Welcome to Shinshiro Koi
Importers of Top Quality Japanese Koi
As the mild Autumn weather seems to have come to a close with sub-zero temperatures and a sprinkle of snow, we need to give thought to our fishy friends. Any aeration should now be turned off. In fact, aeration should be discontinued whenever the air temperature is lower than the water temperature to prevent unneccesary cooling of the pond.
It is also the time to be feeding your fish an easily digestable food especially designed for Winter. This will usually be a wheatgerm based food. The lower limits of temperature for feeding during the colder months varies with the food you choose. Some foods will have a recommendation to stop feeding @ 6°C while others go as low as 4°C.
January is almost upon us so just a gentle reminder:
