Fish reproduction influenced by feed

Fish bred in captivity are quite capable of reproduction. We distinguish two processes of reproduction. One concerns oviparous fish with the laying of eggs and the other for ovoviviparous fish which consists in the incubation of eggs in the mother’s pouch.

To succeed in reproducing fish, their feeling of security is to be privileged. Indeed, they must feel comfortable in a hiding place where they can watch over their eggs.
For a good offspring, fish must be in excellent health. To act on this factor, the food is important. The parents need about 15 days with the use of excellent quality food, live or frozen. In some species, such as Danios, it may be a good idea to separate the males from the females, and only bring them together for spawning.

Once the spawning is done, an adult fish lacking food can adopt a destructive behavior towards its babies if the living environment is not entirely favorable to their development. There are nutritional formulas specially dedicated to improve the reproductive performance of fish.

Growing Micro contains a high percentage of hydrolyzed soluble marine proteins, polyunsaturated fatty acids and algae.
Favour a stable feed with physical characteristics adapted to all stages of growth, from juvenile to adult fish.
The advantage of this formula is the enrichment in astaxanthin which helps to boost the colors and the immune system of the fish.
