How often do you change your fish pond water?

posted by Martinsx in Freshwater Fish

Fishes do very well in clean water than dirty water because the clean water contains a good amount of oxygen that keeps the fish healthy.

If you can change your pond water every day, it's definitely going to be a good thing for the fishes but if you can't, changing it at least 3 times in a week would be appropriate.

Depends on the set-up, I think. I change once a week but mostly because I have a good filter and a lot plants that can be affected by too many water changes. It's also difficult to get all the fishes out since they like to hide in crevices and nooks in the pond. I don't like stressing them out too much by disturbing them often.

Changing it three times a week is too much, at that point you're putting your fish at risk due to the amount of stress that comes from changing the water. Also it depends on how big of a pond set up you have. I've got a 6ft x 3ft x 3ft pond and with that, I very rarely change the water due to it functioning like a natural pond. The more natural your set-up, the less often you'll need to change the water.

What's the best catfish to breed?

posted by Martinsx in Freshwater Fish

I heard that there are so many varieties of catfish which one can choose from to breed.

I would like to know the best species that grows fast and big, which are also with high resistance against infections.

If you can get your hands on a Redtail Catfish, go for it. It’s an excellent game fish from South America, but it’s also a nice fish to have in an aquarium. It grows fast and gets really big. The red tail makes it a showy fish in aquariums. This fish is popular in South Eash Asia too especially in Thailand and Indonesia.

Good day Administrator and Everyone.

I'm Martins and it's such a wonderful feeling to be a part of this community. I'm looking forward to having a wonderful time participating in all the activities and discussions about fish that would be brought up in the forum.

I love fishes quite well and fishing is one of my favorite hobbies. To seat down and stare across the calm water waiting for a catch is so relaxing and serves as a good time for reflection.

Definitely, I'm sure that I will enjoy my time being in this community of fish lovers. Remember, a good portion of the land is covered by water which means that we have more fish than we know of in this earth. So, getting to have a community where we can learn more about fishes is very interesting.

Hi Martin! I am also new to the tropical fish world. I have been snorkeling for years and have become so intrigued by all the different kinds of fish I see each time. There are many things to learn from not only the ocean but those species that inhabit it. Even if you do not own a fish tank, it can be very interesting to gain knowledge about common and uncommon tropical fish. This community seems quite knowledgeable about fish, fish tanks, different kinds of equipment, and mixing different kinds of fish so I am sure all questions will be answered!
