Hi. I would suggest switching to fall/spring diet when the water temperature starts to go down to the low 60’s. Below 50-55 degree range I would stop feeding altogether. Also I would recommend to reduce the frequency of feeding also as temps go down so if you are feeding them two to three times a day in the summer then in the fall go down to once a day. If you feed them once a day in the summer then go down to every other day or just a few times a week. They need a lot less food as the water gets colder. Once you take them off food with protein they are not growing so much as storing fat to help them get through the winter.what water temperature indicates when to switch to a winter low protein food? It is getting cold here in northern Alabama.
