    Safe to feed OSW yet?

    Safe to move onto OSW feed now or should we stick to wheatgerm based products still ? i am feeding mussels twice a week to help mix it up a bit and the odd bit of bread flake which they love, i think they are fed up with wheatgerm based winter food......what temps can we change over or start to mix up the pellets maybe ?

    I am no expert on koi foods, but I'm certain I can recall a video from cuttlebrook saying they use the same food all year round, which is growth from what I can tell. They just reduce the amount at lower temps.
