If there are both smaller and larger fish in the pond, it is worth remembering that larger fish prefer to eat smaller pellets, but smaller fish cannot handle larger pellets. Therefore, it is a good solution to offer pellets of different sizes and structures, ensuring that all fish receive the necessary amount of feed. Fish should be able to consume the feed within 10 minutes. The excess of the feed is necessary to remove from the water and the feeding amount should be decreased. It is not recommended to feed carp when the water temperature drops below 10 ºC.

Grower Astax should be stored in a dry and shaded place. It is recommended to use up the feed within one season.
