Betta Keep Them Healthy: The Preference of Betta Fish in Regards to Their Food and Overall Nutrition Julian Olivo and Anaiah Santiago Antilles High School Abstract The purpose of this study is to find ingredients that betta fish like and make a fish food that bettas prefer over regular food with these ingredients. The research done in preparation of the study answers the research questions: what is needed to be done in the feeding of the fish, what are ingredients that betta fish can be fed, and what are the basics of proper betta fish care? This paper will cover the results of the experiment and the basics of proper betta fish care. Keywords: ingredients, betta fish, proper care Betta Keep Them Healthy: The Preference of Betta Fish in Regards to Their Food and Overall Nutrition Millions of betta fish owners throughout the world take care of their fish as if they were
The pros being: probiotics modify the microbial population of the harmful and harmless microbes, help with digestion and absorption of nutrients. They help in the growth and intestinal cells, improve gastrointestinal issues such as constipation, diarrhoea, and bloating. They can lower hypertension, prevent colon cancer, and they can also reduce periodontal diseases. The cons are: probiotics can cause a boat load of issues if they are not balanced in the system, issues like overgrowth of bacteria or yeast in the gut, which can cause bloating. They can contribute to the indications of rheumatoid arthritis and thrush (yeast infection).
Where natural selection occurs when a portion of the population dies off due to the ampicillin, while the rest of the population manage to survive when carrying a resistant gene. As the continuation of survival, the E. coli will develop an immunity against the ampicillin. Making it difficult to eliminate, while it multiplies for a new population of resistant E. coli. When the bacterium become resistant against the antibiotic, patients with the infection will take a longer time to recover to fight off the
Feeding habits and role in the food chain: Daphnia feeds mainly on unicellular algae, yeast and bacteria. Upon feeding, Daphnia uses its third pair legs to filter the water allowing the proper food size in while keeping the large particles out. Beating the water with the other sets of legs create water current that brings in additional food. The feeding habit of Daphnia explains their ecological role as their lower density and consequently less food consumption could lead to algal overgrowth along with possible decline in dissolved oxygen during night. On the other hand, the importance of Daphnia in the food chain is significant as Daphnia is preyed upon by several aquatic organisms such as tadpoles, salamanders, aquatic insects, and many of small fish species.
Some ways we can help is stop littering, volunteer in clean up groups, and bring reusable grocery bags when shopping to reduce trash. Pharmaceuticals affect the Chesapeake Bay as well. Drugs such as, painkillers, antidepressants, and hormones, are showing up in samples taken from the Bay. This can affect the reproduction of fish and plants. We can stop this problem by, not flushing or throwing away unwanted medicine and disposing of unwanted medicine at the proper hazardous waste facilities.
Rather than any single microbe evading the host defense and causing disease.17 Biofilms demonstrate characteristics that influence the clinical managing of inflammatory periodontal disease. For example, both altered patterns of microbial gene expression and the mass and composition of the extracellular matrix reduce the vulnerability of microbes to antimicrobial agents.18, 19, 20 Bacteria growing in dental biofilms exhibit an improved acceptance to antimicrobial agents, including those used in mouthrinses and dentifrices.21-24 In addition, confocal microscopy of in situ established natural biofilms showed that chlorhexidine only affected the external layers. Cells in 24 and 48 hours plaque biofilms, suggesting either quenching of the agent at the biofilm surface or a lack of infiltration.25 More over, biofilms of oral bacteria are also more
The first step of the dissecting process was to place the fish on the dissecting board to prevent damage to the counter top. The first incision was made using scissors between the anal and pectoral fins. Two parallel vertical incisions were then made, followed by a horizontal cut on the dorsal side of the fish in order to remove the fillet. When making the incisions, one must be careful not to cut to deep and damage the internal organs. After the fillet has been removed, the ribs can be observed.
These fish help clean the algae that grow over the reef, lowers the algae levels to support enough oxygen for coral to grow, and to establish efficient space for baby coral. There are three main ideas of how we as a community and as a nation can attempt to eliminate lionfish: spread
For examples, we need some bacteria in our gut to assist with digestion. Therefore he said, a microbe can cause a disease only when the body is susceptible to it. Strengthening the vital force Health is the balanced state of body, mind and spirit. Normal health and the harmonious vital force depends on a healthy lifestyle and the absence of a
Catch and Release is simply what its title states. A fish is caught and then released. There are specific reasons and ways to accomplish this task. Why should Catch and Release occur? Catch and Release is a method that helps to preserve fish life cycles, because the fish are still able to carry out their lifecycles when returned to the water (“Catch and Release Fishing”).
