Description

JBL Pro Pond Winter Food is specially formulated for Koi and other pond fish for feeding at lower winter temperatures.

This small (3mm) sinking pellet is perfect for fish approximately 15 to 35cm (6" to 14") and the lower protein content (18%) make it more easily digestible at lower winter water temperatures.

Made from the highest quality premium ingredients including salmon, fish oil, shrimp, wheat & corn and supplied in a keep fresh resealable bag.

Clearance - short date or just out of date. (This means that the manufacturer cannot guarantee the stated vitamin content beyond the best before date but all other food values remain good. great value!!).


Why feed Winter Food? - As the water temperature drops fishes metabolic rate slows down and food they eat spends longer in their system as intestinal transit is slower. High protein meat based foods are particularly hard for them to digest during these periods and can cause intestinal problems such as gut ulceration.

Wheatgerm based foods are much easier to digest with a low protein content so food goodness is delivered without causing problems to the fish, the addition of garlic provides many other health benefits and helps protect the fish from pathogens to which the fish are particularly vulnerable at lower water temperatures.

When to feed Winter food. Winter food should be used in place of any other food type you are using when the water temperature (not air temperature) reaches 10C (50f.) Continue feeding until the water temperature reaches 5C (41f). Do not feed fish below 5C (except for Sturgeon / Sterlets which can feed at even lower temperatures). A couple of sunny days mid Winter may result in the fish becoming more active and a small amount of Winter food can be given. A simple pond thermometer is really useful for monitoring the pond water temperature.
