When to stop feeding pond goldfish and is it ok to remove pump and preesure filter

Post by David Wrigh » Tue, 25 Oct 2011 18:56:52



I stopped feeding the pond goldfish a week ago after the first frost.
Since then it has got warmer and fish have risen to the top of the pond.
Should I resume feeding or leave it till Spring. Also Ive taken the pump
and filter out as I have been told its safe to do so in Winter. Any
advice welcomed

The normal advice is to stop feeding when the water temperature is below
50F (10C). Floating thermometers are available from both pond shops and
swimming pool shops.
