FEEDING KOI
Keeping beautiful, healthy koi is easier when they have a well balanced diet.  Koi are unique, they are the only fish that do not have a stomach.  The food they eat goes directly into their digestive tract.  Therefore, it is important to feed them food that is easy to digest.

Water temperature has a direct bearing on fish metabolism.  The warmer the water, the faster the metabolism and need for food.

Poor quality food will result in  poor water quality.  If the fish cannot digest the food it will pass it on as waste resulting in dirtier pond water.

A high quality food is one that is easily digested and then turned into growth and energy.  This results in less waste, better water quality and happier fish.

As mentioned above, temperature is directly related to feeding.  Here is a breakdown based on temperature:

Above 65 - Koi have a high metabolism in warm water.  High levels of protein are needed for growth and energy.  Feed fish two to three times a day.
45 to 65 - As water temperatures cool down, koi need less protein and more carbohydrates in their diet.  A wheat germ based food is easier to digest in cooler temperatures and also contains more fats, which the koi need.
Below 45 - Once the water temperatures drop into the low 40s and below, it is not recommended to feed your koi.  Their metabolism drops to a point where they cannot digest feed.  Resume feeding in the Spring when temperatures rebound.
