    Weird weather to be feeding heavy.

    Weird weather to be feeding heavy. Looked outside this morning and saw it is over cast and windy. Happy I didnt start my heavy feeding yet, but the season is getting shorter and shorter...Maybe start in July when it gets in the consistant 90's. We will see....

    I'm running about 70 degrees and just started "the big push". Am feeding about 6 times per day- Hakari and the last meal Izeki paste.

    I'm at 74.1 F and feeding LOTS. We've been feeding 80% Hi-Silk (red package) and the whites look whiter. 20% Nigata. Do you folks think 80% Hi-Silk is too much? Algae must be growing more as the koi look like they are spending more time grazing.
