Default Best type of food(Floating Catfish Food) (have fish pond)


I am looking to where I can get me cheep fish food. I am sure that
since my gold
fish are outside and get bugs that fall in the pond that catfish food
wouldn't be a
problem. It isn't like I have some of those expensive KOI.

Well it seems like your problem is solved. Let them eat bugs.
BTW, I wouldn't waste that nice gmail addy on usenet. It is spamproof
only as long as it is not in general circulation.

Yep. I never fed my goldfish at all. I only started feeding when I got koi.

Too late now :-)

Default Best type of food(Floating Catfish Food) (string have fish)


I don't have much choice in using my gmail account. I don't have a
usenet
access via my ISP.

I guess I will let the fish fend for themselves. Maybe they will eat
more of that
nasty string algae.

Here in Mississippi, most feed stores have catfish food. Cost is $11 per
50# bag. Works for professional catfish farmers and for the dept of fish
and game. Works for our koi and goldfish pond. It will sure work for
goldfish.

Hi Jim I go through about 250 pounds of catfish food per year in the big
pond and sure is cheaper than the koi food. Have you had any problem
with the high protein content of the catfish food with your fish? It
seems to be between 8 and 10 percent higher than the koi food and is
formulated for rapid growth so have held off feeding the koi it.

Hi Bob,

I am sure knnowledgable people will have lots to say about the foods. Here
is my take after 6 years of catfish food. After all, the koi are in fact
German carp selectively bred. They are pretty good at making do and
surviving.

People have made suggestions about the problems with commercial foods. They
are indeed geared for growth. Yet, the MO wildlife folk use catfish food
for their koi and say there is no problem or anticipated problems.

When I asked more about the koi food on the ng, I was told it would cause
fat on the liver and cut koi life by about 20%. That is not so bad as my
koi are valued at $3.95 to $20 (when they were small). I save the cost of
the fish every bag of food! Also, the fish live for up to 100 years. A cut
of 20 years pulls them to an expected death at the time my sons die. I am
not too worried.

Default Best type of food(Floating Catfish Food) (have)


When I changed my home account to a new ISP, I also
lost the usenet groups there. Then in another group,
someone posted something about http://www.individual.net/ .

It is run by a university in Berlin, Germany. They require a simple
sign up process, but it is free.

This has met my needs. It can be used from most news readers,
like Outlook Express, Forte Agent/Free Agent, Opera, Netscape, etc.

They don't have binary groups, which is fine for my needs.

So far it has worked well for me, but I don't use it a whole lot.
