avoid buying the species with sharp fins. If you decide to purchase arowana, note that this tropical specie is very sensitive to changes in water temperature and other conditions. Moreover, arowana will not live in the same tank with other species – it will eat them.

    To attract wealth, you can activate your tank with wealth symbols, such as a money toad or ship with coins next to the aquarium. You can also hang Chinese coins on a red ribbon.
