Paper Title
Effect of Photoperiod(one month light and one month dark) on Breeding Performance of Live Bearer Ornamental Fishes
The present study was conducted to find out breeding performance of live bearer ornamental fishes such as molly(P .sphenops),guppy(P .reticulata),platy (X . maculatus)and swordtail(X . helleri) using photoperiod [one month(L) and one month(D)]alternately for a period of three months. During this period ,effect of photoperiod obse-rved on brooder,in which one month (L) and one month (D) phases were maintained alternately in four different glass aquaria setups named as SI to SIV , in which molly, guppy, platy and swordtail were kept in ratio of one male and two females respectively to observed their breeding performances such as number of youngones, survival rate percent, mor-tality rate percent and body colour change. Similarly for next three months, same photoperiod phases were maintained in four different glass aquaria setups named as SA to SD to observed effect of photoperiod on growth performance of youngones such as average mean length ,average mean weight, specific growth rate percent, percent weight gain percent and colour change. A proper water quality management were done throughout study period and physiochemical parameters such as temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrite, nitrate , ammonium, phosphate and total hardness were observed and maintained using standard water analysis kits . Feed management were done twice in a day using dried pelleted and dried live frozen feed. Chemical analysis were done after seven days of partial water change to disinfect brooder and their youngones using chemicals such as “Rid-All-Copper Aid”, “Rid-All-General Aid” and methylene blue. The aim of present study was to found out whether this type of photoperiod phases were playing any role in successful breeding or not ,whether helpful in providing healthy crops or not, also whether it going to boost our national income and progress or not. From economic point of view , this type of photoperiod phases should not be applied for breeding of these fishes as from study it was quiet cleared that their beautiful colour appearance seems to be lost due to change in body colour ,which in turn not imparting any benefit to entrepreneurs and women self help group, inorder to have a successful living condition and hence overall hampering national income and progress.
