Fish Food And Accessories

Many, many people only buy one kind of fish food and feed that to their fish all year round. Pond fish extract different nutrients from their food at a different temperatures. Feeding the wheatgerm foods in the early spring and autumn, then staple an growth during the summer can be the best option for both your fish and your pocket.




Feeding Your Fish
Many, many people only buy one kind of fish food and feed that to their fish all year round. However, this is not necessarily the best option for the fish or your pocket. Pond fish extract different nutrients from their food at a different temperature.
In the case of protein the uptake of this nutrient is limited during the cooler months and much higher during the hot summer temperatures. Foods have now been developed with this in mind and Wheatgerm foods which are low in protein but more easily digested, have been developed for Autumn, Winter and Spring feeding; whilst growth foods, which are high in protein are available for summer months. Below is a rough guide of what to feed and when.

How much to feed your fish
You should only feed your fish enough food to allow them to feed for five minutes. Any more will be wasted and end up as waste in the pond. If a fish is fed until it is full, 30% of fish food will come straight out as waste. The five minute feed can be given four or five times a day, at regular times during the day.
