Friends welcome to our post. Today in this post we will talk about biofloc fish food. If you want to cultivate fish in Biofloc system, you have to feed high quality food. If you feed high quality food, then fish will grow very fast. But friends, not all fish eat all food. And according to the size of the fish has to be fed differently.

If you wish, you can make high-quality food at home. Today I will talk about the best food from the beginning to end. Friends, the price of these foods is very low. So friends let’s get started.

Friends, if you want to cultivate catfish, then you have to feed powder food, and for the other fish, you have to feed floating feed from the beginning. When the fish grows up, it eats all types of food.

These foods are usually floating. As a result of floating, the fish can eat very easily. These foods become soft when they are in the water for a while, which makes it easier to eat for fish. Some fish eat plankton and grasses. Feeding grass and plankton will reduce the cost of feed.

Feeding Time

Usually, it is better to feed the fish twice a day. This speeds up the growth of the fish and keeps the fish fresh. If you farm catfish, it is best to feed them in the morning and at night. And if you cultivate other species of fish, you need to feed them in the morning and in the afternoon. After 2 to 3 months you have to feed them 3 times a day. It is also important to note whether the fish is eating.

Starter food For Fish

If you farm catfish, you will need to feed powdered food first. When the size of the fish is 2-3 cm, they cannot eat big food so they have to give powdered food. The fish grow fast by eating these and fish love to eat it. Besides, if you are cultivating other types of fish, you will need to provide 0.9 mm to 1.2 mm floating food at the beginning. For fish seeds, you can feed them egg yolk.

Intermediate Fish Food

When it is a little bigger, they should be given some protein food. At this time the fish eat a lot of food. So at this time, you have to give 3 mm to 4 mm size floating food. Not all fish are the same size. If catfish is cultivated then 3 mm feed and 4 mm feed for carp. Floating or sinking food can also be given during this time. Not all are at the same level of water, so two types of food can be given.

Last Time Fish Food

When the fish becomes marketable or large, they need to be fed 5 mm to 6 mm in size. During this time the amount of food should be increased. During this time food can be given 3 times a day and 1 time at night. There are many types of food in the market. Some are more or less expensive. During this time you can also eat less expensive food. During this time, They can be given other foods along with the purchased food.

Others Food

At Biofloc Fish Farming, you can give other foods like plankton, grass, etc. To grow plankton in the water, before releasing the fish, 100 grams of urea, phosphate, potash should be kept in 1000 liters of water. This will cause various types of plankton to grow in the water. This time the color of the water will turn green. It would be better to release the fish after 1 week of fertilizer application. It is better to purify the water with lime before applying fertilizer. This kills the harmful bacteria in the water. And fish disease rules become low.

Floating grasses like algae, Azolla, etc. can also be provided for carp fish. Carp fish like to eat these grasses. They also increase the level of oxygen in the water. These grasses are found almost everywhere. These grasses are also available for purchase. One of the advantages of this is that you don’t have to buy much food.
