Growing Betta Fry
How to Maintain Growing Tank
To power-grow betta fry, you need to provide a proper environment for them. Here are the tips for water care and maintenance👇
Step #1 Refill treated/aged water
Refill the tank with treated/aged water to about half of the tank's height.
Water quality and temperature are crucial elements to successfully raising fry and stimulating fast growth.
Make sure to use only treated/aged water and correct the water temperature.
Step #2: Add blue salt
Add 5 small spoons of blue salt for big tank.
Blue salt helps to make the water suitable for fry to adapt to the environment. It also protects the fry from infection.
1 pinch of salt for every 1 litre of water, just enough to make the water blue.
Step #3: Add methylene blue liquid
Add 2 squirts of methylene blue liquid.
It is effective against skin and gill flukes, white spot, ick, velvet, fungus, parasites, and bacterial infections.
For prevention: 1 drop per 4 litres water
For treatment: 2 drops per 8 litres water
Step #4: Add AOG general tonic
Add 2 squirts of AOG general tonic.
It is used for daily treatment, velvet, white spot, fin rot, fungus, and prevention of internal disease.
For regular usage: 1 drop per litre water
For treatment: 3 drops per 2 litre water
Step #5: Add dried Ketapang leaves
Add a few dried Ketapang leaves on the last step.
It helps to stabilize the water PH, provide natural environment, and contains anti-bacterial properties.
Replace with new leaf every time you change the water.
