TIPS TO CARE FOR PET FISH

A lot of people think of fish as less of a pet and more of just a decorative element to their home, what with the fancy tanks, colourful pebbles and pretty plants to go with it. As a result, the efforts put in to care for the fish are a bare minimum and usually just restricted to feeding it every now and then, sometimes too much or too little. Unlike popular notion, fish is, in fact, a very good option to have as a pet for they are calm, beautiful to look and naturally therapeutic. Plus, you don’t have to keep ‘fishing out’ new ways to keep them entertained or taken care of like you would a dog or cat. Taking care of your pet fish is a very easy task and we have listed out a few tips to help you with this.


1: TAKE CARE TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FISH:

The first step towards fish care is to actually choose the right fish, which are categorised into tropical and freshwater. For beginners, the best option is to get freshwater fish for these adapt generally better to home aquariums with lesser health problems. They also require very little aquarium maintenance. Tropical fish on the other hand, despite being much more beautiful to look at, require saltwater aquariums and are more challenging to take care of.



2: GO FOR A SMALLER BREED:

Go for a smaller breed of fish as opposed to huge ones, for these are much more peaceful and require lesser tank space and maintenance, thus, a good option for new fish owners. Neon tetras, dwarf gourami’s etc. are all good options. Take note that fish like the tetras that like

to live in schools must be purchased at least five at a time.

3: CHOOSE THE COMPANION FISH CAREFULLY:
Like all animals, not all fish get along with each other. Quite the contrary, some can just gobble each other right up. Thus, make sure that you put some thought into what companion fish you choose for your own. Make sure to mix either aggressive fish or non-aggressive ones. If you mix both together, then the aggressive ones will definitely attack the others.


4: GET THE RIGHT TANK:

Tank size is an important factor to be taken into consideration when it comes to caring for your fish. If you have fish that will get much larger in time, or if you plan to purchase a few other fish breeds, make sure to get a tank that is big enough for them to swim around in ease. Overcrowding can cause many health problems for the fish and even lead to death. Apart from space, another reason why it’s better to get a slightly bigger tank is that the water remains stable much longer in a spacious tank, again preventing your fish from dying due to bad water quality.


5: FEED FRUGALLY:
Like every other animal, it is important to remember to feed your fish regularly and in the right portions. Don’t unknowingly push in a large number of flakes, pellets or other treats for your fish, as overfeeding can cause health issues for the fish and uneaten food bits can leave your tank dirty and foul smelling. Do some research or ask salespeople at the pet store beforehand about the right amount to be given and how much. Proper feeding very much affects how long your fish live so don’t mess it up.

Skills to Become a Master Kayak Fisherman

Pre-trip planning is over, your gear is ready, and you are going kayak fishing! There are excellent fishing tips available to inexperienced fisherman using kayak fishing, and we share them with you today.

Learn to do sight fishing

Sight fishing is where you look into the water to try and spot the fish with your eyes first. You will want to cut the glare from the water so invest in a pair of polarised glasses. The polarised glasses will let you see through as far as visibility will allow. If your kayak is full and crafted for stand-up fishing, practice standing and paddling along a bank or a swamp. There is a range of great fishing kayaks, make sure the one you purchase works well for your choice of fishing.

The art of moving silently

Fish can feel and hear any vibration that you and your vessel will make upon the water, that is why it is essential to move as quietly as possible. Make every effort not to knock your paddle or rod against the kayak or the surface of the water.

Lure changing

It is critical to making rapid sink-rate changes to cover all the depths that you encounter. It is a good tactic to have up to three different weighted jigheads rigged with appropriate tails and using Genie Clips. If a change in sink rate is mandatory, it only takes a few seconds between casts to unclip and change to the critical weight. Competent lure changing could mean the world between catching a fish and not. Practice changing lures before you go on your trip.

Learn drifting techniques

You can use your anchor, but it is better to learn how to drift with the currents. This skill is convenient to take you in the desired direction through your targets. Use your paddles to stroke on the left and on the right to keep you on track. You will discover that it will only take a few strokes to help you keep your direction. Some anglers deploy an underwater parachute to help them drift. It catches enough water to slow the momentum of the kayak preventing it from stopping altogether.

Setting the drag

It is exhilarating to fight fish and to reel in a big redfish or even a small bass. It is crucial to understand how to correctly set the drag based on the strength of your fishing line and weight of the hooked fish.

Knowing to point your tip sideways when you fish upwind is a trick that you must practice. The wind must not push on your drag line and drag the lure from its target.

These things that are shared above is only a few of the things to take in consideration when you want to master the skill of kayak fishing.
