    Hi Bro, both are equally gud. There is no definite answer, it depends from individual koi. Some koi thrive from one brand and some with others. So you have to try and find out your self. Gud luck :)

    The best is to mix few types/brands concurrently.
    Don't ask me why!!!

    Agree, i'm using few types and mix them based on my needs such as

    1) WG+ Hi grow
    2) WG + color
    3) Only WG
    4) Only Hi grow
    5) Sinking WG
    etc etc etc :-))

    Not much difference bro. It's not about the money, it's what preferred by your koi and the best suits them well

    agree...from the fishes' growth that you posted in other forum i firmly believe your food choice is the best one so far....i use this as combination only due to quite pricey for my poor kois... :-))

    I think koi food has a vital role to play in our grooming of koi. However, it is also easily mistaken between the effect of koi food and the koi's natural genetic quality. The best benchmark to good food is what effect it is deemed to achieve, how quickly it achieves this and what are the long term effects. The answer to this is never simple, but it is true that what works in 1 pond might not in another.

    I benchmark the best of koi food to be one that can achieve what another cannot. For example, if you have a particular koi whose beni never seems to develop, and the food you feed suddenly shows you an impact, then that to me is a great colour food.

    Well said James , thats why good idea to try many food and feeding mix. To cater to your need to secure beni , shiroji etc. Also to notice the environment , too much waste and water clarity for one, after feeding.

    Honestly I m not too worried about temporary murky water from feeding especially when pond is ocerstock which is the case for most hobbyist.
  • lautslauts November 2014

    No , not the temporary murky from fines that clears within an hour but rather murky water that lingers. Possibly due to increase coliforms in water column as result from feed.

    i fed all my kois with kenkokanri hisilk21 never use colour food for almost a year

    Kenkokanri is undoubtedly good koi food.... but if you are thinking you don't need colour food, that is probably because you are not having a major showa collection like most other hobbyists.
