Winter temperatures mean changes to when and what you feed your treasured Koi. The temperature must be controlled and a special diet is needed. Follow these simple steps to care for your Koi over the Winter months:
At temperatures less then 10 degrees celsius and over 5 degrees celsius
Do not feed normal pond foods. Your fish must be fed a rapidly digestable food such as Tetra, Nishikoi and Medikoi Wheatgerm
At temperatures below 5deg Celsius feeding should stop
Lower temperatures slows down digestion which means the food can rot in the stomach and cause bacterial problems for your fish
For more advice on winter feeding for your Koi or any other fish speak to an expert at SwellUK on 08456 589 599
Nishikoi Wheatgerm is a highly digestible, vegetable-based, low protein diet.
Medikoi wheat germ is a reduced protein food with garlic for protection from parasites over colder months.
These sticks contain all of the nutritients required by fish during the winter, in a format that is easy to digest.
Tetra Wheatgerm fish food is available from Swell UK at discount prices.
Monitor the pond temperature often during the Winter.
