Spring is upon us! This indicates many things including pond maintenance, plant care, etc. However many people forget about their fish!! Many people think that they should just feed their fish when the ice defrosts and when they can actually see their fish. This ideology is INCORRECT! You should only begin feeding your fish when the water temperature has been consistently over 55 degrees for more than 1 week. You should only feed your fish what they can consume in 5 minutes and only once a day, for at least the first couple of weeks until they become acclimated to eating again. It is a good idea to start off with a medicated koi food such as Medi-Koi which is one of the products carried in our store. Medicated koi food is a good idea because it promotes proper immune health for the koi.
So, remember: ONLY feed your fish when the water temperature has been above 55 degrees, only once a day, and only as much food that they can consume within 5 minutes!
