Pond fish food

Pond fish foodYou know that your fish may sometimes need pond fish food, but do you know everything you need to know about fish food? Here are some tips:

  • Do not overfeed - do not give your fish more food than they can eat in just a few minutes. Extra food will decay and can lead to problems with algae, etc.
  • Excess food - scrape away excess food.
  • Read the label - make sure that you know exactly what you are getting and why.
  • Temperature - only feed your fish when the temperature of the water is consistently above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. When the temperature is cooler, fish do not digest food well.
  • Feed, or not to feed - if your pond is totally balanced, your fish will not need to eat specialized pond fish food. Instead, they will eat algae, pests, plant material, etc. However, it can be fun (and sometimes necessary if not enough natural food is available) to feed them every once in a while. Supplement their diet with pond fish food.
  • Timing - feed your fish at the same time every day, and they will come to expect it. It can be fun to watch them get excited, almost as a dog would.
  • Pre-winter - by making sure your fish have enough protein over the summer, you can help better prepare them for the winter.

When you want to maintain a healthy eco-system in your fish pond, Pond Depot can provide excellent pond fish food for your fish pond.

Not too much and not too little is the key - just like in the fairytale of the Three Bears. Of course, you do not want your fish to starve; however, putting food in the pond that your fish do not eat will disrupt the chemical balance of the water. In other words, it gets icky and gross.
