    I have koi fry from last year that went through the winter in an outdoor pond. They’re still smaller than they should be, and I’d like them to get big enough to give away by the end of this summer/upcoming fall. I was wondering what I should feed them to help their growth?

    What we do is we just buy regular koi food from the pet shop and feed them everyday. If your pond has algae then you dont need to feed everyday as they will eat the algae. This alone made our fish grow up to one foot now

    My old 75 gal. from years ago had a few koi, and if I had any now, I'd likely feed 'em Fluval Bug bites and Repashy Super Gold food, as Repashy is my bread & butter and primary go-to food. It's really really good and high quality stuff, you should try it! I buy nothing much else other than those two foods.

    I know this is a little late, but I was looking back at this thread since I forgot which foods you suggested. When I looked up the Fluval Bug Bites, I noticed there's a few different kids. I'm assuming you would feed koi the goldfish formula, correct?

    Thank you again!
