Rated 5 out of 5 by kipmartin Best I've used
I have 2 ponds and a total of 8 large koi. I had previously purchased the large bag of this product and it was not of the same quality as found in the 8 lb bags. This time, however, the large bag was exactly the same quality as the smaller bag. I was very pleased with this purchase and will purchase it again. If you have a lot of fish, you can't beat the price. The large bag keeps my fish fed well for 5-6 months.

We have several pond fish and one was swelling up but the others were fine. Our water parameters were fine. We avidly monitor our pond. After some research I determined he was most likely constipated and not diseased. I looked at all the ingredients for foods on drsfosters site and this one included a lot of good stuff plus spinach and beets which are good for constipation. After the third day his porcupine look was down to half and six days later he was mostly back to normal. Having said that, they love kibble, well, they REALLY love this kibble, like a bunch of piranhas! This is our second bag we have purchased and we were thrilled to see they have a cool version as well. We ordered it as well and will switch to it next month. Pretty stinky tho:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by lindajohn My Koi, Comet and Shubunkin love Blackwater Gold
I was hesitant to spend more on my fish, but it was recommended by a pond store owner, who I found extremely knowledgeable on feeding healthy foods to their koi. I too, wanted the healthiest fish I could get. I was not disappointed! The fish have grown, their color is vibrant, and they display healthy fish behaviors. In addition, the first two years I used it, fish spawning was very high and I had a high rate of fish survival from the new fry. I will continue to use this product and recommend to others! I also mash the pellets for my fry after they are about 1" in size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McFish This Koi Food is the Best
I have had a koi pond for over ten years and this food is the absolute best. My koi love it. While I have tried many other less expensive varieties over the years, the results achieved from using Blackwater Gold in the growth, color and health of my koi makes it well worth the extra cost.
