Shubunkins are very popular with fishermen because their appearance attracts attention to the aquarium. In fact, they are considered property in the aquarium.
Although they are not among the most expensive species in goldfish fishing, you can make a lot of money if you grow them well. Many people try to focus on breeding a koifisks as they are the most sellable and expensive fish varieties. But since their supply goes up, the prize has a tendency to stabilize. On the other hand, fewer people are introducing Shubunkins. Then the demand is stable. If you can successfully introduce them, you can make good money. Shubunkins can also be exported to the UK, and that is the case throughout Europe because there is usually a lack of that area.
The perfect method of cultivating Shubunkins
You need 3 ponds to succeed. If it is difficult to get 3 ponds, you should have at least two. You need natural male and female shubunkins and they should preferably be the same size because it will encourage you to sprout.
First, you should offer one big main pond with natural plantation and a good shelter. All your shubunkin should be stored in that pond. You should monitor them very well as women become pregnant. You can figure it out by looking at the stomach that becomes big at the bottom. These women will also look better. They will start to put eggs soon but you should take out before they do. You should divide them into another tank.
In this tank you should introduce male fish of the same size. This fish will fertilize the eggs by releasing slim materials on the eggs. This material is white in color. You should provide good plants in this store so it's convenient for both men and women Shubunkins to do their job. The women usually choose to lay eggs at the bottom of the plant, and men decided to stay in that area during the hatching process.
When you see the eggs are fertilized, you should remove the male and female Shubunkins from the tank and put them back to the main body. Now you should wait for the eggs to be eaten so that the toddlers get out.
During this period, the diet of Shubunkin is important for both men and women. You should provide a balanced diet and adequate sunlight.
If you are able to control the third pond, you can change the children to that pond. They should stay there until they grow quite big. It will also prevent other fish from attacking them. Effective breeding can take place in April and July.
When you have children in another pond, you have the second pond empty for more spawning.
If you are not able to buy three ponds then you have to change the process a little. In that case, you should allow Shubunkins to lay eggs in the main pond, and fertilization should also take place there. You should provide adequate planting and shelter in this pond so that the male fish will not try to eat the eggs. You can also buy a crop of strips from pet stores and introduce them to this pond. The fish will tend to breed and you can easily take them out and put them in the second pond.
When the eggs are broken out, the children will come out in this pond. You can keep them here for some time and when they grow up, you can replace them in the main pond.
Shubunkins breeding is not a very difficult process, but with systematic and timely actions you can do successfully.
