Koi will eat practically anything humans will eat. They are classified as "omnivores" which means they wil eat foods which are derived from plants and animals. It is important to make sure your koi get fed a daily diet that is "well balanced". The Microbe-Lift Legacy 7-Day Balanced Feeding System is prepared to provide the highest level of all required nutrients. All six nutrients are formulated into all Microbe-Lift Koi & Goldfish Foods.
There are proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water (moisture content). These nutrients provide your koi with body heat, energy, growth material and strengthen their immune system Every koi has its own nutrient requirements due to its individual size, sex, environments and genetic make-up. Koi are ravenous feeders. They will consume a lot of food in short periods. Koi have no stomach so while we say it is important to feed them at least twice a day, morning and evening, smaller feedings more often is the more preferred method.
Legacy Koi and Goldfish Food is a scientific diet for fish. Legacy foods are made by the extrusion process - not pelleting. During extrusion, the cell walls of the organic substances contained in the food are disintegrated under pressure. The nutrients hidden in these cells are thus easily accessible for digesting agents, resulting in much higher digestibility in comparison with pelleted or flaked food. Additionally, the Legacy foods have an extremely low phosphorous content. This keeps fish waste to a minimum and helps to ensure superior water quality.
