They’ve been at the bottom of the pond for months and only just recently, with warmer weather, out of the cave and feeding on algae near the top and sides of the pond. My BFFs (Best Fish Friends) have survived the winter and are looking fine. They do have a lot of algae to eat, but hubby thought it would be fun to see if they remembered what the feeding rock (the place I come to when I feed them) was for. So, I got some of the lo-temp fish food and went out to the pond and, sure enough, they remembered. There were lots of sucking noises as they came up and tried to be enthused about this very boring fish food. My hands and fingers also got lots of “fish kisses”.
And another year by the pond begins today, with the first fish feeding of 2010 on the first day of Spring!
