Specifications

Overview

The Sarasa Comet is a graceful alternative to standard pond fish. It has a brilliant red body contrasted with soft white patches and a single-tail.

Though it may resemble ornamental carp, the Sarasa Comet lacks the barbels in the mouth area, the markings at the base of the scales, and the size. The Sarasa Comet adds unique beauty to any large backyard water garden oasis.

The Sarasa Comet is originally from China and over the years it has been distributed worldwide. The ideal setup for the hardy Sarasa Comet is a pond of at least 500 litres with a gravel substrate, rocks, and cold-hardy plants.

The Sarasa Comet will tend to grow in proportion to its surroundings. It likes to eat the roots of plants and will dig to get to them, so provide large rocks around the base of the plants to protect the plants.

Adequate filtration should be provided in order to maintain proper water conditions. The male can be differentiated from the female by the concave anal section and, sometimes, breeding spots on the head.

Spawning may result in as many as 1,000 eggs and the fry emerge in about six days. Feed the fry small live foods, and their colour will emerge in about eight months.

Feed the Sarasa Comet a quality pellet or flake food that does not exceed 30% protein.
