In nature, omnivores like goldfish seek out natural foods like water plants to appease their appetite. Hikari Goldfish Staple contains higher levels of plant matter including Alfalfa, Kale and Moroheiya, which naturally contains vitamins and minerals goldfish can utilize. The unique balance of this diet allows goldfish to readily absorb the nutrient mix thereby creating less waste than can negatively impact their environment.
Hikari Staple Goldfish Foods are preferred maintenance and growth diets for the daily feeding of baby goldfish and koi fry providing them the basic nutrition they require.
Feed 2-4 times daily the amount your fish will consume within a few minutes. Always remove any uneaten food after the feeding period to avoid over-feeding and the water quality issues that can result. When the water temperature is consistently below 50F (10C) or above 86F (30C), special care should be taken to avoid over-feeding as the metabolism of goldfish and fry koi can drop off precipitously. For best results when feeding while your pond or aquarium is at these water temperatures, make sure your fish are very active and your water quality has not degraded.
