Hand Feeding Koi Instructions


Steps to Hand Feeding Koi

Choose the right Koi
Some Koi tolerate human presence more than others and some Koi are not shy about coming close. Koi are very sociable fish that live in harmony with humans that are very happy to get close, and will often take food from a human hand.
Select the feeding place
Whether it is going to be your own pond, your aquarium tank or even a local park, it is important to choose one place that you will always treat as your “feeding spot”. The feeding spot should be free of sudden noises (such as splashing water), sudden movements (such as other humans walking by) and too much light/shade contrast.
Start slowly
At first, just throw the fish food into the water and observe the Koi as they eat. Make your presence obvious (that is, don’t move away). The first Koi to eat will be those that are bravest. Their determination to eat will encourage the less courageous to come along later. You may need to repeat this process of the Koi just getting used to your presence several times.
Move your hand closer to the Koi as they feed
After a few tries with you standing close to the Koi, start to stretch out your hand towards them. Leave it hovering above them for a short time as they feed, so that they can see it.
Try food in your hand once you feel certain that the Koi are used to your presence and your hand
One way to observe their familiarity with you is when you see the Koi getting excited by your presence, as they have come to associate your being around with receiving food. Do this at the same time as your other attempts at getting the Koi used to you, with the same food and in the same place as before.
Set your hand into the water, and doesn’t make fast movements or the Koi won’t take the food
Release some of the food into the water and leave your hand outstretched with some food still in it. Wait for the boldest Koi to come close. Again, this may take several attempts before the Koi feel comfortable enough to share from your hand.
Continue the feeding by hand regularly
If you want to continue feeding your Koi by hand, practice it regularly so that they remain friendly towards you and are not scared by your hand. It remains important to keep a regular method so that the Koi are not spooked; this is less a problem once koi are trained but might be a problem with smaller, more delicate Koi.

Feeding Koi Recommendation

Steps to Feed Koi

Take the temperature of the water your Koi is living in
Because Koi only eat certain foods in certain temperature.
If the water is under 70 degrees Fahrenheit, feed it once per day or every other day
When the temp lowers to 63 Fahrenheit or lower, feed it every other day. Another option is to feed it a cereal-based diet because cereal breaks down quickly.
In warm water
Koi under 8 inches in length should eat around 5 percent of their own body weight, while Koi over eight inches in length should only eat around two percent of their own body weight.
Provide the nutrition your Koi need
A healthy Koi often have brighter colors than a malnourished one. While your koi can’t just live on live food alone, your koi should enjoy the treats now and then. There are earthworms, which is the favorite of koi, prawns or cockles.
Use koi food in pellet form for their main diet
While Koi eat everything you gave them, most aren’t nutritional and can harm them.

Koi Feeding Guide

Less than 50F or 10C
Do not feed.
50F – 55F or 10C – 12.7C
2 – 3 times per week.
55F – 59F or 12.7C – 15C
4 – 5 times per week.
59F or 15C
6 times per week.
60F – 65F or 15.5C – 18.3C
1 time a day for everyday.
65F – 72F or 18.3C – 22.2C
1 – 2 times a day for everyday.
72F – 80F or 22.2C – 26.6C
3 – 4 times a day for everyday.

Protect Pond from Algae

Steps to Protect Pond from Algae

Give the algae competition
For plant-only ponds you will need to establish a plant ratio that covers 70% of the water surface to compete for the nutrients that algae feeds on. The addition of beneficial pond bacteria can also be used to compete for nutrients against algae. Other nutrient control measures can be done manually such as raking the pond surface or vacuuming the pond walls and bottom to remove muck.
Shade a Koi pond that has little plant coverage with a pergola, a sail shade, or even pieces of Styrofoam during the sunny summer months.
Pond colorants can also be used to shade the water. There are mostly available in black and blue options and are non staining and non toxic.
During Spring and Summer
Plan on 10% water changes weekly and using a dechlorinator before adding fresh water.
Get an ultraviolet sterilizer unit
Will control free floating single-celled algae. Combine this with an external filter for the UV unit for best results.
Create your own external filter (look up “skippy filter” on internet) or buy one to help convert the ammonia waste that fish produce to nitrites, and nitrate.
Control the resulting nitrites and nitrates with water changes, and add floating plants such as water hyacinth, water lettuce, or others to help consume excess nitrates.
Allow your pond to become established
The pond walls will over time host heterotrophic and chemotrophic (beneficial) bacteria. Heterotrophs consume organic, carbon based waste like fish food, fish waste and dead vegetation, while chemotrophs will help remove toxins like ammonia from the water.
Let the filter become well-established & remove algae
String algae or blanket weed algae occurs when free floating algae is controlled, but there is an excessive amount of nutrients in the pond. Allow your filter to become established and remove this type of algae with a toilet brush. Twist the string algae around the brush like you would cotton candy and discard it. String algae are most prevalent in new ponds and will usually be controlled as the pond matures.
Add aeration to your pond
Aeration stimulates microbial activity and adds essential oxygen and circulation to the pond which deters algae growth and reduces anaerobic digestion of waste.
