Discus Breeding Diary
At the end of the adventure turned out to be about 2 years to reap the fruits of the ongoing Discus and My Red Melons decided to breed. The adventure of this production experience throughout, I'll be sharing with you here my simultaneously. In this challenging, but pleasant on the way God help us!
Red melon I exactly 20 months. When I first started I got from a manufacturer of hobby Roty domestic production. The first one is female and the second male.
Son 1-2 aydır 15-20 discusun bulunduğu ana tankın içerisinde kendilerine bir bölge edinip terör estirmeye başladılar. Bir gün işten eve geldiğimde bir de baktım ki melonlarım akvaryumun tabanına yumurtlamış başında bekliyorlar. yaklaşmak isteyen diğer discusları uzaklaştırmaya çalışıyorlar. Fakat ana tank kalabalık, hangi birini uzaklaştırsınlar? Doğal olarak bu yumurtalar diğer discuslar tarafından afiyetle yendi. Koruma duygularının gelişmesi için 2-3 sefer ana tanka yumurtlamalarına müsaade ettim desem de inanmayın sabrım gelmedi 🙂 ve hemen kendi yaptığım 50x50x50 ebadında iç sumplu üretim akvaryumuna aldım.
Speaking of other materials used in manufacturing tanks also briefly. As a blue sponge filter material, I've been using Sera Siporax and fiber. I'm going to use in the search, but go to a JBL Nitratex. Water cycle daimini Eheim 600 head engine by running in the low setting. Heater Jagger 50W (100 w, which I've been using the replacement for 50W broken one). The tank on a 0, 4w led lamp night light. The Interior is the most vital task in the production tanks sumplu it seems to me part of the water inlet-mounted apparatus sumpun. This is the purpose of the bracket to avoid clogging of the sump water inlet hole and pups sumpa runs. Long the reason is to increase the surface of the water passage. As small as the tiny particles in the water, but could not cross pups tıkayamayacağı big must be porous. I bought a building for the job market 0.5 cm2 I'm using plastic wire mesh with pores of. Fence into the cylinder around wedding tulle used in sugar yellow. I close with the ends of the fibers. Not less than 12-13 cm length of the bracket is not clogged so easily to your advantage.
For the first time taken to double production tank adaptation, so it was a little difficult. before they get used to the feed conversion. Then gradually got used to it and began regular weekly egg knee. The pair first thing in the sağaltım sürecine and applying internal parasites Flagyl 3 days greatly cleaned up. 1-2 days after I applied a Permasol bath dinlendirdikten and external parasite germ dangers such as cleaned up drastically from the beginning.
Sağaltımdan the next 1-2 month period 5-6 party they poured the egg but I can't exactly ready water production as well as the couple could not get puppies due to inexperience. I haven't played with this in any of the denemelerimin PH. Only conductivity RO tap water using hired around 100 ms. Although most of the eggs not use methylene blue mantarlaşıyordu the remaining eggs were eating parents. The remaining eggs to midnight once had a wire cage and onto reproductive cone 8-10 WAGs saw larvae. But this time it's the larvae when they ate at the moment of yüzüşe. The interesting thing about the job, they're going to be nervous in the cage wire was again placed on the no yumurtlamadı. They placed the glass all the the next party. Mantarlaşmayı to avoid finally decided to lower ph in a controlled manner.
07.02.2015 – Saturday
Night RO tap water using 125 liters and 100 liters of water tank production. After the change of conductivity 97 ms. PH is 6.8.
08.02.2015 – Sunday
Starting this morning 2 hour intervals, each time with 5 ml Prodac Mutaphi Ph-. Every time I measured the ph value of the water before adding. It turns out that all 6.8 never out of the spotlight. The reason for this is that the water buffering. Until then, water buffering does not finish here, tricks, be sure that the ph value of playing capture the moment. Because ph value starts going down, now to add ph-very carefully, and little by little you need to do. Otherwise, the ph value is drawn from the very low levels all of a sudden I could lose my fish. In the evening the water has reached saturation and ph value began to fall. At this point, it's still 2 hours apart this time, 1-2 ml ph-PH value of 6.2 by adding until I dropped it.
09.02.2015 – Monday
In the morning before work, I add 2 ml of the ph. Each with 2 ml 2-3 in the evening party was a chance to add. at the end of the day, the ph value of 5.8. As bait, he founded the frozen blood 1-2 branch, except I'm not something that keep the water clean.
1. Egg and larval stage
10.02.2015 – Tuesday (day 1)
I just got home from work, my beloved bowler up to 100 eggs they had glass knees. Water values are pretty good. Ph a little bit more (5.5 level) would be very good if I could reduce but also passable. 5. conductivity 107 ms temperature is 28 0C. The eggs are sorted according to water exchange and I'm leaving to play with the values. Now the only thing I can do is wait and wait to do very little feeding. Because of the low PH of the methylene blue took the decision of not proceeding.
12.02.2015 – Thursday (day 3)
Mantarlaşma about 20%. The remaining 80% of eggs seems to be filled. Metilensiz I don't think it's bad for a production.
13.02.2015 – Fri (day 4)
I saw the first queues in the morning. by the time I got all evening except for mantarlaşan eggs. It must be because it is double experience half the offspring on the ground in the middle of the window. Queues out to speed up the metabolism, temperature 30 degrees.
14.02.2015 – Saturday (day 5)
I now eagerly waiting for the day they swim free. We have probably Sunday evening or Monday floats. I use this all the way through the production process I made his flush bottom. I inserted a thin tube to the end of the bidet pipe I bought a building from the market. Juice was far from ideal for the production of a bottom drain tank due to the thin tensile 🙂
Aquarium water eksilmemesi water for fiber and into a bowl. then I put it back into the aquarium water again. so the spotlight is on the bottom suckers.
15.02.2015 – Sunday (day 6)
Larvalarda started a little movement. They're going back to the window to leave the window immediately. It's like a sort of swimming training. puppies are generally spread out across all the lenses they look messy. Parents confused and left running.
2. Free Swim and Ridge passing phase
16.02.2015 – Monday (day 1)
Sabah uyanınca ilk işim akvaryuma bakmak oldu. Yavruların çoğu akvaryumun bir köşesinde camda belli bir bölgede toplanmışlar. Herhalde anne baba toplamış olacak. Aralarında yüzenler de var fakat anne baba onları sağdan soldan toplayıp getirip yine aynı bölgeye koymaya çalışıyor. Akşam işten geldiğimde Tüm yavrular yüzmeye başlamış fakat sump camından görünen koyu renkli süngerin olduğu yerde toplananlar mı dersin, akvaryumun içerisinde kafama göre gezerim ben kardeşim diyenler mi ararsın 🙂 Ara sıra anne babayı didikleyen de yok değildi hani. İşte o kaos anları;
The two sides of the aquarium glass and gold plated with external white styrofoam, but I never had the opportunity to cover the sump glass. I put a file filter materials by cutting off the white plastic cover on the back glass between the sump and sump almost all of the glass I camouflaged in this way. I did not do that nearly all offspring are suddenly turned into a mother's back. in the aquarium Discus production is said that there should be dark objects always learn by experience, but also leaves a more lasting effect 🙂
The Cubs ' mother on her back I took all the tiredness that really took the images. Maybe I've seen like that for an hour.
The chicks are usually free to do water change as they pass through the yüzüşe. Because of this few days properly formed blood frozen feed is not giving the rootstocks. 1-2 hour later I did my first water change (15%). It's the same with my water tank water changes temperature. In addition to the rock salt to raise the conductivity (in fact I'm going to use mineral salt but not yet the greenhouse, but I never got it) and I'm using mineral additive liquid discus element. Conductivity in stages three to four times a day between 400-500 ms off I plan to. This is very important for the development of pups skeleton.
17.02.2015 – Tuesday (day 2)
In the morning, Murugan with bait. Half an hour later did the bottom shots and 15% water change. In the evening the same way feeding and 15% water change. Puppies parents. Odd though the lost mother or father is taking over immediately at the sight of your own.
18.02.2015 – Wednesday (day 3)
Yavrular müthiş bir süratle büyüyorlar! bu gün sabah iletkenlik 200 ms di, % 10 – 15 su değişiminden sonra 260 oldu. sabah tavla zarı büyüklüğünden dondurulmuş kan kurdu verdim. afiyetle yediler. Dişi ile erkek minik yavrularına dönüşümlü bakıyorlar. yaklaşık 1-2 dk arayla yavruları birbirlerine tabiri caiz ise iteliyorlar 🙂 yavrular üzerinde olan discus yavruların 1-2 dk beslenmesine izin verdikten sonra zeka dolu bir dönüş ile aniden diğer discusun arkasına geçiyor. Bu sırada açıkta kalan yavrular apar topar diğer discusun sırtına geçiyor. bu iş sürekli böyle devam ediyor… annenin babanın hakkı ödenmez diye boşuna dememişler.. Bu gün internetten sipariş ettiğim sera mineral salt elime ulaştı ve akşam suyun % 20 sini bu üründen koyduğum taze suyla değiştim. iletkenlik 260 dan 336 ms e yükseldi. Hedefim 450-500 MS arası bir iletkenlik yakalayıp o ayarda devam ettirmek. Bir de dün iş çıkışı Musa Akvaryuma uğrayıp JBL nitratex almıştım. Onu da bu gün sumpa ekledim. Aslında çok ilgilenmiyorum fakat yine de ölçmek istedim PH 7.1’e yükselmiş.
19.02.2015 – Thursday (day 4)
Morning and evening 30% water change. Conductivity 400 ms. Continue to grow.
20.02.2015 – Friday (day 5)
I've set up blood in the morning. We were unable to finish and yet I have to catch up on work I do water change. It was good, too. They thoroughly erase when I ate in the evening, their bellies süpürmüşlerdi. In the evening I made 40% water change. Conductivity 467 ms. I heart water change after dana. It is 1-2 hours. In this process the fish spends excessive exertion. Day and night they're feeding their young. It's really hard work. For this reason, the fine mucous membrane salgılayabilmeleri for nutrition. Puppies are becoming increasingly more enjoyable to watch.
21.02.2015 – Saturday (day 6)
The puppies are little impulsive and started to swim. To this day who they leave on the back. It is now more curious. We stopped at a piece of each other close to mom and dad when they come and go between the two. Starting tomorrow night, little by little, I'd better start giving, such as artemia. I'm thinking of giving a one morning and night 2 meals. in the evening at 18:00 in the mechanism. At the same time they're going to be out again tomorrow night. a mechanism also set up tomorrow morning and I'm planning to give them Monday morning. So when I came home from work in the morning and in the evening they will be ready to look forward. (Detailed information about removing Artemia buradan You can get.)
24.02.2015 – Tuesday (9 day)
I gave the first artemia Sunday evening. Of course there were minor interest, but they did not attack. Artemia morning to give the work load of a sudden I decided to make the 11th day onwards. For now, I'm giving dinner only. I also had an interest in male given these days, they got a taste brine shrimp Artemia 🙂's probably steer clear of the chasing blotchy parents unwittingly. then they come right back. Shutting the engine sump to be pulled by the Artemia for half an hour. Yyeterin by the way they feed. Then make the bottom 35% water & water exchange engine so I open shots.
I applied a 5 ml to 100 lt Malahit green yesterday. 8, 10, 12 have to be implemented in a day otherwise the Gill parasite of the mass deaths. They and two other puppies Lili according to gelişemediler. But there's a God fearing and others. I continue to use Mineral Salt Water changes Serra. Conductivity 470 ms.
Here's pups 9 daily;
02.03.2015 – Monday (15 day)
It's been 15 days since Ridge puppies. Malachite Green application ran out on Friday. Nothing against Gill because interference strong up!!!. Despite this, I've lost one baby. The other one at the Aquarium jumped out of the 3 cm of free space. So far, two casualties. Every day in the morning and evening to the Cubs 2 times I'm feeding with artemia. About 30 min along the sump filter I let them hold off the nutrition (parents, again for 30 minutes in this search, I give you my heart or blood founded dana). After that, I'm doing a 35% water change (I don't pay much attention to the temperature of the water is the same temperature as much as possible I'm adding water). To this day this scheme almost never aksatmadım. Conductivity between 450-500 ms. Every day they grow up visible rate. 13. from the day it began to be certain the tail and fins. Now they're in the form of fish larvae form, I'd say. Here's a short video I took this day;
08.03.2015 – Sunday (21 day)
Yavrular iyice balık formunu aldılar. Yüzgeçler kuyruklar finler.. Artemia’yı severek yiyorlar. Anne babadan beslenmeleri min. düzeye indi. Artık pek peşlerinde dolanmıyorlar. Anne 4-5 gün sonra anne babadan ayırsam iyi olacak. Çünkü artık anne babayı ısırmaya başladılar. Günde 2 öğün artemiayı ve 2 sefer su değişimini hiç aksatmadım. Yavrular çok meraklı oldukları için dip çekim işi daha bir zor oluyor. Sürekli borunun ucuna gidiyorlar 🙂 artemiaya takviye olarak yavru discuslar için özel olarak formüle edilmiş yemlerden vermeyi düşünüyorum yakında. Anne baba bağımlılıkları iyice azaldığı için geceleri aydınlatmayı kapatıyorum artık. sadece 0,4 w lık olmasada olur tarzından bir lamba yanıyor.
These days the mother and father bought another production of 50x50x50 tank and pups. Aslında geç bile kaldım 15. günden itibaren bence ayrılabilir. Fakat ilk yavruları olduğu için biraz daha birlikte vakit geçirmelerini istedim. Çift epey bir tecrübe kazanmış oldu bu üretim ile birlikte. Yavruların keyfi yerinde. Bu sabah discusmarketim’e uğradım ve Tropical marka genç discuslara özel D-50 plus baby isimli yemden aldım. öğleden sonra az miktarda bu yemden attım. Çok ince taneli rahatlıkla ağızlarına alabilecekleri ebatta. Önce heyecanlandılar yemin başına üşüştüler fakat bir iki yokladıktan sonra ilgiyi kestiler. Malum ilk defa kuru yem veriyorum. artemia dururken kuru yeme ben de olsam bakmazdım 🙂 fakat gecenin ilerleyen saatlerinde yakından izlediğimde gördüm ki ufak ufak yemeye başlamışlar. 3-5 güne alışırlar diye düşünüyorum. Böylece sabah ve akşam artemiaya takviye olarak kuru yeme de başlamış olacaklar.
So far I've lost 2 puppy. (one was sick and died, and the other is never emerged in the good gelişemeden but had to jump out of the Aquarium) Among them was 3-4 of them are burned (flourish and remained small compared to others throughout). Another 2-3 of them are good, but the development of Finnish is corrupted. The remaining 60-70 are Mashallah very nice. As a result, for the moment this seems to be about 10% wastage in production. I hope I can maintain this rate.

After a long hiatus, Hello again. AW, 4.5 months old. Now I've got all the main tank. At first, my main tank living in some small offensive big discus within 1-2 weeks they got used to living together. Day 3-4 party dana's heart, 5-6 parties granul feed data. Their appetites grow quite well. 6. fill out the months of the new owners will be ready to go.
