I have to give my head a shake sometimes when I hear how much food you Koi people feed your fish. It's not that I don't understand where you are coming from, you have lots of big fish and you want them bigger, it's just that the scale of things compared to what I'm use to kind of blows my mind. A pound of food would last me a couple years, and yet I still feed my fish a 2 or 3 times a day. But mostly I feed for fun, not for growth, and of course my fish are much smaller.Sissy, I agree but in the other direction. Over feeding is dangerous, but I think a pond should be designed to allow for a larger waste load so as KOI can be fed more often. I feed sometimes up to 10 times a day. Probably a 1# of food a day during the peak of the growing season. Now this is for Koi, Not goldfish. also this should ONLY be done if there is adequate filtration to remove all that waste. With several koi, that needs to be a pretty good size and very efficient filter, and good water quality is a MUST!
I see your point. Sorry. I should have added @sissy to that part. The whole taking words out of context is a little fresh in my mind, and probably shouldn't have mentioned it. Does bug me, but a little more recently than normally.This part kind of left me wondering? lol
The point of this video imo was to make some basic points in a short period...which is what he said at the beginning along with providing references for more detailed info. If you're confused you may want to take his suggestion and research the topic further.I also feed my fish once or twice in week but after seeing this video i am confused how many times should i feed my fish in a week?
