Can koi and pond fish be overfed? Long Valley- Morris County NJ
We are on the heels of one of our favorite holidays, and we know most of us probably overfed ourselves. Did you every wonder if you can actually overfeed your pond fish? Yes you can! Fish that are overfed in our ponds will eventually develop ponderous bellies and begin to look a little bit like tadpoles, with the big body and the wispy tail. This is not a terminal event for the fish but the impact on the liver and other internal organs can and will be severe. Fish should be fed no more than three times per day. In cooler water they should only be fed once per day, if that.
