Updated on May 4, 2011

Koi Food and Feeding made easy

This hub on koi food is purely dedicated to fish breeding hobbyists, particularly koi fish breeding. Koi is one of the excellent species in fishes which can be grown in aquariums and especially Kids just love them. koi, being a good ornamental fish, requires more than just a feeding method to keep it alive and active through the lifetime. Besides considering it as a simple large gold fish, it requires proper dietary to keep your favorite pet all day happy.

It is important to note that Japanese Koi which emerged as a separate class of demand makes koi care a serious concern for fish breeding hobbyists. You might have Shoi koi Impact which is a dedicated food to keep its beauty factors like color enhancement and more.

Give the food Koi Loves....

Koi falls under the category of omnivorous fishes. That simply means it feeds on plant as well as animal matter. Picking the right kind of food and proportion is direly needed for small scale or large scale koi breeding and feeding. Even though gold fish foods are available, it is highly recommended to feed them special koi foods to keep it healthy.

Now another thing you have to remember is about koi food combination. Even though separate koi class food are available, they need a kind of combination particularly if you are hand feeding your kois. So Quality koi food should be the foremost thing you have to take into consideration. The one brand I mentioned above is such thing which comes with a great combination of quality matters as well as in definite proportion. So you have to just follow the correct dietary methods at least for the first time. So spend a little money for the quality koi fish food.

Koi Would Recongnize the Routine of taking food

I have already told you about hand feeding. If you are feeding your fish in just a fish bowl or in an aquarium, just use to put the fish food in the same are so that the fish will be able to adjust itself to the feeding style. This things are noticed by a lot of people who feed koi following such a usual routine. Remember that these minute steps even contribute to your koi's proper feeding and dietary process. Being appropriate at feeding process is a dire need for any kind of ornamental fishes and so applicable to koi.

I repeat once again that feeding koi similar to the style of godfish is not recommended. It has some separate feeding techniques ranging from small aspects (the one I mentioned above) to considerable care taking.

Created To Be Pond Fish

It is really interesting to note that in order to get the best view, growth of koi should also be that way. Actually, it gets an appealing view when looked from the top or viewed from above. So maintaining the koi shape is another serious task if you are selling or growing it. Everything is a specially graded when it comes to koi. So you must spend some extra time studying about the real care taking of koi.
