:3 They are doing much better. Still skittery but when they know it is mealtime, they are waiting under the food ring. Any other time of the day, though, I usually can't even find the little brats. Koichiro has even taken to nibbling on my fingers again so hopefully hand-feeding won't be too far behind.
Your cats sound like my dogs. Up when the sun is up. I feed my koi between sometime between 8-9 and then around noon and then again around 6p. Depending on how early your pond gets sun, you could feed them when your cats wake you up.
At 76F I would feed them three times a day. I've seen some places say as much as they will eat, but around that temp my guys really only eat enough food for three feedings a day. Plus, I don't get up early enough to feed them 4 times a day. ;p
:D That's my same problem. My future house will be filled with fish tanks. Two divided 10 gals, 55 gal for the goldfish, 29 gal for the kuhlies, 30 gal riverine for some hillstream loaches, 40 gal livebearer tank, 150 gal discus biotope (^-^), and koi pond. My water bill will be crazy high.
Wow. That's pretty warm for the coldwater tank. The good news is that WCMM and dojos come from seasonal waters and should be able to survive high temps like that for a bit. I hope both of our heat spells break soon. It's been in the 100's here the past few weeks. The koi are getting fed 4x a day. If it gets any warmer, I shouldn't feed them anymore. What a summer this has been.
So many fish, so few tanks. But I'm a little worried about my so-called coldwater community. Since it's in the garage, I can't regulate its temp. It's 84 F right now. D: I have the bio-wheel and a bubbler going for oxygen but I still feel sorry for the dojos and WCMM. Supposedly this heat spell is going to snap soon . . .
