TIP # 13
When should you stop feeding your fish?
Keep and eye on water temperature.
As the water temperature drops, we should be feeding our fish less.
Their metabolism slows as well their ability to digest food. Once the water temperature drops consistently below 60 degrees you should feed only two or three times a week.
At these lower temperatures, it will take 2 to 3 days for them to digest food. Feeding a cold weather wheat germ formula during this period improves digestion. We carry a number of excellent
food choices for this time of year including Pond Care’s Spring & Autumn Formula and Microbe-Lift’s Cold Weather Food. During the summer your fish have been building up fat reserves to help them
through the cold winter months. When the water temperature drops consistently below 50 degrees, you should stop feeding all together until spring when the water temperature remains above
