How to Feed Koi and Pond Fish At Different Temperatures.

Temperature dynamic in feeding

There is a “temperature dynamic” regarding the feeding of fish. Fish are cold blooded. That means they are ‘water temperature’ if you were to touch them. They don’t generate heat, and their metabolism is directly affected by water temperature. So when they are cold, they have a very slow metabolism. When they are hot, their metabolism is racing. Did you know that for every ten degrees increase in temperature, the metabolism of a cold-blooded organism doubles? It’s a fascinating fact that you will be challenged to fit into a conversation with anyone.
