Hikari Slikworm Selects 500g
From the Hikari website verbatim: – ‘cos it’s true! Also our favourite product to debunk the myth that in order to bulk your Koi you need a squillion percent protein. It’s not true. Silkworm Selects adds mass to your Koi at an unbelievable rate and it is only 31% protein…! An outstanding product.
“Hikari® Silkworm Selects™ offers your koi the highly desirable benefits of silkworm without the negative impacts common with other silkworm-type products. Our advanced production techniques and unique formulation processes have allowed us to utilize the whole silkworm pupae, with all its natural nutritional benefits, while avoiding common oxidization issues. 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!”
Note the temperature suggestions. To be honest, in South Africa we prefer to adjust these temperature to 22C. Hikari recommend that:
- 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 recomend ®Hikari Wheat-Germ.
