Pond fish food in the Maxi Zoo online shop
Pond fish food: for true food connoisseurs from koi to sturgeon
Pond and ornamental fish such as koi, goldfish, sterlet (a small subtype of sturgeon) and others appreciate a tasty and balanced diet. This best includes optimally digestible (fish) protein and important omega fatty acids. High-quality fish feed is ideally made from suitable and easily digestible ingredients. Various crustacea and shellfish such as krill, daphnia, shrimps and amphipods are often included, as well as some protein products such as mealworms, silk worms and spirulina. Spirulina is a type of cyanobacteria that, in contrast to algae, does not contain iodine. Soybean meal is not digested as well by pond and ornamental fish. The food should also contain no preservatives, if possible.
A question of form
Fish food is available in various forms, for example as pond flakes, granules, pellets and (floating) sticks. The different feeds do not sink to the bottom of the pond at the same rate and serve different preferences in terms of food intake. Some pond inhabitants consume the food directly on the surface of the pond. Other types of fish prefer to catch food as it is sinking. You should also note that a different type of feed may be more suitable for young fish than for older fish. Whichever food you choose also depends on the size of the fish in your pond. Small fish may not be able to consuming large pieces, or only with difficulty. Fish food in flake form, crushed as granules or in another way, is usually ideal for them. Sticks and pellets are also often available in different sizes for this reason.
Depending on the product, pond fish food may be intended as year-round food, purely as summer or winter food or as spring or autumn food. A distinction is also made between main feed and supplementary feed. The former creates an adequate nutritional basis and promotes healthy growth. The latter – for example in the form of power snacks or multivitamin drops – is intended to cover the specific nutrient requirements of one or more animal species. Supplementary feed is not always required in addition to the main feed, but a combination is often useful. Please note the feeding recommendations on the respective product.
