Very pretty fish!
Are you suggesting catching the small fish so that it has a chance to eat? I'd just leave it be. They'll all figure it out. Maybe throw a few pellets away from the bigger fish while they're distracted, but otherwise I'd let them sort it out. We've had all sizes in our pond at the same time and no one has gone hungry for long. If you have an established pond, the fish can find plenty to nibble on in the meantime.
Just one opinion!
sort of like addy said, I first throw in the large pellets and wait until all the big fish have their mouths full, then throw in smaller pellets so the little fish get a chance. THEN I throw in more larger ones so the turtles don't go hungry as they get spun around by all the frenzy of the initial rush!
Got yourself some nice new fish! Kikusui, tancho gin rin kohaku (or is that a tancho gin rin hariwake?), and a butterfly kujaku, yes?
Very pretty fish! I’m curious where you get your Koi from?Gotta stop buying tiny ones, they're always even smaller & so very shy.
It's not eating, as there is nothing after the other two get to it, so I'll have to catch it and keep it netted up.
Other two are eating and rushing over to beg all the time.
