Fish Name: Crucian Carp

Latin Name: Carassius carassius

Maximum Size: 40cm

Preferred Water Conditions: Will acclimatize to a wide range of conditions. pH: 6.5-8.0

Temperature: Cold water-temperate between 2-20 deg C (34-72 deg F)

Care: Crucian Carp are native to the UK and parts of Europe, a shy fish very genetically similar to Common and Mirror carp. They can in fact interbreed with carp making a hybrid often referred to in fishing as an “F1”.

While they don’t grow to the same large sizes as the mirror carp they have similar feeding habits, happily feeding on surface foods as well as foraging around at the bottom for insect and plant life buried.

During summer months they tend to remain in small shoals often feeding at night in the margins, but in winter they will be found in deeper water often in very large numbers, shoals two or three hundred strong.

    Purchase these little fellers from David at DC Freshwater fish and they arrived on the corrrect delivery day healthy and lively. `very pleased. Then ordered some small Chubb, but sadly after having our facility looked at by a professional decided more fish would definitely be overstocking. Phoned to cancel the Chubb order and David was understanding and asked for the order number. The order was cancelled and a full refunded received two days later. If you want healthy fish and a professional supplier who hs integrity consider DC Freshwater Fish, as the customer service is excellent.
