The extreme silkworm content offers a supplemental food rich in natural lipids and proteins offering your koi the building blocks they require for superior “traditional” growth and “true koi” conformation. Your koi will truly enjoy this unique treat developed deep in the traditions of Japanese koi breeding experts!
Regularly monitor your temperature and adjust feedings as required, never over feed.
- Above 20°C (68°F)– Silkworm Selects™ should comprise 20% to 40% of total amount fed and be mixed with the other ®Hikari koi diets. Using this mix, feed 2 to 4 times per day the amount your fish will consume within 5 minutes.
- Below 20°C (68°F)– We strongly recommend using Silkworm Selects™ primarily as a treat comprising no more than 10% of the total amount fed. For colder temperatures we recommend ®Hikari Wheat-Germ.

All koi who need body building treat.
