Winter Feeding

As the water temperature becomes colder the metabolic rate of a Koi and other pond fish becomes slower. With this slower metabolic rate digestion slows and the fish cannot process higher protein summer foods in their gut.

It is important for health and immunity to continue to feed the fish in colder water but the feed needs to change to a low protein Winter Wheatgerm diet.  As a general rule wheatgerm foods can be fed down to a pond water temperature of around 6°c.
