Thanks for the feedback!
I've been wondering the same question, so i did some research. I found they seem to like oatmeal and uncooked rice, really just any dry starch. My kids always love to dig up w…orms and feed it to them. The fish go crazy! And of course keep with your regular fish food if any. Although mine just eat algae and other snacks we feed them. Thanks for asking! -Amy
Yes. They don't know that they're eating their own young.
No they will not. If the goldfish are too large the Koi will leave them alone. If however they are small then if the Koi can fit them into their mouths they will indeed eat go…ldfish and any other fish small enough to fit. Koi were developed by the Japanese to live in ponds and be viewed from above. That is why they have very broad backs and grow to over 2 feet long. Please don't condem them to a life in a tank. Retailers who sell Koi to folks who don't have ponds are condemming the fish to a slow and nasty death.
Yes koi fish can eat bannannas but only in very little pieces. koi fish can actually eat any type of good comon fruit. the only fruit that i know that they can not eat is grap…e fruit.
Koi will eat guppies or small goldfish readily. In fact, koi will eat most small fish. They will also eat water vegetation as well. I suggest duckweed. They will eat quite a… range of things including:- prawns, cockles, crab sticks, brown bread (not white as it has bleach in it) also try brown bread with natural honey - they love it, lettuce, pearl barley, tofu, sweet potato, sausage, oranges, silkworm pupae, dried shrimp to rattle off a few, but make sure it's a varied and balanced diet you give them. Most of my list should be fed as a supplement to a staple commercial fish food, of which there are many on the market. I'm sure that they're not good for them, but my grandson started a 15 koi riot when he threw his M&Ms into the pond. He had dropped them and didn't want to eat them - they must have been washed by the pond water, because the fish most certainly didn't mind them. On a more serious note, weetabix (or Lidl's cheap equivalent, does their tummies no end of good, as do shredded wheat, especially if the fish are mainly fed dried food.
Yes. I have lost two this year to a snake.
Koi are carp. They are very boney but can be eaten.
fish food You can choose to not feed them at all because Koi are bottom feeders, and the more you feed them the less algae they will eat. Feeding koi is done only for enter…tainment reasons. Though if you do feed them, we recommend not feeding fish more than once a day. The fish have plenty of things to nibble on in the pond, and the more you feed the fish, the more waste they will produce. The only time you have to feed your koi is when a new pond is installed, because there is no algae for the fish to eat. Also you must feed your koi fish less in the wintertime (depending on your area). Don't feed the fish when the water is under 55 degrees because the fish metabolism is slowed down and won't be able to process the food. To put things shortly, they eat fish food if they are kept in an aquarium or pond.
Koi are omnivorous and will eat just about any fish that is small enough to fit in their mouths. Koi are essentially pond fish and were bred with broad colourfull backs and gr…ow to over 2 feet long to be viewed from above.
good question they eat Algae, Aquatic vegetation, and small aquatic life good luck
Turtles are in fact herbivores and carnivores so they can possibly feed on koi fish
yes, depending on its size and the size of the other fish.
Fish can have a variety of foods. This can include live, flake, pellet, frozen and blocks. If you are unsure of what to feed - type into google the fish you are feeding and th…en what does it eat. eg. Fish in the wild eat a variety of different types of foods, as they can be herbiverous, carnivorous, or omnivorous. Thus they eat plant matter, other fish, invertebrates, bio films, etc.
They get along with goldfish but you'll end up with babies that are part goldfish. I have them in the same pond and that's what happened to me. The main problem with put…ting Koi with other fish, is sometimes the other fish like to eat Koi.
