Note: The quality ingredients used in this food offer premium nutrition and high digestibility, but in some cases the pellets may not all sink as well as expected, resulting in a mixture of floating and sinking pellets. If additional sinking is required, simply soak the food in water for up to 20 minutes before feeding.
Kenzen Koi Food Primary Diet sinking food is an all-natural, no-filler diet designed to build Koi with excellent body confirmation and increased muscle mass. It includes highly digestible ingredients like herring meal and potato starch that minimize fish waste for a cleaner pond and encourage Koi growth.

The manufacturer asserts that Kenzen Koi Food can be fed down to 36°F, though the amount must be decreased as Koi activity decreases in colder temperatures. Large accumulation of fish waste is an indicator that too much food is being given and is thus wasted. Above 45°F, feed two meals per day. Between 40°F and 45°F, feed one meal per day. Between 36°F and 40°F, feed only once every 2-3 days.
However, Practical Garden Ponds recommends a more conservative approach of stopping all fish feedings below 50°F, regardless of brand.
