Biological Mosquito Control

Biological Mosquito Control

Insects always prove to be delicious snacks for creatures above their station on the food chain. In many cases it is just a bigger, badder bug that ends up enjoying a mosquito meal, though there are plenty in the animal kingdom that also put mosquitoes on their menu. For insect control, try dragonflies. Dragonfly nymphs are dangerous to mosquitoes in both stages of life. They eat mosquito larvae in their nymph stage, then also feast on the adults after they themselves transform. Drop the nymphs into ponds or other bodies of water that are kept clear of weeds. - See more at: http://www.mosquitomagnet.com/blog/guide-mosquito-management-farm/#sthash.ozwn7HYe.dpuf read more ....

GETEK Solar Energy Panel Water Pump Fountain Submersible Pond Garden Pool Watering
A good alternative during brownout. I highly recommend this product for us with zero technical knowledge in installing solar panel. although it can only  pump for 180 liters per hour " Max flow quantity of pump : 180L/H". The idea is it is better to have a filtration and aeration rather than zero.

Kumonryu
excerpt from http://www.koi.com/
The Kumonryu is a Doitsu (German) koi that has a jet black pattern that emerges like billowing black clouds against a white background. The black pattern is variable and unstable, disappearing with changes in the water temperature, reappearing sometimes as a completely different pattern.

The name Kumonryu is derived from a legend that tells of a dragon (Ryu) transforming into a cloud and racing through the sky.

The Kumonryu is said to have been developed by breeding a Shusui with a Matsukawa Bakke.

Koi with eye tumor

Koi with eye tumor
A koi hobbyist message me today about her koi disease problem, this is her message.

Hello Hoping you can give me some info. I have a Koi that at one time had jumped out of the pond and I think injured his eyes flipping around on the cement . He did survive but now has tumors or some kind of growths on the eyes itself . They are red in color and lately has been getting bigger. The fish is loosing eyesight from this. Do you know or have you heard about these kind of tumors? I cant think of anything so awful then to be blind. Hoping you might know of someone that can remove them or have heard of surgery done on the eyes of koi fish.. Thank You

I advice her to removed the koi eyes since koi can still eat even if they lost their eyesight, they can sniff their food. Do you have do you have additional advice leave comment below, thanks 

How to care and breed Killifish

excerpt posted from http://fishingchat.blogspot.com/

IKillifish, being small-sized and colorful in nature, are very popular among the different types of aquarium fish. They are also easy to keep and breed in an aquarium. Most of these fish are found to have a body length that ranges between 2 to 6 centimeters, but, some species may grow up to six inches in length. There are around 1270 species of killifish that belong to different families. Among them, the family Rivulidae contains around 320 species. It is said that the name killifish is derived from the Dutch word 'kilde', which indicates the habitat of these fish - small water bodies that may disappear during summers. The eggs are laid in the substrate and hatch only when the dried water bodies are filled again during rains. The fry grow fast, due to the unpredictable nature of their habitat. These fish mate, breed and die, as the water dries up.

Different types of killifish are raised as pets an…

How often do koi breed?

How often do koi breed?
I think it depends on the temperature of the place. because base in my experience in our place which is tropical country. We can breed koi the whole year round. We just separate the female from the males and feed them lots and lots of high protein foods, specially live foods like daphnia, mosquito larvae, snails, earth worm etc.

Feeding Kois with duckweed

Image
Feeding our kois with duckweed, duckweeds have high protein content and other vitamins and minerals.

Nutritive value of duckweeds
The protein content of duckweeds is one of the highest (up to 45%, on DM basis) in the plant kingdom (Fasakin 1999) and has a better array of essential amino acids than most plant proteins and more closely resembles animal protein (Hillman and Culley 1978). Further, its amino acid spectrum especially with regard to lysine (7.5% of total protein) and methionine (2.6% of total protein) is much higher as compared to other plant feed stuffs (Rusoff et al 1980 and Mishra 2007). Duckweeds are highly variable in their composition and it depends on the nutrient status of the water on which they grow (Table 1). They grow slowly on nutrient poor waters and under such growth conditions have low protein content associated with high fiber, ash and carbohydrate content. In contrast, they grow rapidly on nutrient rich waters and have a high protein content associated wit…

How to breed koi step by step

How to breed koi step by step Breeding coy fish in the Philippines setup  This is how to identify potential males that is fertile Breeding process Choose matured breeders at least 3 years old, matured breeders have thick egg membranes and have higher survival rate and hatching rate, in addition, they have more eggs to lay. I think to correct me if I am wrong the ratio that a koi lay eggs is 100 thousand per kilo.Separate male and female breeder at least one month "Theirs a saying that absence makes love grow founder" In this method the males will have ample sperm and the female will have ample of eggs too. and when you will place them together again am sure they will really mate because they really miss each other already.Feed them high protein foods, specifically daphnia, earth worm, tubifex, snails, mosquito larvae, but you have to be caution in feeding live foods, wash the live foods properly, disinfect them, you can add peroxide to the water that your going to wash …

First culling getting rid of tobi

Image
This is my first culling getting rid of tobi's. Toby's are koi fry that grow faster than their other siblings. You must segregate them because they will eat their smaller and weaker brothers. Tobi's are strong kois and they are good choice for jumbo type, but their coloration is not as beautiful as the weaker and small kois, because kois with nice coloration grew slower than toby's because they develop their coloration first rather than growth.
