Well its May 11th and I live in northwest NJ. We got off to a cool spring start but now the weather on average everyday is between 60-70 degrees and some days in the 80's. When the water reached 50 degrees about a month ago I began feeding them the Blackwater Cold Water food. I am wondering when I should stop the cool water food and begin with the summer food? Advice will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance

You should be feeding a wheat germ based food at the moment , we use one that also has garlic in it to help protect against parasites .
We normally feed them this till summer propper i;e June July when we switch to a higher protien food as well as natural foods .
Start changing back to wheatgerm again from late August mid September quiting totally as soon as the water temperature hits 10c
