One of the most common mistakes made is buying koi food in bulk. Once a bag of koi food is opened and exposed to air and light the vitamin content begins to break down and will diminish rapidly.

Only purchase the amount of food your fish will consume in a 3-4 week period. Food should always be stored a cool dark place in an airtight container.

 

If you are looking for a great healthy treat for your koi consider giving them Fresh fruit or vegetables. Peel, section and remove any seeds from the orange, cut into small sections and watch them enjoy. Leaf lettuce is also a rich source of vitamin C and other nutrients. Even small amounts of brown bread have wheat germ and vitamins.

Holistic Choice Koi Food is another great option. It is a healthy staple diet using human grade freeze dried fruits and vegetables such as strawberries, pineapples, peas, carrots and more. Another great way to ensure your fish receives the best diet possible.
