Koi will eat just about anything organic, but you should still make sure you have koi fish food with plenty of vitamins and nutrients. This is important for maintaining a shiny color and an active lifestyle. We recommend feeding your koi food when the water temperature is 42 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. If the temperature is too cold, your koi may not digest meals effectively.
Which Pond Fish Food Is Right For You
The type you buy is mostly dependant on the size of your fish. Koi fish should be fed up to four times daily, but only as much as they can eat in a few minutes since uneaten food can become unhealthy waste. When your fish are small, feed them flakes or small koi food pellets. Increase from medium to large pellets as your koi grow larger.
Other Koi Feeding Tips
Koi can actually recognize who is feeding them after a short while. As long as you continue to feed your fish, they will start to greet you as you approach the pond.
Try not to feed your koi before a storm or if the pump is not working. They require plenty of oxygen to digest their meals, which is reduced while raining or with a broken air filter. If you need a new air filter or pump, be sure to check out our large selection that ships quickly to your home.
Lastly, do not feed your fish if the water temperature is too low. Their metabolism goes into hibernation so they can survive the winter without anything.
