Comet aquarium fish: content, compatibility, photo-video review


COMET

Order, family: Carp.

Comfortable water temperature: 20-23 S.

Ph: 5,0- 8,0.

Aggressiveness: not aggressive 10%.

Compatibility: with all peaceful fish (danios, thorns, speckled catfish, neons, etc.)

Useful tips: There is an opinion (especially for some reason, from the sellers of pet stores) that when buying fish of this type you should be ready for frequent cleaning of the aquarium (almost with a vacuum cleaner))). This opinion is justified by the fact that the "Goldfish" nibbled and left a lot of "kakul". So, THIS IS NOT TRUE !!! He himself repeatedly turned on such fish and at the moment one of the aquariums is busy with them ... there is no dirt - I spend the easy cleaning of the aquarium about once every two weeks. So, do not be frightened sellers tales !!! Fish look very nice in the aquarium. And for greater purity and control of "kakulyami", bring more catfish into the aquarium (speckled catfish, catfish, acanthophthalmos kyuli), and other orderlies from the aquarium !!!

It is also noted that these fish love to eat vegetation - do not buy expensive plants in the aquarium.

Description:

One of the fish included in the so-called family of "Golden Fish". The fish is unusual and very beautiful.

The body of the comet is elongated with a long ribbon forked tail fin. The higher the grade of the fish specimen, the longer its tail fin. Comets are very similar to voilehvosta.

Coloring options for a comet are different. Of particular value are individuals whose body color is different from the color of the fins. Basically, the body color is red-orange with the presence of sometimes white and yellow. The color of the fish is affected by the degree of coverage of the aquarium and feed. The best way to preserve the originality of the coloring of a comet's goldfish is fresh food, good lighting and the presence of shaded areas in the aquarium. Fish length up to 18 cm, life expectancy is about 14 years.

These fish are not very demanding of conditions. The main thing with its content is proper feeding - the key to success is the balance of the feed. Fish is susceptible to intestinal diseases and overeating.

For the content you need a spacious aquarium with clean water. Neighbors should not be active and even more aggressive fish - barbs, cichlids, gourams, etc.

Comfortable parameters of water: temperature 20-23 C, aquarium water hardness 6-18, pH 5.0-8.0. Reinforced aeration and filtration.

The peculiarity of the fish is that it loves to rummage in the ground. As the soil is better to use coarse sand or pebbles, which are not so easily scattered fish. The aquarium itself should be spacious and species, with large-leaved plants. Therefore, in the aquarium with the best to plant plants with hard leaves and a good root system.

Fish in respect of feed unpretentious. They eat quite a lot and willingly, so remember that it is better to underfeed the fish than to overfeed them. The amount of food given daily should not exceed 3% of the weight of the fish. Adult fish are fed twice a day - early in the morning and in the evening. Feed is given as much as they can eat in ten to twenty minutes, and the remnants of uneaten food should be removed.

Feeding any aquarium fish must be correct: balanced, diverse. This fundamental rule is the key to successful keeping of any fish, be it guppies or astronotuses. Article "How and how much to feed aquarium fish" talks in detail about this, it outlines the basic principles of the diet and feeding regime of fish.

In this article, we note the most important thing - feeding fish should not be monotonous; both dry and live food should be included in the diet. In addition, you need to take into account the gastronomic preferences of a particular fish and, depending on this, include in its diet ration either with the highest protein content or vice versa with vegetable ingredients.

Popular and popular feed for fish, of course, are dry food. For example, hourly and everywhere can be found on the aquarium shelves of food company "Tetra" - the leader of the Russian market, in fact, the range of feeds of this company is striking. In the "gastronomic arsenal" of Tetra are included as individual feeds for a certain type of fish: for goldfish, for cichlids, for loricarids, guppies, labyrinths, arovan, discus, etc. Also, Tetra has developed specialized foods, for example, for enhancing color, fortified or for feeding fry. Detailed information on all Tetra feeds, you can find on the official website of the company - here.

It should be noted that when buying any dry food, you should pay attention to the date of its production and shelf life, try not to buy food by weight, and also keep the food in a closed state - this will help avoid the development of pathogenic flora in it.

Comet - aquarium fish

A comet is a type of goldfish (Carassius Auratus) with a luxurious tail that is significantly longer than its body - the result of the painstaking work of breeders. It happened at the end of the XIX century according to some data in America, on the other - in Japan. The truth, as we know, is always somewhere in the middle. So it was decided to assume that the comet was bred in the USA by the naturalist Hugh Mullet based on one of the subspecies of a goldfish imported from Japan. On the characteristic features of the golden comet, the rules of its content in the domestic water reservoir and the difficulties of breeding will describe below.

What is the golden comet?

This inhabitant (her Latin name is Carassius gibelio forma auratus (Bloch, 1782)) of many domestic reservoirs with a slightly elongated body has an unusually long forked tail (it can be 2-3 times longer than the body), both parts of which hang in the form of beautiful tapes. The longer the tail of the fish, the higher it is valued. With a magnificence of a caudal fin, a comet can be compared only with a tail feather.

If the shape of the body of the individual has a slightly bloated form, experts consider it as a selective marriage. However, some ichthyologists consider such pets representatives of a different breed. Especially good is the comet, which has elongated dorsal and ventral fins, harmoniously combined with a lush tail.

The color of the comet is multivariate; however, pets whose body color contrasts with the color of the fins are in greatest demand among aquarists. So, in China, silver comets with bright yellow or red fins color are of the greatest value.

In most cases, the body of these pets has a rich red color with yellow or white patches. The shade of the color of aquarium pets of this species can vary depending on the conditions of their maintenance and diet.

In order for comets in an aquarium to always have an attractive appearance and bright harmonious coloring, they need to ensure:

  • optimal diet;
  • sufficient illumination of the reservoir;
  • good aeration and filtration;
  • shaded places in the aquarium.

Optimum conditions of detention Carassius gibelio forma auratus

For very active and fairly large (up to 18 cm in length) cometary fish, a spacious tank is necessary, especially if they are to be kept together.

Populate pets in the water at the rate of 20 square meters. see one individual, taking into account that moving comets are able to jump out of the reservoir.

Although it is believed that this type of Carassius Auratus is unpretentious, still certain parameters of the water in the aquarium should be followed:

  • t of water - optimally 20-23 ° С, reduction to 15 ° С is acceptable;
  • stiffness - 6-18 units;
  • pH - 8.0 units ...
Bearing in mind that how attractive comets feel in a reservoir depends on their visual attractiveness, as well as the health of future offspring of fish, you should not bring the conditions of pets to the limits of their survival.

Therefore, everything should be foreseen:

In case of poor heating Your home needs to be able to heat the fish tank.

At the time of summer heatwhen t ° C air in the apartment rolls over, you need to put the aquarium in the coolest place.

Requires special care maintenance of cleanliness in the reservoir. Since Carassius Auratus are large and consume a lot of feed, the capacity is rather actively filled with the products of their vital activity. For high-quality cleaning of the reservoir, a high power filter is absolutely necessary, as well as timely cleaning of pet food residues in the tank. Part of the water in the aquarium with comets requires regular replacement.

Follows tocontrol the status of aquarium plants, which golden pets constantly break in. If the plant looks stale, does not show signs of active growth, then it is worth checking its root system, since dead vegetation also pollutes the reservoir. In general, in a reservoir with comets, it is better to plant out plants with strong branched roots, so that they can survive when the animals constantly dig the root soil.

Selecting plants for a reservoir with a flock of this kind of golden pets, give preference to hard-leaved ones. On the one hand, they will perform a decorative function, and on the other hand they are guaranteed not to be uprooted or eaten during the first hours of their stay in the tank. Qubit, Vallisneria, Sagittarius, Elodieus and others will fit perfectly.

Pond lighting should be sufficient to emphasize the attractive color of pets.


Nutrition

What are the breeding descendants of goldfish really unpretentious, so it is in food. Their diet includes equally vegetable, dry and live food, absorbed by them with a big appetite.

However, this is precisely the danger of overfeeding pets. To avoid this, you need to follow certain rules:

  • the fish should eat daily feed in an amount not exceeding 3% of its weight;
  • feeding should be twofold - morning and evening;
  • the duration of feeding should be 15-20 minutes - everything that was left uneaten after this is removed from the aquarium.
Adults with optimal nutrition are able to withstand a hunger strike lasting several days without compromising health.

Breeding

Comets become sexually mature in two years. The beginning of the spawning period of pets — this usually happens in the first month of spring — is indicated by their behavior and external changes:

  • in males, the appearance of characteristic warty formations on the outside of the gill covers can be seen;
  • females increase in volume, their bellies are filled with caviar;
  • males actively pursue future moms, trying to get as close as possible to their ovipositor.

Additional stimulation of spawning is achieved by:

  • a few degrees increasing the temperature of the aquarium water;
  • separation of females and males for some time;
  • devices of several unloading days on the eve of spawning.

Spawning should be spacious, filled with fresh settled water. At the bottom of the reservoir there must be a protective net, as these fish eat their future children.

After spawning, the producers are removed from the spawning farm, and the roe without the threat of being eaten develops within 3-4 days.

After this time, fry appear in the reservoir, for better survival they should ensure t ° of water at 22-25 ° С. These newborns are weak and very vulnerable, so for the fastest growth they need to create the most benign conditions of maintenance and provide abundant high-calorie food. Usually during this period they are fed live dust, and a little later full-fledged live food in the form of:

  • rotifers;
  • Artemia;
  • tubers and other things.

The comet is a peculiar, peace-loving fish that can get along with other non-aggressive species. If you provide her with a comfortable life, she is able to live in a domestic pond up to 14 years old, delighting aquarists with a bright appearance.

Comet fish - content in a home aquarium

The comet fish is a bright representative of the carp family. The second name that is often found among aquarists is “golden fish”. This is the most beautiful representative of your aquarium, which, moreover, can perfectly get along with all the peace-loving fish.

The opinion that comet fish are very unscrupulous is controversial. You just need to have a few catfish, which are considered to be the orderlies of aquariums. And you can enjoy the spectacle of the beautiful and graceful representatives of the aquarium fauna. Beautiful photo proof of that.

Appearance

Comet fish are very beautiful and very unusual in appearance. The body is somewhat elongated and ends with a luxurious forked tail fin, which makes it look like a veiltail. Fin length reaches ¾ of body length. The longer the tail - the more valuable the aquarium fish. The dorsal fin is also well developed.

The color options for fish are varied - from pale yellow with white patches to almost black. The color is affected by:

  • feed;
  • illumination of the aquarium;
  • the presence of shaded areas;
  • the amount and variety of algae.

These factors can affect the color shades of the aquarium fish, but it is impossible to change the color drastically.

Several photos will demonstrate the color scheme of "goldfish".

Another factor that influences the value of the cometary fish is the contrast in the color of the body and the fins. The greater the tone difference, the more valuable the copy.

Since the comet is an artificially cultivated ornamental aquarium fish, the only flaw in the experiments is considered to be a slightly swollen abdomen, which, however, does not spoil the appearance of the "golden fish".

Conditions of detention

Comet aquarium fish are very peaceful, albeit fussy. To them in the neighborhood you can choose the same calm and peace-loving relatives. It is necessary to take into account their peculiarity - the ability to "jump out" from the aquarium. Therefore, in the summer, it is possible to keep them in garden ponds, but with good aeration and filtration of water.

Recommended in an aquarium of 50 liters the content of one individual. The most favorable conditions - the capacity of 100 liters for a pair of fish. If you want to increase the number of inhabitants of the home "pond", proportionally increase its volume at the rate of: 50 liters per fish. But the content of more than 10 individuals in the same tank is impractical.

Cleaning in the "fish house" should be carried out at least 3 times a month. The frequency depends on the number of individuals living in the aquarium.

Since cometary fish love to dig the ground, you need to choose small pebbles or coarse sand as a coating. Plants should be with good root system and hard leaves.

Temperature ranges from +15 to + 30 °, but optimal for winter is + 15- + 18º, for summer - + 20- + 23 °. Larger or smaller indicators negatively affect the livelihoods of individuals and their reproduction.

Breeding

Comet fish breed very well at home. To do this, you need to install a spawning aquarium, and create a favorable microclimate there.

  1. The spawning tank should be about 20-30 liters.
  2. The bottom is certainly with sandy soil and small-leaved plants.
  3. The optimum temperature is 24-26º.
  4. To stimulate spawning, the water in the aquarium is gradually heated, increasing its performance by 5-10 °.

Usually, one female and two two-year-old males are chosen for spawning. As soon as the temperature in the tank rises to a level that is comfortable for spawning, the males will start actively chasing the female through the aquarium and she will begin to lose eggs all along the perimeter. Males will fertilize the spawn.

Immediately after this, the “parents” must be removed from the spawning farm, otherwise they will eat the hatched fry, which should appear on the third or fourth day after spawning. You can feed them with "live dust" or any other food for the fry of goldfish, which is sold in abundance in pet stores.

Feeding rules

The general rules for feeding comets are very simple. And if you do them correctly, then the fauna of your aquarium will long please the eye. Under favorable conditions, fish can live up to 14 years.

Comets are very voracious and if they are saturated enough, this can provoke intestinal diseases. It is imperative to observe the timing of feeding and the amount of feed.

The diet should include live and vegetable food. Its amount should not exceed 3% of fish weight per day. You need to feed twice a day - in the morning and in the evening, preferably in the same time limits. Feeding time ranges from 10 to 20 minutes, after which the remnants of the uneaten food should be removed from the aquarium.

If the nutrition of comets is carried out correctly and fully, they can, if necessary, endure a week-long hunger strike without harm to health.

Comet Fish - Long-tailed Eaters

The comet fish is one of the selection forms from a goldfish from the genus of carp carp family. Thanks to the attractiveness of the fish has become popular around the world. There are several versions of the origin of comets. One indicates that the fish were bred in America in the 1800s, and the other to Japanese origin. Comets are beautiful and unpretentious pets, the content of which is within the power of all aquarium hobbyists.

Gold

Description

The comet has an oblong body and a beautiful long tail, often 2–3 times longer than the body length of the fish. The shape of the tail is fork forked, which resembles a voile-tailed fish. The fins are also elongated, fluttering like ribbons. The body shape ichthyologists distinguish signs of degeneration of the breed. The body should be flat and elongated, and a rounded abdomen indicates changes in genetics. The value of comets is also determined by their color.The most valuable are the fish with different colors of the body and fins. Comet goldfish has a red-orange color with white or yellow spots. Red fish can be various shades of this color, from orangish to blood-scarlet. There is also a black breed called "black velvet", when the fish is painted completely in pure black.

By the nature of the comet is peaceful and calm, they develop rapidly and actively. Keep in the middle and lower layers of water. In the aquarium comet can live up to 14 years.

Content

Adult specimens are up to 18 cm in length; their content is more suitable for a pond than for a small aquarium. Therefore, for these fish will need a large capacity of 120 liters per pair. Mandatory cover, as the fish often jump out of the aquarium. Need enhanced aeration and high-quality filtering. Regularly replace a quarter of the volume of water, because the fish do not tolerate dirty water. In the warm season, the temperature in the aquarium is maintained from 18 to 23 ° C, in winter from 15 to 18 ° C. Hardness 9-25 °, acidity 6.5-8.

Like goldfish, comets love to rummage in the substrate, so coarse sand or unsharp pebbles are chosen as soil, placed on the bottom with a thickness of 5-6 cm. ground and settling on the leaves. Suitable Vallisneria, Elodieus, arrowhead, sagittariya, pod. You can’t place spiky objects that comets can injure their fins about. Comets need good lighting and shelters. In the shaded areas, the fish often hide. For registration of capacity use snags, smooth stones, plastic plants.

Red

Feeding

Comets are picky about food, like a lot and eat tasty food. Therefore, you should not overfeed them, otherwise they face obesity, fraught with sterility of fish. If the fish nevertheless began to get better or turn over on their backs, they should be immediately put on a unloading diet. Healthy fish can last a week without food. Adult fish are fed 2 times a day, and leftover food is removed. Each feeding procedure is designed for 10–20 minutes of eating the feed, after which food residues must be caught to avoid poisoning of the water with rotten food.

Aquarium comet eats live and frozen food in the form of bloodworms, earthworms, seafood, feed. From plant food fish eat nettle leaves and lettuce. For feeding gluttonous comets in the aquarium, you can keep floating plants such as riccia and duckweed. To maintain the brightness or improve the color of comets can be fed with specialized feed for goldfish.

Breeding

Comets reach sexual maturity by 2 years. In females, the belly is full, full of caviar. Males on the gill covers and pectoral fin show signs of readiness for reproduction in the form of chipping or grains. Breeding of comets is best done in the spring in a separate pond from 35 liters. Sandy soil, small-leaved plants and a protective net for catching eggs are placed. For one female, 2-3 mature males are selected. Previously they are kept separately for 2-3 weeks. In spawning temperature rises to 24-26 ° C. Stimulation of spawning occurs by gradually heating the temperature. Males chase the female, which scatters eggs throughout the spawning ground. Eggs settle on the leaves of plants or fall into the protective grid. In total, the female spawns up to 6000 eggs. At the end of spawning, the producers are removed, otherwise the parents will begin to devour the eggs. After 2-3 days, the eggs mature and the larvae appear. After hatching the fry they are given starter feed in the form of live dust or special feed.

Black velvet

Compatibility

Comets are usually kept with calm peace-loving fish. Optimal content with danios, catfish, neons, terration. To assist in cleaning the aquarium, you can choose to neighbors to the comets of sweepers such as antsistrusov, speckled catfish and other orderlies. It is not recommended to combine comets with large and aggressive cichlids, scalars, gourami, cockerels, barbs and tetras.

Diseases

Comets tolerate salinity up to 12-15%, so when a distinctive disease appears, 5-7 grams of sea salt per liter is added to the water. The signs of disease include the appearance on the body of fish plaque type semolina, as well as gluing fins. The fish may begin rubbing against objects and swimming in jerks. Comets can be subject to the following diseases: mycobacteriosis, carp pox, gastric inflammation, inversion, common cold, dropsy, ringworm, scabies, scale clouding. Fish are deposited in a separate container and begin treatment that is suitable for a particular disease.

Aquarium comets are excellent inhabitants of aquariums that have earned the genuine interest of many aquarists for their beauty and character traits. By following all the rules and providing the fish with good care, you can enjoy their company for many years.

Comet Goldfish

The Comet Fish is a selective form of the Goldfish. She was bred in the United States in the 1800s. These aquarian inhabitants are representatives of the genus Karasei, so they are characterized by a fairly simple body structure. A truly luxurious tail, a long one with a split and a deep cut, testifies to belonging to the elite of the fish kingdom.

Comet

Content

The nature of the fish is very calm and peaceful. They get along well with all representatives of the class Goldfish, as well as with tetras, aquarium catfish, viviparous.

Aquarium water for the maintenance of comets should have the following characteristics:

  • temperature: 20-23 degrees, although individuals feel quite normal at a lower temperature (up to 15 degrees);
  • rigidity - 6-18;
  • pH - 5-8.

Part of the water should be replaced regularly. The volume of the aquarium depends on the number of inhabitants. On average, one representative of Goldfish should have at least 40 liters of water. 70 liters is enough for two fish, that is: the more inhabitants in the aquarium, the greater their density is allowed. But in this case it is necessary to provide high-quality aeration.

You should not expect that in an aquarium where the Comet Goldfish lives with its comrades, order will be maintained. Despite the immobility, Comets are very fond of digging in the ground (like all other representatives of the Karas). Therefore, in the aquarium there should be coarse sand or pebbles without sharp particles with a layer of 5-6 cm. For the same reason, too whimsical plants should not be planted, which will be eaten or dug in the shortest possible time. Plants with a strong root system and hard leaves, for example, valisneria, nugget or elodea, turn out to be the most enduring.

This variety of Goldfish is completely unpretentious and in the choice of food. They are happy to eat any kind of live and vegetable food. However, such promiscuousness in food often leads to their obesity. If the red fish "swollen" on the sides or abdomen, then once a week for it you should arrange a fasting day, in a running form - and put it on a starvation diet for a few days. To prevent obesity, fish should be given daily only 3% of the feed in relation to their body weight.

Also, the Comet fish needs bright light. It allows you to emphasize and enhance its beautiful color.
It is possible to determine that the conditions of keeping fish are unsuitable, according to the following criteria:

  1. The fins or tail are stratified - excessive density of fish population.
  2. Fins or the whole body turned black - inappropriate composition of water.

Normal maintenance of a comet in an aquarium is impossible without a heater and a powerful filter. Living conditions have a great influence on the appearance of the fish, as well as their ability to breed.

Breeding

Comets are ready for breeding, usually at 2 years of age. Spawning usually occurs in the first spring months. Set readiness for reproduction can be on the following grounds:

  • in males: warts on the gill covers, on the front pair of fins - notches;
  • in females, the belly becomes dense, tightly stuffed with caviar.

The Comet Fish breeds best in the equipped spawning ground:

  1. The volume of the aquarium - 25-30 liters of soft fresh water.
  2. The temperature is higher than the standard by 5-8 degrees, that is, about 25-30 degrees.
  3. The aquarium must be filled with sandy soil and small-leaved plants, and a protective net is installed at the bottom in order to protect the eggs from eating.

Before spawning, males are best separated from females for several weeks. At this time, their diet should be as nutritious and varied as possible. Before breeding, you can arrange a fasting day.

Spawning Males chase females throughout the aquarium, so the eggs are placed throughout the spawning area. One female lays about 10,000 eggs. Warm aquarium water contributes to the rapid removal of fry - they appear already on the second or fifth day. Their development occurs without adult individuals, which should immediately be removed from spawning. At first it is better to feed the fry with live dust, and a little later with rotifers and artemia.

Comet aquarium fish - breeding or breeding

Fish are ready for breeding from the age of two. Around March-April, you will notice the characteristic behavior of males. They constantly pursue females and at the same time keep as close as possible to the egg deposit.

If you increase the temperature in the aquarium a couple of degrees, then it will go faster. For two weeks we divide the male and the female and feed them as nourishingly and diversely as possible, and go on a hunger strike just before the spawning. Spawning should be about 100 liters, water poured there soft settled.

When breeding a cometfish, be sure to lay a protective net for caviar on the bottom. The period of caviar development is four days, and after five days the fry begin to emerge. Feed the fry should be living dust. With decent care, very soon the young will grow up and it will be possible to switch to rotifers or artemia. As a neighbor, goldfish will do; small species are better not to be moved.

Feeding any aquarium fish

must be correct: balanced, diverse. This fundamental rule is the key to successful keeping of any fish, be it guppies or astronotuses. Article "How and how much to feed aquarium fish" talks in detail about this, it outlines the basic principles of the diet and feeding regime of fish.
