Feeding Your Fish In Winter
Blog post written by Gary | 15 October 2015 | Category: Pond fish
Just a quick reminder about feeding your pond fish in the coming winter months.
As the water temperature is now decreasing, your fish will not be eating as much food as they have in the summer months. To help the fish digest the food at this time of the year it would be best to change to a wheatgerm-based food which, as the name suggests, is fibre-rich. This helps build up and maintain energy reserves through the winter months.
A wheatgerm food is ideal for when the pond temperatures fall below 10c and can be fed to the fish down to temperatures of 4c.
Although the wheatgerm fish food is a winter food it can also be fed as a supplement to the summer foods as a treat.
