One of the important things in raising Arowana fish (Dragon) is the process of purchasing fish. Choosing to buy fish that are of the correct beauty will bring happiness to the dragon fish owner. Always fun to raise, one Arowana fish has a very long life span of more than ten years. Until many people didn’t expect it at all. As for the oldest fish in Thailand, as far as we know, it’s more than 40 years old. It is a Super red dragon fish. It can be said that if raised well and completely. The fish will stay with us until our children and grandchildren grow up. Therefore, choosing fish to raise with us is very important.
There is a Western Karen proverb translated into Thai that says: “During that one lifetime How many Arowana fish (dragon fish) can a human raise? So choose the fish you like best.” If you are not a millionaire with a bag of money, There is an opportunity to buy dragon fish and raise a large number of dragon fish. Or you can buy carefully selected fish, which of course comes at a higher price than usual. Deciding to buy fish is therefore quite important. Please note that if you do not have experience in seeing fish or know the species sufficiently. You may be a victim of a merchant or a fellow aquarist. dishonest fish picker You can deceive and sell fish of the wrong species, even fish with defects. At this point, please be careful. The best way would be to study and gain knowledge first. When there is knowledge and understanding So that we will not fall prey to those who want to take advantage of these societies.
In the red fish species, it is not too difficult to consider. Because it focuses mainly on red scales. Look at the glimpses of color reflected in the light. The intensity of the eyes, mouth, whiskers, tail leaves, etc. As for choosing to buy in the golden fish species. Previously, anyone who wanted to go see the fish had to go early in the morning. It could be said that the sun had not even risen yet. If you want to go together, many people must go. To help each other see Leave a comment Some people have to carry a flashlight to look at the fish’s scales to see if they are beautiful. Is it shiny? Is it clear? Also, I have to hurry and see it before other people buy it in front of me. It can be said that watching fish in the past was quite fun. Years ago, most dragonfish were taken from the wild. Or the wild fish itself, which has the original beauty of his species. Rarely are there many new and diverse forms like today. It must be learned that nowadays it is not possible to use all past or old fish selection methods.
In foreign countries, dragon fish have been bred in closed farms for many decades. For Thailand itself, commercial breeding has only been seriously undertaken in the past 5-7 years, both by the public and private sectors. Raising for breeding It is different from raising for beauty. In the trade section, fish shops or farms usually raise fish in an opaque tank that is white all around, causing the fish to adjust itself to be white as well. Because it aims to make the opening of the fish scales more high. It is at this point that observation is made to see the health of the fish. Or the color of the fish scales may be difficult. Including the fact that the store uses light bulbs in the store to make the fish more beautiful and colorful. Buyers should consider the environment carefully. If you are unsure, you can ask the shop to turn off the lights to view the fish in their true light conditions.
As for one of the important things in choosing to buy, that is the breed certificate (certificate). Generally, I give 80 percent importance to the fish and 20 percent to the breed certificate (certificate). The reason is that nowadays, farms tend to Use a beautiful name for the breed in the certificate. But when you look at the real thing I almost fell over because the appearance of the fish I saw was inconsistent with many certificates. When choosing to buy a dragon fish, we mainly buy the fish itself. I didn’t buy a certificate. The breed certificate is also important. Because it can confirm the species and origin of the fish. or the chip number attached to the fish Tell details of the breeds that the farm can identify. And another thing is when there is a dispute about the breed. Will be able to confirm the true breed, not a mistake.
Another thing that I would like to write about is thoughts about buying fish. There was a question from my friends asking me which Malaysian goldfish I should buy. One Malaysian goldfish was dark in color but the top 6 rows of scales were not yet open as they should. The fine scales are open, some 70-80 percent, with another one. The scales on the 6th row on the back are starting to show some golden color. The fine scales turn all golden in color, but the color is less dark than the first one. Which he himself still can’t decide. So I’d like to hear opinions from amateurs like me on what they think. My answer made him not buy these two fish. Because I told him that the choice of fish depends on the fish and the person choosing it. If you like it right away, you probably don’t have to choose. These two are beautiful, but if your friend likes to open high across a dark back. Why not choose what you like? I didn’t buy fish today. There are many more opportunities ahead. Better take the one that got hit. That’s my reason for telling my friends.
For choosing my fish That is, it may not match all standards. Please think of it as advice from an ordinary shepherd who has learned it from other friends as well. In summary, I think the most important thing is You have to like it according to your own style. Some people like wide, thick fish. Some people like long and round styles. When choosing to buy fish, you must ask yourself first. Still not sure? It is recommended that you go see the fish often. When the time comes to buy, you will get the fish you really like. And I am proud to have chosen it myself. For the basics of my fish selection, all 5 things must be complete.
1.5 Swimming must be elegant.
For the dragon fish Swimming style is important. Dragonfish that are perfectly beautiful but are poor swimmers should be avoided. A good dragon fish’s swimming must be beautiful and graceful. Formidable like a flying dragon. Swim slowly, don’t rush. It’s called a blooming fin machine. When swimming, the pectoral fins spread almost perpendicular to the body. Sometimes the pectoral fin swims vertically with the tip pointing to the ground, looking elegant and beautiful, with an attitude of interest towards the keeper. This characteristic is a good fish that swims beautifully. Not swimming like a slithering snake. Swims quickly, twists and turns, swims at an angle, swims with fins attached to the body, looks slumped when swimming with the body part lower than the body, or swims headlong. Swimming like a racing motorcycle means swimming fast with no direction. Like this, the fish will have the habit of being easily startled. Or the type that doesn’t swim and likes to stay still at the bottom of the tank for long periods of time. This is a lonely fish. This should be noted as well.
But that said It’s not fixed. Even though some of them are all beautiful, I still don’t care. Sometimes I pay attention to strange things that have many flaws. I think the most important thing is The breeder/buyer must have knowledge and understanding of the fish, that is, know that this type is beautiful and standard. This is a flaw of the fish. This is a symptom of an abnormal fish.
When you understand When choosing fish, please choose perfect fish. Minimal flaws or disadvantages and most importantly, you must like yourself the most. (Believe yourself) When you catch the fish, you will feel proud that you picked by yourself.
