Koi fish in pond

What Food Should I Feed My Koi?

Koi are highly prized by collectors, new fish keepers, and the general public as a whole. Although, given the wide variety of foods and limited information on each, ensuring these fabulous fish receive the nutrition they need can be a headache for koi keepers. While the dietary requirements of koi are often flexible, investing in a high-quality diet ensures your koi and pond water will look their best and your koi will flourish. As the worldwide leader in providing scientifically developed aquatic nutrition, koi keepers can have the peace of mind that the unique needs of their koi will be provided for when using Hikari®. Whether you are new to the hobby or a devoted collector, at Hikari® we offer options that are rigorously tested, proven over decades by breeders and hobbyists, and scientifically tuned to offer unique nutrient packages that help bring consistent success.

Saki-Hikari® Growth and Saki-Hikari® Color Enhancing

Our Saki-Hikari® Growth and Saki-Hikari® Color Enhancing were both designed with the discerning enthusiast in mind, focusing on award-winning size. Color, conformation or the look of the shiroji, look no further than our Saki-Hikari® line. Both of these diets are engineered with the highest quality nutrients to bolster the health and look of your koi. Our Saki-Hikari® branded dietary options were actually the first koi diets on the market to include probiotics more than a decade ago, before other brands understood the importance or could develop a diet with proper probiotic options. Even today, many foods that profess to have probiotics offer choices that the koi cannot benefit from.

Hikari® Staple™

For an economical option that still provides optimum nutrition, our Hikari® Staple™ is a great choice. This daily diet contains all the basic nutrition your fish requires, and the inclusion of higher protein levels and stabilized Vitamin C ensures rapid growth and optimal immune system health when used exclusively. If you are looking for an easy and cost-effective way to keep your koi in top form, our Hikari® Staple™ is a compelling choice for new and experienced owners alike.

Hikari® Spirulina

If you have already invested in quality food options but want to further enhance your koi’s look, our Hikari® Spirulina is a supplemental diet that can be added to other Hikari® foods to promote vibrant coloration. This diet contains just the right amount of pure-culutred spirulina, an ingredient high in carotenoids that can significantly enhance the color and beauty of your koi. It is also rich in essential nutrients, and when combined with other Hikari® koi products, can go a long way in helping your koi look their best without negatively impacting the shirjo.

If your koi are lacking in the color or growth you desire, why not join the legion of Hikari® users  around the world and see the results for yourself!
