Fish Food

Keeping your aquatic friends happy and healthy means ensuring they have enough food to maintain good nutrition. At Gardeners Dream, our fish foods are designed to do just that. With specific fish foods that are formulated for different fish, water types, and formats, we can help you keep any fish in top condition! Explore our full range of fish food below and don't hesitate to get in touch if you need help selecting the right feed. Don't forget, there's free UK delivery on every order with no minimum order threshold.

Fish Food Categories

From our tropical fish food to our cold water fish pellets, or our fish flakes, we choose feeds that are nutritional and won't fry your fish with unneeded chemicals and hard-to-digest ingredients. We choose fish food that is high-quality and packed with the nutrients and vitamins your fish need.

Along with our fish gravel, we can help you keep your aquarium clean and your fish well-fed.

Tropical Fish Food

Our tropical fish foods are designed for any tropical variety. It's ideal for feeding tropical fish that need a little extra vitamin C and protein to keep their immune systems up.

Like with all our feeds, this food is made with natural, sustainable ingredients that are easy for your fish to digest and minimise waste. These tropical flakes, for example, suit koi as well as goldfish, ide, and carp.

Pond Fish Food

Not all fish live in a tank, but that's okay because we have great fish food on this page for pond-dwelling species. To keep your pond fish healthy, this all-round pond fish food can be used two to three times a day. It floats on the surface and allows your fish to eat as much as they need.

Remember to let your neighbours know what quantity of fish food to use when you go on holiday!

Cold Water Fish Food

For all manner of cold water fish, whether they're inside or outside, we have fish food that's perfect for them. It comes in different forms, including pellets and flakes. You can learn more about the forms below, and get in touch with us at Gardeners Dream for advice on which to choose.

Our extra light premium fish sticks, for example, are perfect for ornamental cold water fish.

Specific Fish Food Types

For optimum nutrition, you might not necessarily feed your tropical fish with the same fish pellets or flakes as your outdoor pond fish. With different nutritional values, these healthy foods can be used for angelfish, discus, catfish, and more - just find the right food that's suitable for your pet.

No matter what food you choose, there's free delivery at Gardeners Dream!

High Protein

High protein foods are ideal for any fish variety that lives in cold water ponds. The added protein content makes it great for predatory fish species and helping your fish grow.

Our red high protein fish pellets also contain added natural pigments (paprika and astaxanthin) to help your fish maintain their bright colours.

This type of food is very popular.

Koi

Living in a pond rather than an aquarium, koi fish need good nutrition to thrive. Our koi fish food contains spirulina and omega-3 rich algae, which is essential for good growth. In the wild, omnivorous koi would typically enjoy a diet of insects and algae, so we've also added a source of protein to this food too.

Koi diets can change their diet with the weather, eating differently during the cold months. Adjust your feeding schedule over the holiday period to suit. You can stock up on fish food at Gardeners Dream with free delivery!

Goldfish

Goldfish food provides a complete and rounded diet for cold water fish. Feed your goldfish these flakes to keep them lively and healthy all year round.

You can also use this feed for a number of cold water aquarium fish. It's high in vitamin C and E for good immunity and strong fins.

Wheat Germ

Wheat germ fish food is high in vitamin E, fatty acids and minerals that your pond based fish will love. As a slow-release carb, it helps your outdoor fish store energy.

At Gardeners Dream, we don't recommend wheat germ for your tank or aquarium fish, as it is designed to help fish build up fat stores ready for the colder winter months - a mute point for a temperature-controlled environment.

Algae

Fish that enjoy eating algae and plant matter in the wild will love our algae flakes and fish foods. Algae is packed with vitamin B12 and nutrients to improve the immune system and vitality of tropical and ornamental aquarium fish.

Available in different sizes, we've got the premium algae fish food you need to keep your fish swimming!

Mealworm

Mealworm is a type of dried fish food that's ideal for pond fish that need a high quantity of fat and protein in their diet. Predatory fish in particular will thank you for buying this fish food from Gardeners Dream!

We recommend using mealworm food once or twice a day.

Fish Food Formats

When you choose your fish food, you need to decide on the format. This will determine the quantity you need! Depending on whether you have cold water or tropical aquarium fish, you may need to choose between flakes, pellets, sticks, and granules.

At Gardeners Dream, we have a wide range of different fish foods for all size and variety of fish.

Flakes

Fish flake type food is best for feeding a large quantity of fish multiple times a day. The flakes float to the surface of the pond or tank (you can find different flakes for different water environments) allowing the fish to eat what they need and leave what they don't.

Pellets

Fish pellets are a type of food that we recommend using for goldfish and other fish that would naturally feed off the bottom and scavenge for snacks. Sinking to the bottom of the tank or pond, pellets also prevent fish from gulping air at the surface as they feed.

The quantity you will need depends on the type and size of your fish, as well as the season. Get in touch if you need some advice!

Granules

Fish food granules are similar pellets but usually smaller in size. We have a good selection of fish food granules here at Gardeners Dream, including slow and fast-sinking granules to keep your fish active and engaged during feeding time.

Keep Your Fish Happy with Gardeners Dream!

Our fish food selection is diverse, with feeds to suit cold water fish, aquarium dwellers, and everything in-between. With different formulas to suit different diets, plus different pack sizes to suit your quantity of fish, we have everything you need!

Gardeners at heart, we love tending to plants as well as animals and fish. Explore our full range of pets and wildlife products next.

As always, there's free UK delivery on every order regardless of whether you're bulk-buying fish food or just want to try something new.

FAQs

What kind of food do fish eat?

Fish eat fish food that's high in protein, fats, vitamins and minerals to mimic the diet they'd have in the wild. The quantity you need depends on the fish species

Which is better for fish, flakes or pellets?

Both flakes and pellet fish food have advantages. Flakes are best for feeding fish at the surface, while pellets are best for feeding fish that like to forage at the base of their tank or pond.

What do you feed fish when you have no food?

If you are out of fish food, what you feed your fish depends on the variety. Omnivorous fish, like koi, may enjoy fruit, veg and insects. Goldfish are known to enjoy a small quantity of lettuce!

What house food can I feed my fish?

Leafy greens are usually a good replacement for fish food. If you keep reptiles and have predatory fish, some species may enjoy eating insect food. Cucumber, raspberry and courgette may also be enjoyed by some fish species.
