This amazing fish is a telescope
What an amazing creature - a fish-telescope! When you see it for the first time, you can not even believe that these huge bulging eyes are real. And with what dignity she moves along the aquarium, moving with an impressive veil tail. True, it is worth to throw food into the water, there is no trace of phlegmatic and calm traces: the telescope is a gluttonous fish, like most gold, it will never miss the chance to refresh itself.
A bit about the breed standards: The fish-telescope has a rounded body with an inflated front part. Its height is more than half the length, which makes this aquarium inhabitant look like a ball. The caudal fin is always directed vertically downwards, although its shape can be different: ribbon or skirt.
As for the main feature, the uniqueornaments, which have a fish-telescope-eye, then they are spherical, cylindrical or conical, but always must be symmetrical with respect to each other. The more eyes - the more beautiful the fish is, although it causes certain inconveniences. Iris is always transparent - this is a sign of the health of the fish, and therefore an indisputable plus to its beauty.
What color are these golden crucians? Not only classic black, but also orange, red or chintz color. By the way, it is not permanent and can brighten up (which is especially offensive to the black velvet variety) from non-ideal conditions of keeping and improper feed. In general, the fish-telescope is omnivorous: dry food and live, as well as herbal supplements eats instantly and with great appetite, although the best results of the exterior are, of course, manifested on live food.
Keep this form can only be carefullythoughtful and prepared aquarium. Nothing should be dangerous for tender eye blisters. Soil - only rolled stones or sand, plants - only with tender leaves. True, such plants can survive together with the main inhabitants of the reservoir for a very short time: the fish-telescope will bite them in one of the days of discharge. By the way, unloading should be arranged at least once a week, otherwise your pet is threatened with obesity of internal organs and death.
Neighbors for the telescope should choose the peace-loving,with a calm temper. They look best in the company vealehvostov and orand, besides these species have similar conditions of content and diet of feeding.

The quality of water is extremely important in terms ofthese fish. It should be filtered at a rate of not less than three volumes per hour, that is, for a 100-liter aquarium, select a filter with a capacity of 300. Periodically, as a result of contamination, it is necessary to clean the debris from the bottom with a siphon, washing the ground, otherwise, digging in it, fish can get irritated and damage eyes.
Propagating these goldfish is quite simple: pick up producers older than two years old, who in early spring start a marriage game. Do males chase females and swim near their oviduct? They acquire a special color and overgrown with small white dots on the gill covers? So, it's time for these specimens to become parents. The role of mothers is chosen by adult females with bellies full of caviar.
The spa is prepared in advance, its volume is notshould be less than 50 liters, and the water temperature is set higher than in the main aquarium by 3-5 degrees. At the bottom of the dishes lay a grid, covering it with several plants. After spawning, the fish are returned back. Fry swim in 2-5 days, after the expiration of the month, they are calibrated to size, otherwise large ones will eat small ones. Feed young in the early days of live dust (infusoria), and then Kolovratka and Artemia.
