Little Fins and Little Mouths

If you have fish in your pond, sooner or later they are going to have babies. Late spring to early summer usually marks the time of year when koi and goldfish start to spawn. When koi and goldfish spawn, they produce thousands of eggs but very few actually survive and grow up into baby fish. Koi are egg “scatterers,” meaning they generally deposit their eggs on the bottom of the pond or in plants. The eggs hatch a few days after, although, you probably won’t be able to see them for several weeks because they are too small. At this stage in development, the babies will feed off of all sorts of microorganisms in your pond. After a couple months the babies are about an inch long and may start eating real food. In order to “bulk” them up, feed them our High Protein koi food. There are no fillers and will ensure the proper nutrients for your baby koi to grow up big and beautiful.
