nowadays there are many fish farm to feed catfish,golden fish,koi, and so on other kinds of fishes, but which kind of pellets is better for koi, floating pellets or sinking pellets?some people prefer floating fish feed pellet mill to make floating pellets,because they not only can their fishes, and enjoy hand feeding, but also because they can see what is happening to their food. they worry a bit about with sinking pellets at the bottom of the water,but we can not only just for checking our fishes and enjoy our hand feeding,we should think about our fish features and live habit.
Sinking Fish Feed Pellet
But for some ornamental fish like goldfish and koi, sinking fish feed pellet is better for them.Because goldfish being a greedy pet will usually dash and swim towards their food and during the commotion while grabbing the pellets, they will end up sucking air into their stomach as they gulp their meal. Usually what you can observe is that air pockets will get trapped in their poo discharge and prolonged condition are sometimes blamed as the cause of flipping disease seen happening on goldfish. Therefore use only sinking food pellets for your goldfish.
Bottom feeder shrimp prefer sinking pellets (density greater than that of water, 1 g/cm3) and will not accept a floating feed. The farmer can estimate feeding rates according to the growth in his pond ,which can confirm feeding whether too low or too high than the actual requirement.
Floating Fish Feed Pellet
Floating fish feed pellet are usually used in larger underlings, food fish and broodfish. Floating on the surface of the water (usually maintaining integrity in the water for several hours), the fish must come up to the surface to eat. The farmer can observe their fish each day, which helps in monitoring their health and vigor. Also they can adjust the amount of feed per day and avoid wasted feed and pond pollution problems.
