Breeding Thai Oranda’s
Thai Oranda breeding requires careful selection of breeding pairs, optimal water conditions, and a nutritious diet with lot of plants in the aquarium tank to create a natural environment. The fish should be mature enough to breed and must be fed a couple of time more than usual. You also place a spawning mop in the tank for the eggs to land on. Having spawning mops and plants gives security and confidence of not losing their eggs. The breeding season for the goldfish is in the late spring and early summer. There should be a gradual increase of water temperatures say from 25 degree centigrade to 28 degrees over a 10-to-15-day period. This is to mimic an early summer for the goldfish. The breeding process involves the male chasing the female, and the eggs being laid and fertilized in the process. After spawning you need to remove the parent as the goldfish love eating their own eggs. The eggs will start hatching in 48-72 hours. The fry would take some days to swim and the fry should be fed with high-quality food. Regular water changes and maintenance are crucial for the survival and growth of the fry.
