Dai Suki All Seasons Koi Food
Dai Suki All Seasons Koi Food is a high quality wheat-germ food that has been especially formulated to provide a balanced diet for KOI during the spring, when KOI are starting to feed after their over wintering period. This food should be fed sparingly to start with and as the filters start to mature, their feed should be increased as the water temperature rises.
As with all KOI it is not advisable to feed below 10°c / 50°f in small ponds as the Koi’s metabolism slows down below this temperature and the Koi will have difficulty in digesting the food. However, it may be fed at all normal temperatures above 10°c/ 50°f even during high summer if required. Although higher protein feeds are more suitable as this is the Koi’s growing period. As the water temperature cools during the autumn period, Koi should be slowly introduced back onto this wheatgerm food, for as long as possible while the water temperature is 10c and above.
The reasoning for the 10°c/ 50°f barrier is as follows in small ponds the water temperature can suddenly fall at night by more than 2°c, this will take the water temperature below the minimum feeding temperature for Koi of 8°c/ 47°f . below this temperature food is not digested but starts to rot in the Koi’s digestive tract and this will result in major problems for the Koi latter on, be it a few weeks or months.
