Today we are going to talk about what it takes for us to do a water change here at our hatchery. We have developed a very simple system that allows us to change the water in all of our tanks simultaneously, and move 6,000 gallons of water, in and out, in a matter of two hours and fifteen minutes.
Today we are going to talk about how we bag our tropical discus for transportation, whether that be by UPS or air. We explain the unique precautions we take to ensure your fish arrive in your tank alive and well. People always ask us, “How is it that you can send live fish in the mail?” Well, we finally show you here.
Today we are going to talk about five of the most common ailments a discus can get and how to cure them. We will also be looking at some of the symptoms and side effects of each ailment so that you can better identify and determine what it has, and how to treat it.
In this article we are finally going to be making the beef heart formula. For this recipe, we’re going to be using a whole cow heart that weighs two and a half pounds with all the fat on it (weight is variable but the bigger the better). Other ingredients that we will be using are fresh salmon, 10 ounces of spinach, about eight cloves of garlic, six ounces of krill meal and six multivitamins.
We’re going to give you water parameters, temperatures, pH, the whole nine yards, and at the same time show you the conditions that the fish have and where they’re laying the eggs and how the eggs hatching, and how they breeding pairs actually take care of their babies, so welcome aboard and enjoy.
