Spring/Summer Feeding.You Are What You Eat.
Just as you would not remain healthy eating only junk food we feel that a quality well balanced fish food is a basic requirement for any pond. Stick with name brand foods as they offer the best value and selection and are manufactured with guaranteed analysis. Microbelift Legacy Pond food is again our number one seller. This food contains probiotics which make it easier for the fish to digest it and easier for the "beneficial" bacteria to remove the waste. The containers have screw-on lids for freshness and to keep out predators. We are fully stocked this year with Saki-Hikari the ultra premium food from Japan. The Grand champions from Japan are fed this food for maximum color and growth. If you really want to spoil your Koi, give them Saki-Hikari. We also carry the complete line of Blackwater Pond Food, the number one fish food in the UK, as well as Tetra Pond sticks, Sho Koi, Blue Ridge, Chengro and others. No matter what brand you prefer, start with a wheat germ food for your fish for a couple of weeks and then switch to a high protein food. Don't over feed your fish. It helps contribute to algae and water quality problems. Only feed them what they can eat in 3-5 minutes. It is better to feed them several small meals than one big one. Fish Treats are always fun for both you and your fish. Aquascape offers fish treats that our Koi here at Pondbiz can't seem to get enough of.
Fall/Winter Feeding - What you feed Koi when the temperature transitions from warm to cold can have a large impact on their health. As the weather starts to cool down you will want to get your fish ready for the cooler water temperatures. The only way to know when it is time to switch from a regular Koi food to a food that is meant for cold weather, such as a wheat germ, is by taking the water temperature with a pond thermometer. Always mix your regular Koi food with the cold weather food for a week or so when transitioning them from one season to another.
