When you get a fish in your aquarium, you have to take good care of it to maintain its good health and hygiene. A well-maintained fish can also have a longer life span and stay with you for a longer time. Convict cichlids and Salvini cichlid are very popular among the people who are fond of keeping fish in their homes.
Breeding convict cichlids
When you are breeding Convict Cichlids, you are supposed to purchase a group of at least six or more fishes. This method will ensure that there will be a chance of having one male and female pair of fish. The male fishes are supposed to be longer than the female salvini cichlid max size. These fishes will also have a bump on the head after they mature.
The thing that you must take care of is that the fishes should feel comfortable in the home. This is because an uncomfortable fish will not spawn. The owners must make sure to leave the Convicts alone most of the time because they will feel more comfortable. You should also not put your hand in their tank or put your face on the glass very often. You must always try to feed the fish foods that are high in protein. You should get the best fish food on the market.
It can be important to increase the temperature of the water if the fishes are not spawning. You can raise the temperature by two to three degrees. This temperature increase will also simulate the organic changing of the temperature and help the fish spawn. You must feed the fish heavily if it is not spawning properly. You can give the fish blood worms and shrimp three times a day.
