    It’s not that I don’t like watching smaller koi grow on, it’s how best to feed when you have fish over 5 years old in the same pond that’s the problem.Feeding high protein growth food to Yonsai and beyond causes fat to accumulate round their organs and is really not good for them. So whatever you feed is a compromise and suits neither age group very well in the end.

    Morning all,
    Agree with feline... buy fish that you personally like is best... you want to enjoy them.
    I've just purchased some more Adam Byer koi 6 -8 inch....
    I did this via a video call which worked out brilliant!
    Adam and Amanda were very patient as I chose which ones I wanted out of their tanks.
    This is my second purchase this year as I was so pleased with the quality of the koi...
    Good luck to those taking part

  8. Thanks Ajm, paulbaines, samp09 Thanked / Liked this Post
