Hi All,

I’m now starting to drop my pond temps to get down to 12 by the end of the month when I’ll stop feeding for a couple of months at least, they’ve been fed wheatgerm for the last couple of weeks twice a day as opposed to 10 feeds a day through October and November. What’s your plans for feeding and what temperatures will you be holding for the winter period?

I am going to change my routine this year. Taking temperature to 13 degrees. And will continue to feed a very small amount of food every day.

Normally I take temperature to 8 degrees and stop feeding.

I’ve usually kept mine around 13/14 degrees throughout the winter and fed a little. I’m undecided whether to go down to 12 or give them a full winter at 8 degrees. What are the pros and cons going down to 8 degrees?
