Choose the right Koi food
Choosing the right food for your Koi is one on the most important decisions you must make. Koi Carp is committed to offering a wide selection of medicated, colour enhancing, growth stimulating and sustaining foods.
The feeding pattern, and thus the growth rate, of Koi depends on many factors, such as water temperature, water quality, stocking density and genetic background Koi feed most actively at temperatures in excess of 15c(59F), thus sexually immature fish can grow rapidly during the summer months when the temperature is warmer.
Keep your chosen koi food fresh by using our Large Hikari Koi Food Container which holds 10 kg (30 ltrs) of Hikari or Saki Hikari Food. Comes with a sealed lid to keep your koi food as fresh as possible. Keeping your koi food sealed helps keep your koi food dry and free from natural air that can deplete the added vitamins and minerals within the fish food.
Saki Hikari contains beneficial live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms and is better kept free of direct sunlight, high humidity, using the hikari food containers will keep the product as fresh as possible and the hikari Germ count at preferred levels, by using the Hikari Food Container will keep the superior nutrition you expect from Saki Hikari Koi Foods.
