Can I Feed Fruit ToMy Koi?|Rochester|New York|NY
It can be fun, although not necessary to give your pond fish a summer snack from time to time (not more than once a week). Koi in particular will enjoy watermelon, grapefruit, orange slices, and even Honey Nut Cheerios.
Be sure the fish are active before feeding and only toss in a VERY small amount of any snack (the amount the fish can eat right away) since old food is not good for your pond. In particular, peas will sink to the bottom of the pond.
