One of the ways to ensure the well-being of your Koi is to provide them with high-quality, balanced food, created for their specific nutritional needs. There are different types of food, meant to enhance growth, health or color. Ingredients such as spirulina and carotene enhance color, while wheat germ for example is used for its nutritional and digestive value.
You will soon find that feeding you Koi is a thrilling experience. Never overfeed them, though. Even if they seem to enjoy an extra sipping, you’re not doing them a favor, as overfeeding damages the liver and other internal organs. The excess food in their pond/aquarium can also lead to a fast decrease of the water quality, causing additional health problems. Moderation is the key.
