We will now go over what to expect after the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen eggs have been laid. This is where the frustration starts. The first two issues that you will be confronted with how to get rid of house ants in kitchen are eating of the eggs and fry, especially by the male, and infertility. We will go over the eating of the eggs first. We will go over infertility in the next part of how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the series. One problem, and the one you must get past, with breeding angelfish is the eating of the eggs, or fry once the eggs hatch out, by the parents. The good news is that only about 30% of the spawning angelfish pairs will eat the eggs and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen another 20% will eat the fry as soon as they hatch out. This is a much lower percentage than with some other how to get rid of house ants in kitchen cichlids such as discus. While both parents will eat the eggs, the male does it more often. This is sometimes done as they spawn and there is how to get rid of house ants in kitchen very little you can do if this occurs while spawning. The female will make her egg-laying run and then the male, instead of following her with a fertilizing run, will follow her and eat the row of eggs. This behavior is most common in new pairs. Many new pairs will eat their eggs in the first how to get rid of house ants in kitchen couple of spawns and then eventually stop eating the eggs, so do not give up on them. If you get lucky and they do not eat their how to get rid of house ants in kitchen eggs when spawning, there is still a chance that they will eat them how to get rid of house ants in kitchen before they hatch. Fortunately, if you get this far, there is something you can do. You can, at this point, take the eggs out and artificially raise them or you how to get rid of house ants in kitchen can take a mesh screen (house soffit screen works very well) and fit it […]

Last article we went over spawning tank set up. This week we will go over how to get your how to get rid of house ants in kitchen angelfish to spawn. The first thing you need to understand is that you how to get rid of house ants in kitchen are not in total control. If angelfish do not want to pair off, there is nothing you can do about it. The only thing you can do is provide the right how to get rid of house ants in kitchen conditions so that it is more likely that they will how to get rid of house ants in kitchen pair off. If you have a sexed pair and they are the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen only angelfish in the tank, it is likely with about a 80% chance that they will eventually pair off if left together how to get rid of house ants in kitchen for a long period of time. To hurry our potential young lovers along, we provide conditions that are conducive for romance. We put 12 newly mature angelfish in a 55 gallon how to get rid of house ants in kitchen tank and let them acclimate to it for two weeks. We then start doing some sudden changes in the tank how to get rid of house ants in kitchen conditions to stimulate courtship. Some of the changes we make are • change the water temperature to 72 degrees for a few how to get rid of house ants in kitchen days and then bring it up to 86 degrees over how to get rid of house ants in kitchen about 12 hours and then leave it at 86 degrees how to get rid of house ants in kitchen for the remainder of a week. • let the tank get somewhat dirty, not doing the daily water changes for a few days how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and then doing a 80% water change. • feed them heavily for a few days and then stop how to get rid of house ants in kitchen feeding them for four days, followed by feeding them live food for three days. • do two 60% water changes four hours apart where the ph goes from how to get rid of house ants in kitchen 6.5 to 7.0 at the first change and then from 7.0 to 7.5 at the second change. • leave the tank dark for two full days and then how to get rid of house ants in kitchen turn the lights […]

Last week we went over how to get the breeding how to get rid of house ants in kitchen pairs. This week we will go over the tank that we how to get rid of house ants in kitchen move the pairs into for spawning. We keep our breeder pairs in 30 gallon tanks. Some breeders use 20 gallon tanks. We think the larger tanks are more beneficial to the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen breeders as they will pretty much stay in that tank how to get rid of house ants in kitchen for the rest of their lives. We use both an outside filtration and a sponge filter how to get rid of house ants in kitchen in the breeder tanks. Having extremely clean water is very important. The angelfish will breed in tanks that are a little how to get rid of house ants in kitchen dirty, but the chance the eggs will develop fungus after spawning how to get rid of house ants in kitchen is increased dramatically if the water is slightly dirty. We recommend a base temperature of 84 degrees for breeding how to get rid of house ants in kitchen angelfish. It is very important that the water not be hard. Hard water will significantly increase the chances that eggs will how to get rid of house ants in kitchen be infertile or the fry will die when they start how to get rid of house ants in kitchen becoming free swimming. Hard water will also increase the chance of deformities in how to get rid of house ants in kitchen fry. We recommend a ph of 6.5 and a TDS under 100. Lighting is important for spawning. We recommend that you set your lights on timers with how to get rid of house ants in kitchen 14 hours of light and 10 hours of dark. You should do two 40% water changes each week. We will go over how to get your breeding pairs how to get rid of house ants in kitchen of angelfish to spawn in our next article.

As we went over in the last article, we do not sex out angelfish to get our breeding how to get rid of house ants in kitchen pairs. Instead, we have found the best way is to put 12 how to get rid of house ants in kitchen slightly under breeding size angelfish (body size without fins of around 1.5 to two inches) in a 55 gallon tank and let nature take its how to get rid of house ants in kitchen course. The only purpose of this tank is to obtain pairs how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and will not be the tank that is used once how to get rid of house ants in kitchen they have paired off. Make sure you many spawning cones spread out all over how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the tank. Many breeders use slate, but we use 2 inch PCV pipes at 10 inches how to get rid of house ants in kitchen long attached to a base of 2 inch to 4 how to get rid of house ants in kitchen inch converter PCV connection. We use these for two main reasons. One, the eggs will be much more easily seen on them how to get rid of house ants in kitchen than when they are on slate. Secondly, the PCV is much more easily cleaned between spawnings and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen will not hold bacteria in it like the slate. The tank should be kept at 86 degrees. The TDS should be under 100 and the ph should how to get rid of house ants in kitchen be 6.5. The pairing tank should be kept immaculately clean with outside how to get rid of house ants in kitchen canister filtration and at least two sponge filters on the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen inside. You should do two 40% water changes each week. You then just need to be patient. You will find that over the next year you will how to get rid of house ants in kitchen likely get 3 5 angelfish breeding pairs out of the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen tank. When they spawn they will become VERY territorial and will how to get rid of house ants in kitchen keep all other fish away from where they spawn. We then separate them into their 30 gallon spawning tank how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and remove the eggs for artificial rearing. We will go over artificial rearing of angelfish in future how to get rid of house ants in kitchen articles in this series.

Sexing angelfish is difficult at any size, but can be done with less difficulty and more accuracy how to get rid of house ants in kitchen than with some other cichlids such as discus. In angelfish the male is often larger than the female, but this is not always the case as with some how to get rid of house ants in kitchen strains such as silver and black angelfish I have many how to get rid of house ants in kitchen pairs in which both sexes are huge and exactly the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen same size. Also, if you do not know the history of the fish, it could end up being one of the fish is how to get rid of house ants in kitchen just more mature that another and you could have two how to get rid of house ants in kitchen males or two females at different ages and different sizes. You can sex mature breeding size angelfish by looking at how to get rid of house ants in kitchen their breeding tubes which can be found under the belly how to get rid of house ants in kitchen of the angelfish between the pelvic fins and the anal how to get rid of house ants in kitchen fin. In the males it is smaller, more pointed and slightly angled more forward. In the females the breeding tube is called ovipositor (more generally known in both sexes as the genital papilla) and it is wider, larger, more blunt at the end and goes lightly backward. This takes some experience to sex accurately and is only how to get rid of house ants in kitchen useful in fully mature angelfish. Some males will have a bulge or hump on the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen crown of the head whereas females will have a straighter how to get rid of house ants in kitchen forehead. This is a very inaccurate way to sex angelfish and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen cannot be used reliably as there are many exceptions. Some males will have thicker lips than females. This is especially true in wild angelfish and old strains how to get rid of house ants in kitchen such as silvers. The difference is very slight, is only present with mature breeder size angelfish and cannot how to get rid of house ants in kitchen be used reliably. All of the sexing methods we have gone over only how to get rid of house ants in kitchen work well with mature angelfish and it is not possible how to get rid of house ants in kitchen to […]

1) angelfish are pretty hardy and can survive a wide range how to get rid of house ants in kitchen of water conditions. For those of you used to keeping discus, angelfish will be much easier. 2) the ideal ph around 6.5, but they will be fine in any ph from 5.8 to 8.0. 3) the ideal temperature is around 84 but they will do how to get rid of house ants in kitchen well in any temperature for 78 degrees to 90 degrees. Breeding angelfish should be kept at 88 degrees. 4) soft water is recommended. We recommend blackwater extract. 5) plants, swords especially, do nicely with angelfish. Just remember to clean the gravel frequently. Plants act as a natural filter. 6) we recommend high filtration, but angelfish are not nearly as sensitive to slightly dirty how to get rid of house ants in kitchen water conditions as are other south american cichlids such as how to get rid of house ants in kitchen discus and rams. We also highly recommend a UV sterilizer. Ideally, we recommend 1-micron filtration. 7) gouramis, plecos, rams, corydoras catfish and discus do well with angelfish. 8) their large fins make than very attractive to aggressive fish how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and fin nippers. Do not put them in with aggressive fish (most cichlids other than rams and discus) or fin nippers (such as barbs). 9) angelfish are grazers, so feed them several times a day. We recommend that angelfish be fed three times a day. If that is impossible, feed them a minimum of two times a day with how to get rid of house ants in kitchen as much as they can eat in 10 minutes. We feed our angelfish primarily beef heart flake, but supplement it with other flake foods and freeze dried how to get rid of house ants in kitchen foods such as blood worms and brine shrimp. 10) most angelfish start showing their coloration even as juveniles, but do not show their full colors until they are how to get rid of house ants in kitchen mature adults. 11) angelfish can grow to 9 inches; top to bottom, but most in aquariums will only attain […]

The siam yellow master is a recently developed pigeon blood how to get rid of house ants in kitchen derived strains. It was developed around 2004 in thailand. It started with a golden sunrise discus, which is actually a hybrid of a pigeon blood discus how to get rid of house ants in kitchen that was a mostly yellow variant and a wild caught how to get rid of house ants in kitchen golden discus. Through selective breeding, it was developed to have a much deeper yellow coloration. They have little to no red in the fins. The ones we sell today have very little to no how to get rid of house ants in kitchen peppering and when they do it is mostly temporary/transient peppering that will go away when the fish are how to get rid of house ants in kitchen not stressed. As juveniles, siam yellow masters usually do not show their full coloration how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and are a pale yellow. As they mature, the yellow coloration will slowly deepen until they are a how to get rid of house ants in kitchen very deep yellow as mature adults. Siam yellow master will usually have a perfect round body how to get rid of house ants in kitchen even as juveniles.

Pigeon blood discus were originally developed from a mutation found how to get rid of house ants in kitchen in a red turquoise discus in 1989. Kitti phanaithi, a breeder of discus since 1970 in thailand, saw a discus in a friends tank that had a how to get rid of house ants in kitchen very yellow and golden sheen in the coloration. It also had considerable black coloration in the fins and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen a little on the body. It had extremely bright yellow eyes. Kitti recognized that this was probably a naturally occurring mutation how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and purchased the discus for 3000.00 USD. He then selectively crossbred it with other red turquoise discus how to get rid of house ants in kitchen to develop the pigeon blood strain. Kitti first showed the discus to the world at the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen 1991 aquarama in singapore.

Most of the brightly colored yellow, gold, orange and light red discus are pigeon blood derived strains. As mentioned previously, some of these are the red melon, fire dragon, siam yellow master, golden sunrise. Recently, more strains of […]

The super red marlboro was one of the first pigeon how to get rid of house ants in kitchen blood derived strains. The red melon and the red marlboro look very similar. The main difference being that the red marlboro often, but not always, has some patterning in the fins. 15 years ago it would have likely had quite a how to get rid of house ants in kitchen bit of peppering, even if not stressed. The ones we sell today have very little to no how to get rid of house ants in kitchen peppering and when they do it is mostly temporary/transient peppering that will go away when the fish are how to get rid of house ants in kitchen not stressed. Super red marlboros can come in three different color options, the white faced red marlboro, the red faced red marlboro and the yellow faced red how to get rid of house ants in kitchen marlboro. As juveniles, super red marlboros often do not show their full coloration how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and usually only show the red coloration in patches across how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the body and in the fins. As they mature, these patches will fill in.

Most of the brightly colored yellow, gold, orange and light red discus are pigeon blood derived strains. As mentioned previously, some of these are the red melon, fire dragon, siam yellow master, golden sunrise. Recently, more strains of different coloration such as light blues and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen white (snow white discus are not derived from pigeon blood) have been developed. About 10 years ago, pigeon blood discus with bright red eyes were developed. At first, most of the pigeon blood derived discus still had the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen black “peppering” on most of the fins and some of the body. Over the last 20 years, since the pigeon blood was first developed, highly selective breeding has been successful in getting rid of how to get rid of house ants in kitchen most of the black peppering. With that said, many of the pigeon blood strains will show a little how to get rid of house ants in kitchen black peppering. The black peppering will increase dramatically when these discus […]
