Feeding your fish is a supplement to the natural diet they will find in the pond. This supplement is vital in ensuring your fish receive the correct balanced diet. It s best to feed your fish at about the same time each day.
Feeding with high protein foods in the summer can ensure sufficient reserves for the winter. Below is a selection of pond fish foods, automatic feeders and accessories for your pond.
The type of food you give your Koi and the quantity you offer them will vary according to their size. The majority of proprietary Koi foods have a cereal base with different ingredients added either to enhance color or aid digestion.
Choose a food size that is small enough to be eaten by the smallest fish in the pond; otherwise they may die of starvation. If you keep very small Koi with larger ones, offer a mixture of large and small foodstuffs, but always make sure that young fish are adequately fed.
Most Koi food comes in two forms: floating and sinking. Koi are bottom-feeding fish and are, therefore, better suited to sinking food. This is made by compressing the meal through a die at high pressure. The meal is held together with fats and, again, takes a long time to be dissolved by cold water. The disadvantage with relying on this type of food is that you will be deprived of seeing your Koi feeding.
