Culturing Infusoria In Your Aquarium Water Is Easy, Cheap, And Can Be Beneficial To Your Fish: The Sprucepets

(max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GettyImages-117545335-5c1ea8f646e0fb0001c78f05. jpg) Infusoria is a term used by many within the aquarium community to refer to many small organisms in the water that tiny fish can feed on. Infusoric is particularly critical for anyone trying to breed fish.

Many newly hatched fish subsist entirely on microscopic infusoria. Infusesoria live in a watery environment and can be found everywhere. Purified water purchased in bottles at the store is relatively free of such organisms. Outdoor bodies of water are teeming with many types of microscopic organisms. Even puddles of water by the roadside are full of infusoric. Water tigers are the larvae of the diving beetle. They are particularly prolific. Even bugs considered beneficial, such as the water boatman, can be dangerous to the small fish. The list of undesirables is endless. Culturing infusora is relatively easy and cheap. Simply remove a portion of the cloudy water, taking care to avoid swallowing up pieces of the decaying nutrient material. Tiny fry requires frequent feedings of infusesoria until they grow large enough for other foods. . . .
