Goldfish Spawning

Goldfish Spawning

Goldfish is a fish originating from China.

Goldfish is a type of freshwater fish that is omnivorous. This fish can live and grow well at a temperature of 24-28 C, pH 7 - 7.5 and 12 dH water hardness level.

Goldfish quite a lot of types due to cross-breeding of various colors and body shapes. But there are only two large groups namely Goldfish which have two tail fins and Goldfish which have one tail fin.

Goldfish broodstock to be breeded must be more than five months old. Male parent is characterized by a slimmer body while the female Goldfish parent is fatter body.

before breeding between male and female Goldfish should be kept in separate ponds. Goldfish broodstock that are kept separately should be kept in ponds with a low density, which is about 20 brood fish in 1 M2.

feed given to goldfish brooders in the form of dried feed or blood worms.

after the Goldfish brood is ready for spawning, the broodfish are kept together.

female fish when it will spawn can be marked with a fat belly. and for male fish, when they are ready to spawn, their stomachs will release milky white liquid when pressed.

Goldfish spawning can be done in ponds or tubs of fiber.

Goldfish spawning will run well if the ratio of males and females is equal to 2: 1. The water in the pool water is 15-20 cm.

into a spawning container can be given a water hyacinth plant. Spawning usually occurs at night or early morning.

the number of Goldfish eggs is very large, each female parent can produce 3,000-5,000 eggs.

Goldfish eggs that are in the water hyacinth root can be moved in a hatchery container. it could also be that the eggs are not separated but the parents are separated.

Goldfish eggs will hatch after 3 days.

if the fish is a week old, then the fish can be given food in the form of artemia egg drops.

after two or three days Goldfish larvae can be given food in the form of filter fish lice. If the larvae are large and around 2 weeks old Goldfish larvae can be fed blood worms.

the pond used for raising Goldfish should be rather wide at around 1.5 m x 1.5 m. minimum water height of 25 cm and a density of around 30-40 individuals / m2. Goldfish can be harvested after 3-4 months of age or about 5 cm in size.

A carp pond thrives better in an area within 150 and 600 m above the sea level.
