Dainichi KOI - GROWTH-PLUS (1.1 lb) Bag - Small Pellet Information

Part #: 01711

Give your koi the best food pellet for complete nutrition. Some of the characteristics of koi that people find attracting is its size and color. Enhance this features by feeding your fish with Dainichi Koi - Growth Plus from Pet Store. This feed is best for providing all the nutrients required to keep kois growing healthy and bright. The Dainichi formula is an excellent choice if you are breeding show quality kois.

This feed is packed with proteins, vitamins and minerals. Growth-Plus is made of highly selected spirulina, krill, shrimp, which are all good sources of proteins for growth and color enhancement. Vitamins C and E also adds to the improvement of color as they promote luster and shine. It is also formulated with montmorillonite clay for maintaining a healthy and balanced digestive system. This mineral keeps your koi's belly at superior condition for effective absorption of nutrients, leading to better growth.

Dainichi Koi - Growth Plus is an ideal koi feed especially during the peak growth season. With its unique and overflowing blend of proteins, vitamins, minerals and other supplements, your koi will surely be growing happily and disease-free in no time. Its formula is dedicated to speedy growth and lustrous color for an attractive, show-quality kois. It is a fish pellet that is very much inviting even to the pickiest fish you have. Hobbyists and experts suggest frequent feeding in small amount. This feed can also be used alone or together with other supplements.

GROWTH PLUS is our specialty growth formula. Formulated with unprecedented amounts of Antarctic krill, shrimp and white fish meal, this formula's main objective is to produce a maximum growth and superior body conformation. With the exception of the readily convertable carotenoids from the krill and shrimp, there are no other color enhancers added to impair the unmatched growth performance. Koi convert the nutrients from food much more effectively into size when they don't expend valuable energy on putting on color. A two-step application of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins C & E, ensure that the luster, sheen and whites of your koi are always at their best. As in all other Dainichi koi foods, GROWTH PLUS contains calcium montmorillonite clay to simulate the natural ingestion of mineral particles and to bind and neutralize metabolic toxins. Raw, fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes and garlic ensure that the fish are healthy and free of internal parasites. Furthermore, the scouring action of the clay enhances a continued rejuvenation of the digestive tract, which in turn ensures a maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. With only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source of vitamins E and B), GROWTH PLUS keeps the body conformation of all koi in a constant show-ready condition. As an additional benefit, the low waste production by koi, helps keeps the dissolved organics levels low in your pond, making it an invaluable aid in eliminating algal blooms.

White fish meal, wheat flour, krill, shrimp meal, wheat germ, soybean meal, calcium montmorillonite clay, brewer's dried yeast, powdered milk, vitamin mix, mineral mix, garlic, protease and natural gum.

This is not a 'color food'.

Color foods are metabolically expensive, meaning that koi expend valuable energy into coloring-up instead of converting the energy into increased body mass. The high levels of carotenoids present in the shrimp and krill produce great reds (hi), however, for deeper magenta tone red and blue colors, this formula should be supplemented with one of our spirulina containing formulas such as PREMIUM or COLOR INTENSIFIER.

Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. All Dainichi foods have low levels of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract and to maintain a lean show-ready body conformation.

GROWTH PLUS is a growth promoter without equal in any climate, but is especially valuable for use in northern climates, where the peak growth season is relatively short. This formula can be used at any time as long as the water temperature is above 60°-65° F for extended periods of time.

Koi Food Product Review by GARY STROTHENKE (Posted on 9/1/07)

Comments: Have tried several brands in the past (obviously not all of them) but Dainichi is clearly the favorite of my Koi. I haven't tried it personally, but I would have to say, based on my Koi's appetite, I would say it is probably the freshest and best tasting. I've bought 3 other brands and by far, they eat this stuff up the most aggressively.
