    Bro @sivakoi - thanks for the feedback :) As to your questions (2nd week using the autofeeder) :

    1. Behaviour wise no change as my kois are forever hungry. Water quality wise, I need to clean the filter more often as there are more waste since I more or less doubled my feeding quantity.

    2. I don't hand feed my kois and they still rush to me when they see me.

    My feeding regime :

    8am - manual feed (throw food into pond lah :"> ) - Saki Balance + Saki Growth
    10am - autofeeder - Saki Wheatgerm
    12noon - autofeeder - Saki Wheatgerm
    2pm - autofeeder - Saki Wheatgerm
    4pm - autofeeder - Saki Wheatgerm
    6pm - manual feed - Saki Balance + Saki Growth
    8pm - manual feed - Saki Balance + Saki Color

    I feed for 20 minutes (during manual feeding), intermittently throwing one handful of food per time after they've finished the previous lot. All this while (20 mins), I have full blast of fresh water flowing into the pond with overflow out to drain. Started to wash my 3 rows of brushes daily on top of the sieves.

    Hope this explanation helps :)

    Bro Nivek,

    Don't stick too much on fish and water rasio. It is just old myth lar. You can always build 2nd and 3rd pond. If land not enough, still have neighbours house to buy :)

    Hi bro lauts, my tap water has TDS of 16 (unfiltered) and koi pond running for 3 months already :) I guess its another reason why my Sumi development sucks but growth is good.
