Probiotics and Prebiotics

Probiotics and Prebiotics can restore the balance of bacteria in the digestive tract. Probiotics contain beneficial bacteria that can be found naturally in various foods. When probiotics are consumed, these healthy bacteria will migrate to the intestinal tract. Common strains include Lactobacillis and Bifidobacterium families of bacteria. Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that make their way through the digestive system and help good bacteria grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial bacteria healthy. Prebiotics that feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut mostly come from carbohydrate fibres called oligosaccharides. These are not digested, so the oligosaccharides remain in the digestive tract and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria. Sources of oligosaccharides include fruits, legumes, and whole grains. Fructo-oligosaccharides may be taken as a supplement or added to foods. Yogurt made with bifidobacteria contain oligosaccharides. Probiotic bacteria like lactobacilli are naturally found in fermented foods like sauerkraut and yogurt. Some foods will have added probiotics as healthy nutritional ingredients, which will be evident on the label.

 

Why are we telling you all this? Simply because an increasing number of Koi foods listed below are now including probiotics and prebiotic ingredients. Look for EA koi foods, foods by Japan Pet design, and Saki Hikari below

KiyoMizu Koi Foods

KIYOMIZU Junior, Adult and Jumbo formulae.

 

JUNIOR - 4.5 mm for Koi up to 35 cm, ADULT - 6 mm for Koi from 35-60 cm, JUMBO - 8 mm for Koi from 60 cm.

 

KiyoMizu is the first food to be developed specifically to target Koi of different ages, from Young Koi, through to Adult Koi and on to older and possibly Jumbo Koi becuase it can be proven that different stages in life require a different balance of protiens, vitamins and mineral content.

 

Young Koi need a good start in life if they are to grow into magnificent Jumbo Koi. They need easily digestible proteins to grow. They also need vitamins and minerals to develop a good body and bone structure. Balanced, health-supporting and immunity-boosting ingredients are also required. Kiyomizu Junior provides exactly what young Koi need.

 

Adult Koi grow more slowly and start to develop their body shape and colour. It is therefore essential to change their feed, making sure they are given the ingredients they need for this stage of life. Kiyomizu Adult contains prebiotics and probiotics to strengthen the health and vitality of Koi.

 

The size of Kiyomizu pellets is designed to suit the ‘target audience’. If the pond contains Koi of different sizes, we recommend starting with the largest pellets and waiting until the bigger Koi have started feeding before introducing the smaller pellets. Feed once to three times a day.

 

Do not feed the fish more than they eat in five minutes. Remove any uneaten feed.

Class - staple medium protein food

 

 

 

Pack Size Price
Junior 7kg £72.50
Adult 7kg £72.50
Jumbo 7kg £72.50

Jumbo Koi need to maintain and improve their body shape and colour. In addition, they can live to an old age and therefore have to remain healthy. Giving them large amounts of protein does not make them grow more quickly. In fact, it has the exact opposite effect. Jumbo Koi need smaller amounts of very easily digestible proteins of the highest quality. Combined with optimum support for their health and colour, it is possible that they reach their maximum genetically determined length and old age.

 

The Koi hobby is in continuous development thanks to improved knowledge about feed, water quality and pond design. Over the past few decades, many types of Koi feed have been developed, including special food for growth & extra growth, colour, health & probiotics, winter (wheat germ) etc.

 

It is usual for lots of domestic animals such as puppies and kittens to be given special food. As animals grow into adults and later in life, when they grow older, their nutritional requirements change. Each stage of life requires a different kind of food to ensure good health and a vital old age. This is no different with Koi.

 

For this reason, Kiyomizu offers a choice of three balanced formulas that provide Koi with exactly what they need at every stage of their lives. Or, perhaps even more importantly, they are prevented from getting too much of the nutrients that do more harm than good at certain stages of their lives. Feeding Koi according to their age-related needs also optimises the water quality. Although good quality feed is extremely important, water quality is equally important to health and growth.

 

 KiyoMizu

 

 

Kiyomizu contains special ingredients that promote optimum digestion and absorption of vital nutrients. The composition of Kiyomizu helps maintain water quality and reduce organic waste. In developing Kiyomizu, the product was built from scratch around this concept using our existing knowledge of Koi and the best ingredients currently available to provide Koi with exactly the right blend required at their age. The latest and most innovative developments have been deployed in the manufacture of our feed, resulting in this new standard in Koi nutrition.

 

Kiyomizu consists of: -BIO-MOS® (mannan oligosaccharides) -organic trace elements -astaxanthin -easily digestible protein -prebiotics and probiotics -organically bonded vitamins and minerals -special algae products - essential for the production of Omega 3 -Montmorillonite clay (bentonite) -yeast extracts -ingredients to improve digestion

 

When the water temperature is less than 10ºC, Koi have a reduced appetite and slow digestion and should be fed accordingly.

Yamatonishiki is another excellent value for money modern koi food, made in Japan, which contains immuno boosters and Astaxanthin for colour enhancement of both red (Hi) and white (Shiro) colouration.

hikari hi growth


Developed to reduce or eliminate many of the problems associated with keeping and breeding Koi, Saki-Hikari is the worlds first and still most advanced probiotic Koi diet. The result of many years of research, development and extensive experience with leading Japanese Nishikigoi breeders, Saki-Hikari is now available to hobbyists worldwide.

 

 The secret of Saki Hikari.

 

All of the Saki-Hikari diets include a beneficial living bacteria named the Hikari germ. This is a strain of Bacillus bacteria which proliferates in the Koi's intestine and brings many benefits. The result is extraordinary digestion, a consistent increased rate of growth, less pollution of the pond water and healthier Koi. The Hikari germ are a form of probiotics, the benefits of which are well documented in the human diet (e.g. Yoghurt and Yakult) as well as in livestock breeding and aquaculture.

 

The Hikari germ process.

 

The Hikari germ works in four stages. First when a diet containing the Hikari germ is fed, the bacteria breed in the intestine. Secondly the Hikari germ creates increased levels of digestive enzymes, which significantly improve the Koi's ability to digest the food, and thereby utilising more or the beneficial content of the food, and causing less solid waste. Thirdly, because the Hikari germ is probiotic, these friendly bacteria out compete any 'bad bacteria' present for a food source, and their population naturally decreases. Lastly, less waste produced in the digestive process means less pollution in the pond, and therefore better, more consistent water quality. Also the probiotic actions of the Hikari germ continue to be of benefit, even when expelled by the Koi and continue to help break down waste products and organic sludge in the pond.The Four Formulae

Saki Hikari is available as a Balance diet, a Colour diet, a Growth diet and a Multi season diet. All the diets contain the Hikari germ, wheat germ inner kernel, Spirulina and many important vitamins. Guaranteed analysis minimum 40% crude protein, between 6 and 9% crude fat, 1% crude fibre, 10% moisture and between 15 and 17% crude ash.

Owing to the probiotic nature of these Koi foods, they can safely be given at any water temperatures.

Automatic Koi Feeders

Automated fish feeders have been in use now for some time and have always proved useful where koi owners are on holiday or even just at work, then an Automatic Feeder is a must to ensure that your koi are fed little and often - i.e. the correct way, rather than feeding more heavily once or twice per day. This will substantially reduce waste produced by uneaten and poorly digested food. This in turn aids filter performance and helps keep water in a better condition. In addition your Koi will grow better and overall you will use less food.

 

 

 

 

Kamihata Solar feeder

The Kamihata Solar Koi feeder is the Rolls Royce of Koi feeders, made in Japan - naturally - and user by just about 100% of Japanese Koi farms up and down the country. Holds over 6kg of food, can handle a wide range of pellet sizes, feed up to 12 times per day, and every feed can be individually set for the length of time food is offered. The food is fired from the feeder, not just dropped into the water, and the angle and height of the food being ejected is also variable in order to spread the food over as wide an area as possible - this helps ensure that the Koi dont crash into each other in their efforts to get to the food. Comes complete with a 12 v rechargeable battery and becuase it is solar powered , will pretty much run forever without the need for charging. Can be bolted down for stability and is weather and splash proof with all the digital display and controller being mounted inside the lid. Very expensive but will last forever and ultra reliable and by far the best performer.
