What is coldwater fish food?
Although goldfish are often the first fish that come to mind for unheated aquaria, there is a surprisingly large selection of coldwater fish food that is suitable for species such as Lionhead, Oranda, Ryukin, and others. Coldwater fish food is food made from flakes, pellets and granules that all help to keep your fish happy and healthy which in turn enhances their colours.
Why might I buy coldwater fish food?
Coldwater fish food is vitamin-rich, enhances goldfish's natural colours, and is highly digestible, resulting in low waste levels. A biologically balanced diet ensures fish remain healthy and active so incorporating key nutritional ingredients, a blend of algae and minerals allows your fish to maintain good health.
What are the main types of coldwater fish food?
Different fish have different needs, surface feeders for example some will prefer flakes and floating pellets while mid-water feeders like granules or slow sinking foods. Bottom feeders such as Catfish will prefer food that sinks, so that they can pick it up from the gravel. Remember that any food left uneaten at the bottom of the aquarium can pollute your tank, so avoid overfeeding and try to remove any leftover food.
What accessories will I need?
Don't forget that overfeeding your fish can lead to a variety of health issues; a small amount twice a day should suffice. Using a gravel cleaner to remove waste and leftover food from the substrate can be beneficial.
