Takazumi Koi Food

Post by DaveB on Sat Feb 18, 2012 6:22 am

I came across this koi food which is sold by a alocal koi dealer and wondered what your thoughts are

I like the idea of feeding the imune boosting food in spring and Autum and changing the diet to suit the differet seasons. Also the temp at which it suggests you can feed down to

I have not heard of this Brand of Koi Pellet until now Dave ...

How much does it cost per Kilo ? .... and do you know if the `Fish Meal` is WHOLE or simply White Fish Meal ?

I feed ProBites myself ..... does Gatwick Gary still sell the Product do you know ?

Found this link which gives an idea of prices, which depends upon what you are using as they are all different and also depends upon how much you want to buy. However the prices do seam vey reasonable and not sure what quality the protien is but know it is used by some hobbiests with high end quality koi

There is a £3 difference between Takazumi Vital and Probites per Kilo Dave ...

Why not try a Kilo of Takazumi Koi Pellets if you can buy it locally and see how it goes Very Happy

It will be interesting to see what you think. There is quite a variety to choose from for different needs ( Hope its not just a marketing ploy) and I like the price. Good luck with it and keep us posted.

Yes I agree about Pro-bites but now that I plan to feed a bit more due to having cheap heating ,£3 per kilo on hikari,it is a big saving ( however if it turns out to be rubbish then it would be false economy)

Vital and the gold. There have been a few people on the Yorkshire BKKS website who are also willing to give it a go. I might even get on the growth food for a while this year the way the solar panels & the heat pump are working.

Mine have only been given a `Handful` of pellets per day throughout Winter Dave despite Temps not dipping any lower than 10C ... averaging 14C mostly ... I will however increase feed rate once Temps hike to 16-18C .... Very Happy

I got mine yesterday. I forgot to check the size of pellet which is a bit small for my larger Koi but they ate it no problems anyway. There is some who would aurgue that the smaller pellet is more easily digestible and therfore better for them?

I prefer the `Small` Pellets Dave ... although these are described as `Medium` .... they are exactly the same size the Pro-Bites were .... Very Happy

Noteworthy also is the lengthy `expiry date` 2013 November which is Fab ...

Pond now betweeen 15 & 16 degs C and feeding a mixture of Vital & Gold + what is left of medicarp. Still only a small hand full twice per day. I will try & maintain these temps for april with a combination of heatpump & boiler and hopefully high ambient temps which are forcast to fall on friday. That darn haze has returned again.

I will increase the feed to 1% BW until Temps climb above 21C then gradually increase the rate to 2% BW throughout Summer Very Happy

Fret not about the `Haze` Dave ... your `focus` upon it (if it`s annoying you) is likely to promote it lingering longer Wink

Why not think about your beautiful new Yamabuki Koi Ogon Babe instead Sweetie .. Very Happy and how excited you will be when she arrives Yes

We have been `CONDITIONED` to Fret about every little irritation Dave .. with Money/Relationships and Health featuring prominantly when in reality persistent ATTENTION to not having enough of any of it guarantees it will continue ...

Chill out

It`s the only way to Live Very Happy
