For a long time, it was believed that feeding pond fish contributed to the growth of algae in the pond. However, this is not true, as high-quality pond fish food is highly digestible and provides all the necessary nutrients for the fish. When all the food is consumed and assimilated by the fish, it does not impact the growth of algae in any way. Not to mention that the quality of the fish food makes a significant difference here!

Store your pond fish food in packaging that is protected from light to preserve all its nutrients.

Feeding Pond Fish


It is wise to choose fish food based on the species of your pond fish. For bottom-dwelling pond fish, it is preferable to opt for food in tablet form that will sink quickly to the bottom of the garden pond. Fish that tend to stay at the surface will prefer floating food, such as fish flakes. Don’t forget that pond fish also need to consume a rich and varied diet. Offering them live food helps diversify their nutrition. For more information on this topic, please refer to the magazine article on “Live Food for Fish.”
