Winter Pond Maintenance: Keeping Your Koi Fish Healthy in the Cold

As the temperatures drop and winter approaches, it’s important to take steps to protect your koi fish pond. In this post, Aiobisa shares his tips on winterizing your pond.

Important tips:

  • Move your pond pump closer to the outlet and air stones to prevent them from freezing.
  • Use a pond heater to keep the water temperature from dropping too low.
  • Check your fish for signs of illness, such as lethargy, loss of appetite, or clamped fins.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your koi fish stay healthy and happy throughout the winter.

Additional tips for winter pond maintenance:

  • Keep an eye on the water level and top it up as needed.
  • Remove any debris from the pond, such as leaves and branches.
  • Don’t feed your fish as often in the winter, as their metabolism slows down.

By taking care of your pond now, you can avoid problems in the spring when the weather warms up.

I hope this summary is helpful!
