Unusual sharks.

Sharks are the oldest inhabitants of the deep sea. Their evolution, continued for centuries, led to the emergence of new, strange still shapes, sizes, colors, types. In the process of converting prehistoric beasts changed and their ability to survive, there are new, specific detachment characteristics and quality. Appeared and unexplored scientific minds unusual shark species.

You think people have studied these graceful animals bloodthirsty? Not at all. We know about sharks is extremely small. For example, the researchers only this year caught 3 completely unknown species of these fish. Dark waters kept a lot of secrets, and the sharks will never allow people to access all of their mysterious secrets.

What has influenced the formation of unusual species?

By well-known hypothesis, first primitive prehistoric fishes inhabited the fresh waters. After began a gradual migration to salt water. The old rule of “the strongest will survive” and acted in those days, and, as a rule, individuals with low intelligence (Yes, intelligence!) gradually eliminated, giving place higher animals.

As appear unusual species of sharks?

The first stone on the path of evolution toothy predators was the weather. The cooling waters of the oceans has led to what has kulynychi to rise above to the surface, and reducing the number of potential victims naturally led to the gradual transformation of their brain, including the olfactory bulbs – sharks began to feel the food over much longer distances. Accordingly modified and the methods of hunting. Continue reading

Mnogodetnaya the synodontis

At home I had a lot of aquarium fish. I’ll talk about some of them. First I had guppies. This small viviparous fish ; (males 3-4 cm female 4-6cm ). Female mostly grey, and males in all colors of the rainbow. Equal males no. They are very nicely painted. The tails have different shapes. skirt, fan, fork… I already had several litters, but not all managed to grow. I had 12 goldfish. These fish are very vulnerable to diseases and like clean water. One goldfish is bright orange with a red outgrowth on the head, like a hat. A fish called livingonlove. Goldfish are very greedy, therefore they are constantly digging in the ground and stir up the water. They pull out and eat plants, eat fry and eggs, preventing other fish. Goldfish are beautiful, but keep them difficult. Of labyrinth fish of the gourami I had. Two blue and one marble. Gourami, like all labyrinth fish, can breathe not only oxygen dissolved in the water and atmospheric air. Amie with my favorite fish – catfish. I have lived representatives of 5 families: upside-down catfishes catfishes, armored catfishes, the loricariidae. com orca and melkogalechnyj som.

Upside-down catfishes catfishes have three species: the Niassa synodontis, synodontis Poll and mnohodetnoy synodontis. It is a large fish (10-15cm.) with interesting behavior. They know how to swim, rolling over belly up. For this they are called catfish-shifters. These catfishes are sometimes fight among themselves, but mostly they behave peacefully. The synodontis can hang out at the surface belly up for quite a long time. They can stand on the tail and a long upper moustache. Moustaches are interesting. Continue reading

Breeding of carps.

The spawning carp. During unloading wintering ponds is carried out the appraisal of manufacturers. Carp producers must be without any damage. Select females with a very soft abdomen (Nestle). Males select those with soft pressure on the abdomen leaking milk. Such manufacturers take a job in the first place. As a rule, these younger producers — females 4-6 years and males of 3-5 years.

Spawning the carp in special ponds. Before planting, producers to spawn in the spawning ponds they make all necessary preparatory agroforestry work: mow and burn last year’s grass, and the ashes used as fertilizer; loosen the bottom of the pond that contributes to the development of soft meadow vegetation; if the bottom and side slopes of the spawning ponds poor vegetation, draped with turf and with branches of pine, spruce, juniper, etc.

The branches of deciduous trees do not use, as they quickly wither and rot; do not allow the emergence in spawning ponds of pests, frogs, tadpoles, which destroy the eggs and larvae of carp after spawning, reduce the food base of the pond.

Fill spawning ponds with water through the filters, making sure not to expose the eggs and larvae of weed and wild fish, as well as vreditelei ponds and other ponds. Carp spawn when the water temperature is 18-20 C. When water temperature is where the producers, reaches 15-16, start to fill spawning ponds. Filling spawning ponds produce in the morning at 6-7 h, and manufacturers are thrown to spawn in 17-19 hours of the same day. During this time the temperature of the water in the spawning pond should rise by 2-3 °C compared with the temperature of the water of the pond was maintained by the manufacturers. Continue reading
