Provide Koi and Gold Fish with the nutrition they need to thrive.
Treat Your Fish Well
The type of food you feed your Koi and goldfish, coupled with the quantity you offer them at each feeding, has a major impact on their health and growth. Portion control is king. Feed your Koi just enough food for a 5 minute feeding session. Choose a size that is small enough to be eaten by the smallest fish in the pond, otherwise they may die of starvation. Koi will eat almost anything; avoid feeding them with foods that deliver bulk but are lacking in nutrition.
Buy in Bulk and Save
Many Koi and goldfish keepers purchase larger quantities of food, break the bulk into 3-6 month portions, and freeze what they do not intend to use right away. There are a couple of advantages when you do this. Beyond the savings of buying in bulk, you will have a 'ready reserve' of food for your fish. Reorder when you open the last 3-6 month portion and you can save money by shopping wisely; avoid panic shopping when you run low on fish food.
