With the cooler weather fast approaching we have had many customers ask us if it’s time to switch to Fall and Spring food (high carbohydrate food)- the answer is it all depends on your water temperature. If your water temperature is below 70 degrees Fahrenheit then yes you should begin their Fall diet. If your water temperature is above 70 we would suggest continuing a Summer food for the extra protein before the introduction of high carbohydrate foods. If you do not already have one we would suggest adding a thermometer to your pond to ensure your fish are being fed the correct food for your water temperature.
Don’t forget when your water temperature reaches 50 degrees Fahrenheit you should stop feeding your fish.
