What happens during the holiday / the weekend?
A weekend without the pond keeper feeding them means the fish have to search for their food in the pond themselves – that’s all! It can prove to be a good diet now and then.
How you deal with longer periods without additional feeding depends a lot on your fish stock and the size and age of your pond. Large numbers of koi in a pond without a large marshy and planted zone means your fish won't find enough food and will need to be fed by your neighbours etc. In this case be very careful to show them exactly how much food to give!!! Inexperienced people tend to overfeed excessively. A spoon can be very useful (e.g. 3 heaped tablespoons 1 x per day). JBL offers you a dosing cup with which you or your neighbour can measure the right food amount. You can get the dosing cup at your JBL ProPond specialist shop.
