  17. TigerAlbino1800 says:

    u stop feedin them cuz the food can rot inside the fish. if u have a 4ft deep pond leave the fish outside. if u dont put it in a indoor tank

  18. 04261995 says:

    so basically no matter what in the winter inside or outside you stop feeding them

  19. TigerAlbino1800 says:

    u stop feedin them, but if the pond is 4ft under or more the koi just hibernate there

  20. 04261995 says:

    In the winter when the temp drops below 50 and you bring them inside do you stop feeding them.
