Pond Fish Food
Keeping healthy fish in your pond is relatively straightforward, if you pay attention to proper nutrition and water quality. In a natural setting, pond fish have a varied diet, based upon the season. The seasons are determined by temperature, and so is the type of food your fish should receive.
Pond fish are most active during the summer months when the temperature is over 70°. It is at this time that you should feed the largest volume and highest protein pond foods. Spring and Autumn call for lighter feeding with a lower protein diet.
As the temperature begins to fall to 60°, their metabolism is slowing and their immune system is not as sharp. You might want to switch to an easier-to-digest formula with lower protein or a wheat germ formula. During the winter (below 45° F), it is not necessary - in fact not advisable - to feed the fish at all. Read More >>>
