REPRODUCTION

In the world's temperate regions, the reproduction of fish generally depends on the season: in other words, it is determined by the temperature. There is only one high season, during which a species usually reproduces only once. In a tropical setting, where variations in temperature are less important, other factors influence on reproduction, especially rain. Fish can lay eggs several times a year, at intervals of sometimes less than a month.

THE KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL REPRODUCTION

  • Have well-fed and healthy parents.
  • Provide them with the best possible environment:
    • a rearing tank;
    • high-quality water, with characteristics as close as possible to their native setting.
  • Anticipate how you are going to feed the fry.
