Koi Carp Fish breeding , care and food
Breeding of koi carp is same as that of gold fish. For breeding we can select 1 year aged fishes. Its breeding ratio is 2:1 , for 2 male 1 no female .The gender identification of fish is male fishes will be slim compared to female fishes.
Spawning mops should be set in the tank for breeding. It can be made using plastic ropes. The best time for setting the fish for breeding is evening time. By morning the eggs will be sticked to the spawning mops by the fishes. In the morning shift back the parent fishes in to old tank. Remove 2/3rd of the water from the breeding tank and add fresh water as same qty removed.
After 48 hours the eggs will be hatched and fishes try to start swimming. Give artemia as food for first week .After that we can go for small pellete foods.
We can also go for induce breeding. For that we can inject a medicine called Wova _FH hormone . For a 2kg fish 1 ml need to be injected. Medicine should be kept in fridge all time. Injections should be done in the muscle below dorsal fins of the fish.
