Comments - This food is specially formulated for the relatively short, omnivorous digestive tract of the Koi, (cyprinus carpio) by one of the leading animal feed nutritionists in the country. To be honest, the food was formulated under very special circumstances and by special request. This custom research is typically unavailable from this prestigious institution to other manufacturers . As part of the agreement to formulate this diet, the researcher, (a PhD scientist) has required that their identity will remain proprietary as they will not allocate time to formulate other feeds.
This food is formulated for the most rapid but safe growth of omnivorous teleost fishes such as Cyprinus carpio [koi] and includes a perfectly (Yes, perfectly!) balanced amino acid profile developed through combination of two animal (one marine fish, one poultry) source proteins and two plant source proteins (wheat and soy). The food also contains several potent color enhancers which may or may not be deleterious to the eye-appeal of the edible flesh of food fish. Do not use for Tilapia, Catfish or Salmonids.
