I’m not the biggest fan of winter, mostly because it’s so dang cold and I can never get warm. I kind of feel like that’s how fish might also feel about winter. Think about it…all spring and summer they are swimming around all happy in warm water, then slowly the water drops in temperature (or quickly depending on the year). Then their digestive system starts slowing down. The mind of a fish has got to be thinking “fml not this again!! Where did all the bubbles go from that sweet waterfall where I like to spend my time??!!! C’mon Jack, turn that waterfall back and feed me you jerk!” I like thinking that Koi fish have a little hostility and a sense of entitlement in them just because they are awesome fish…and it makes things more fun. Anyway…have you ever wondered how you might be able to make winter more enjoyable for your fish?
