Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The bright oranges, reds and yellows make a great backdrop to my pond and complement the many colors of my Koi. It's a great time to get out my camera and take some shots of the colors reflecting off the water's surface. It's also a good time to do a little winter prep. Before I switch over to wheat germ (below 50°F), I like to use Koi Growth to fatten them up a bit since their fat is what they will be living off of while they hibernate. If you have frogs, sink a pot of clay or a good pond soil mix in the bottom of the pond so they will have a place to bury into during the long winter months. Also, if your pond is near trees, purchase a pond net. It will make fall maintenance a whole lot easier.
