PREMIUM SINKING is our premiere maintenance, color and growth food, extruded in a denser 5.0 mm pellet designed to sink to the bottom of the pond. Encapsulated with a unique nutritional coating, this robust blend of marine and vegetable proteins contains white fish meal, krill and spirulina as well as a complex mix of minerals, vitamins and indispensable pre-biotics. Used alone or in conjunction with our other formulas, feed as much as your fish will eat in 5-10 minutes in temperatures of 60ºF or more, 2 or more times daily.

This sinking food type is ideal for instances when some koi are either shy or not aggressive enough to compete for food at the surface. Rather than overfeeding all of the koi present with additional portions of floating food, it is advisable to simply feed an appropriate amount of sinking food after the introduction of the floating food. This way, the sinking food will by-pass the koi feeding at the surface and will sink to the bottom where the more passive koi can feed in a more leisurely manner. Of course, if there are more serious concers such as visits from predatory animals, all koi can be fed with the sinking pellet to reduce their presence at the pond surface where the are more at risk of an attack.
