This soft sinking pellet can be fed year round, and is compiled of high quality raw materials, which includes natural pigments and a unique blend of algae, all of which is designed to enhance colours, keep good body shape and encourage growth.
Vitalis Koi Pellets has great quality and sustainably sourced ingredients, which makes them attractive to koi, and easy to train them to hand feed. Spend a little time holding a palm full of pellets on a lightly clenched fist just below the water surface. Allow an odd pellet to fall out and sink encouraging the bolder fish to come forward. Once the fish realise where the food is coming from they will approach your hand and you can open your hand allowing them to feed. This may take a couple of days of patience but as soon as one fish starts to take food the others will follow suit
The smaller pellet sizes are ideal for growing on Tategoi, allowing them to achieve their full potential. Vitalis Koi Pellets are formulated to deliver superior growth rates, good body shape and enhanced natural colours. The small pellet is around 4mm in diameter, and the medium is 6mm.
Increase the amount you feed as the water temp rises, always being careful not to overfeed. The water temp and quality food will result in excellent growth rate through the summer season.
Consider when feeding:
Temp of water, at cooler times of the year reduce feeding quantities and frequency.
Never feed more than they will consume in 2 minutes, better to feed more frequently rather than bigger feeds.
Increase feeding and frequency in warmer weather to encourage growth when the fishes metabolism is at peak performance.
