What's in common Koi foods?

February 03, 2016 - 14:34

While we've looked at this issue before, those were high-end Koi foods, not used by the average club member.  This little chart was developed by Sue Boydstun to help her club members start to look at the ingredients found in common Koi foods, so they can start reading labels in order to tell the good foods from the bad foods.  We know that corn is a poor ingredient for Koi food, cause it cause poor body shape and excess hard body fat that can actually end up killing the Koi.  Fish meal is an ideal first ingredient.  See the list of ingredients in order for several Koi foods by clicking on the picture or title...

These are just the first 6 ingredients - to see all the ingredients, you may download the pdf from the link below the chart.
