Winter koi fish care
Radio interview source: Doug Jimerson, garden editor, Better Homes & Gardens
Water gardens add to your landscape with their sound and appearance, and if you have koi fish in there, it's even more interesting. Even though koi are very hardy, they won't survive the winter outside without the proper care. Make sure your koi pond is plenty deep, use a tank heater and aerator, and cut back on the food when temperatures fall.
