With air and water temperatures dropping in most parts of the
country, now is the time to greatly reduce the amount of food you
are feeding your fish.
When your water temperature starts falling below
65 degrees, you should consider switching your fish food to a more
digestible wheat germ food. At lower temperatures, the good
bacteria in your fish's digestive tract become less active, and
have harder time digesting their normal high-protein diet.
In colder water temperatures, below say 50 - 55
degrees, then you should stop feeding your fish altogether. Even
though they may eat, and seem hungry, you can actually harm them
by feeding them their regular diet.
In some cases, undigested food can cause health
problems in fish and trouble with their digestive tract. So don't
feel bad that they are going hungry! Pond fish and KOI can be like
little underwater pigs with fins - they will continue to eat
because they dont know any better...
