Tips for Successful Carp Spawning

Although fairly easy, the process of spawning goldfish can still fail if it is not done with good preparation. Here are some tips for successful goldfish spawning.

Nursery containers

Spawning can be done in ponds, both indoor and outdoor pools. Spawning containers should be in the form of an earthen pond or a wall pond. This is because the mother carp is more attracted to the atmosphere of the smell of ampo or dry soil that is splashed by the air. You need to prepare kakaban in the pond as a place to attach fish eggs.

Pond containers are more cost-effective, but tend to produce fewer eggs and larvae. You can also consider using hapa.

The capital required is greater, but more eggs and larvae are produced. Hapa is a small-edged nylon net.

Spawning can be done in small ponds measuring 2 m × 3 m or 2 m × 4 m with a minimum air depth of 1 m.

While the egg hatching container can be in the form of soil or pond walls, ponds that are insulated or installed with hapa, fiberglass tubs, or plastic.

Separated parents

Parent females and males to be bred must be separated before the spawning process to prevent premature spawning. This is because the initial spawning results tend to be less than optimal.

Don't marry with one offspring

Before mating goldfish, you should make sure the mother and female are not the same breed. Therefore, the marriage of one offspring can trigger the next generation and the quality of the seeds obtained is lower.


Parent that will spawn is given pellet feed containing 28-30 percent protein as much as 2-3 percent of fish weight. The frequency of feeding fish is three times a day.
