Dainichi All-SEASON Koi Food   Go to Amazon - Dainichi Koi Food!

ALL-SEASON is an excellent year-round source of easily assimilated
marine and vegetable proteins. The generous portion of marine
proteins promotes rapid growth, while the high vegetable content
ensures quick and easy digestion in all temperatures.
In addition, the shrimp and spirulina enable ALL-SEASON to perform
very well in maintaining vibrant colors of all koi varieties.
This formula can be used in conjunction with all other Dainichi Koi
Foods, however, it is especially beneficial during cooler weather when
the koi’s metaboloism is slower.
A two-step application of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins
C & E, ensure that the luster, sheen and whites of your koi are always at
their best. As in all other Dainichi koi foods, ALL-SEASON contains
calcium montmorillonite clay to simulate the natural ingestion of
mineral particles and to bind and neutralize metabolic toxins. Raw,
fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes and garlic ensure that the fish
are healthy and free of internal parasites. Furthermore, the scouring action of the clay enhances a continued rejuvenation of the digestive tract, which in turn ensures a maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. With only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source
of vitamins E and B), ALL -SEASON keeps the body conformation of all koi in a constant show-ready condition. As an addidional benefit, the low waste production by koi, helps keeps the dissolved
organics levels low in your pond, making it an invaluable aid in eliminating algal blooms.

Ingredients

White fish meal, wheat germ,whole wheat flour, krill, soybean meal, brewer’s yeast, powdered milk, calcium montmorillonite clay, spirulina vitamin mix, mineral mix, , garlic, protease and natural gum.

Guaranteed Analysis

Min.crude protein 39%
Min. crude fat 4%
Max. crude fiber 4%
Max. moisture 9%
Max. ash 9%

Usage

Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. All Dainichi foods have low levels of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract and to maintain a lean show-ready body conformation.
ALL -SEASON is a top performer in any climate but is especially well suited for use in northern
climates, cooler weather, and during late fall, winter and early spring seasons. This formula can be used at any time as long as the water temperature is above 50° F.
To increase the growth rate of koi, this formula should be supplemented with GROWTH PLUS.
Maximum color can be achieved by supplementing with PREMIUM or COLOR INTENSIFIER.

The unique properties of Dainichi’s encapsulation process enables us to apply the spirulina and the vitamins (especially vitamin C), in their raw, uncooked state which produces exceptionally deep reds (hi) and bright whites. A higher proportion of vegetable proteins ensures a fast rate of digestion. This is an important feature during cold weather where a cold spell can drop the water temperature to a level where the metabolic rete of the fish drops to a virtual stand-still.

Dainichi GROWTH PLUS Koi Food   Go to Amazon - Dainichi Koi Food!

GROWTH PLUS is our specialty growth formula. Formulated with
unprecedented amounts of Antarctic krill, shrimp and white fish meal,
this formula’s main objective is to produce a maximum growth and
superior body conformation. With the exception of the readily
convertable carotenoids from the krill and shrimp, there are no other
color enhancers added to impair the unmatched growth performance .
Koi convert the nutrients from food much more effectively into size
when they don’t expend valuable energy on putting on color.
A two-step application of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins
C & E, ensure that the luster, sheen and whites of your koi are always
at their best. As in all other Dainichi koi foods, GROWTH PLUS contains
calcium montmorillonite clay to simulate the natural ingestion of
mineral particles and to bind and neutralize metabolic toxins. Raw,
fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes and garlic ensure that the fish
are healthy and free of internal parasites. Furthermore, the scouring
action of the clay enhances a continued rejuvenation of the digestive
tract, which in turn ensures a maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. With only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source of vitamins E and B), GROWTH PLUS keeps the body conformation of all koi in a constant show-ready condition. As an additional benefit, the low waste production by koi, helps keeps the dissolved organics levels low in your pond, making it an invaluable aid in eliminating algal blooms.

Ingredients

White fish meal, wheat flour, krill, shrimp, wheat germ, soybean meal, calcium montmorillonite clay, brewer’s dried yeast, powdered milk, vitamin mix, mineral mix, garlic, protease and natural gum.

Guaranteed Analysis

Min.crude protein 44%
Min. crude fat 5%
Max. crude fiber 5%
Max. moisture 9%
Max. ash 9%

Usage

This is not a ‘color food’.
Color foods are metabolically expensive, meaning that koi expend valuable energy into coloring-up instead of converting the energy into increased body mass. The high levels of carotenoids present in the shrimp and krill produce great reds (hi), however, for deeper magenta tone red and blue colors, this formula should be supplemented with one of our spirulina containing formulas such as PREMIUM or COLOR INTENSIFIER.
Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. All Dainichi foods have low levels of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract and to maintain a lean show-ready body conformation.
GROWTH PLUS is a growth promoter without equal in any climate, but is especially valuable for use in northern climates, where the peak growth season is relatively short. This formula can be used at any time as long as the water temperature is above 60°-65° F for extended periods of time.

Dainichi PREMIUMS Koi Food    Go to Amazon - Dainichi Koi Food!

PREMIUM is our over-all most popular koi food. Ideal food for keeping
all koi in show quality condition, this high performance formula
provides your fish with a perfect balance of both growth and color.
PREMIUM can be used alone or in conjunction with other formulas
such as GROWTH PLUS, ALL-SEASON or PRIMARY.
Featuring five sources of protein, of which spirulina, krill, and shrimp
are also color enhancing, this formula is an all-time favorite with
serious hobbyists and many top Japanese koi breeders and koi
connoissuers. Dainichi’s unique two-step application of vitamins and
minerals, especially vitamins C & E ensures that luster, sheen and
whites of the koi are at their best.
Like all Dainichi foods, PREMIUM contains calcium montmorillonite clay
to simulate the natural ingestion of mineral particles and to bind and
neutralize metabolic toxins. Raw, fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes
and garlic ensure that the fish are healthy and free of internal parasites.
Furthermore, the scouring action of the clay enhances continued
rejuvenation of the digestive tract which ensures a maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. With only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source of vitamin E and B), PREMIUM keeps the body conformation of all koi in a constant show-ready condition.

Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. All Dainichi foods have low levels of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract and to maintain a lean show-ready body conformation. There is no need for other spirulina-containing color food (like COLOR IMTENSIFIER) to be used in conjunction with PREMIUM. Heavy feeding using both of these color formulas may result in the whites of the koi turning pink, requiring a switch to either PRIMARY, ALL-SEASON or GROWTH PLUS until the whites return back to their normal shade.

The PREMIUM formula provides a continuation of good care and pond management practiced by the breeders themselves. The high content of quality marine proteins such as fish meal, shrimp and krill combined with a low amount of starch, produces a diet that is high in protein (42%) and also exceptionally nutritious. Digestibility is so complete that dissolved organic matter in the water is reduced to levels inhospitable to algae blooms even under the full exposure to sun.
The unique properties of Dainichi’s encapsulation process enables us to apply the spirulina and the vitamins (especially vitamin C), in their raw, uncooked state which produces exceptionally deep reds (hi) and bright whites.

Dainichi COLOR INTENSIFIER Koi Food    Go to Amazon - Dainichi Koi Food!

COLOR INTENSIFIER is our most potent color enhancing koi formula.
It is heavily concentrated with pure cultured spirulina and Antarctic krill.
Our exclusive encapsulation process provides color enhancement
not possible with the conventional production methods. The result
of this unique feature is that the color enhancers and other nutritive
ingredients are in their raw, un-cooked state making them unequally
potent. As an added benefit, this two-step application of vitamins
and minerals, especially vitamins C & E, ensure that the luster,
sheen and whites of your koi are always at their best.
As in all other Dainichi koi foods, COLOR INTENSIFIER contains
calcium montmorillonite clay to simulate the natural ingestion of
mineral particles and to bind and neutralize metabolic toxins. Raw,
fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes and garlic ensure that the
koi are healthy and free of internal parasites. Furthermore, the
scouring action of the clay enhances a continued rejuvenation of the
digestive tract, which in turn ensures a maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. With only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source of vitamins E and B),
COLOR INTENSIFIER keeps the body conformation of all koi in a constant show-ready condition. As an additional benefit, the low waste production by koi, helps keeps the dissolved organics levels low in your pond, making it an invaluable aid in eliminating algal blooms.

Ingredients

White fish meal, wheat germ, wheat flour, krill, soybean meal, spirulina, brewer’s yeast, powdered milk, calcium montmorillonite clay, vitamin mix, mineral mix, garlic, protease and natural gum.

Guaranteed Analysis

Min.crude protein 41%
Min. crude fat 4%
Max. crude fiber 5%
Max. moisture 9%
Max. ash 9%

Usage

Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. All Dainichi foods have low levels of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract and to maintain a lean show-ready body conformation.
COLOR INTENSIFIER is recommended for use during peak activity months when water temperature is above 60°-65° F. This is a fast color formula. Maximum color is usually achieved after 4 – 6 weeks of use. There are no ill effects from continuous use, however, prolonged periods of use and/or very heavy feedings can result with the whites of koi turning slightly pink. This guideline of course, applies only to koi with white coloration. In such instance it is advisable to reduce the amount of COLOR INTENSIFIER being fed and/or a switch to any of our other formulas, with the exception of PREMIUM, which also has color enhancing properties. If the speed at which color is brought up is not a consideration, the exact same color brightness and intensity can be achieved with more control through a regular use of the PREMIUM formula.
COLOR INTENSIFIER does not contain any astaxanthin or other concentrated pigment additives which often turn the whites of koi a dirty yellow color. However, if the whites of the koi were to turn a pink hue from too much spirulina intake, koi keepers can take comfort in knowing that the clean, bright, white color can return in about two weeks, whereas the yellowed whites produced by other means can remain dingy for a number of weeks.
To maximize both color and growth rate, this formula can be used with our krill food, GROWTH PLUS.
A ratio of one part color food to 2-3 parts growth food produces very good results.
Price conscious hobbyists can use a similar ratio of COLOR INTENSIFIER to PRIMARY or ALL-SEASON formulas to maintain an economic yet still a first rate feeding program.

The unique properties of Dainichi’s encapsulation process enables us to apply the spirulina and the vitamins (especially vitamin C), in their raw, uncooked state which produces exceptionally deep reds (hi) and bright whites. This group of koi clearly demonstrates the benefits of this feature. With two separate applications of vitamins, the sheen and brightness of the whites is exceptional. Likewise, the raw, un-cooked spirulina in the coating produces deep, long lived red.
