Currently feeding mostly NT labs medikoi wheatgerm (21% protein) with a pinch of OSW mixed in to get them having a taste of it again although my pond is at 12.7 when I last checked. I am also feeding a small amount anyway, I would say if I put it in a mug, it would not even cover the whole bottom without plenty of gaps.
    I am at 20 now so may just go with top koi then. Cheers

    Finely got some topkoi from Feeds for you. But must say, absolutely S**t coms. I emailed them asking when they will be getting there next delivery of Topkoi in, and didn't get any reply. A week later I phoned them and they said they will have to find out and let me know, so i gave them my email addy and they still didn't reply. So went back on there website Friday and they had some in stock, so ordered 15kg and received it Tuesday, very happy with the quick delivery, but pissed off with there coms. They only had 10 bags in as well, so if anybody want's some they better get in there quick.

    Iíve used osw 3mm last year and found it really good. Will carry on using it this year maybe with some top koi mixed over the summer. I think itís really priced and doesnít produce to much waste and doesnít stain the water to bad

    Been feeding mine OSW 6mm and Top Koi 3mm, don't think they're fussed on the smaller pellet though. May order 5kg of Top Koi 6mm, trouble is I've plenty of grub here so, maybe better to use most of that up first, I get carried away ordering stuff

    I have been using JPD shogun and recently shori but just want to give the coppens a fair go with it being made in the same place and far cheaper

    I got the AllTech Coppens KOI Mix OSW 6mm last Sept & the fish have always faired well on the mix over winter I went over to using a KockneyKoi wheatgerm winter food (sinking) down to 6c but over the last few weeks have been mixing more & more OSW into their feed & have always been happy with the small amount of waste in the pond... I'm currently thinking of getting some Staple & Health to mix for the summer, has anyone got any feedback on these? I also have a decent amount of OSW left so might even mix all together!

    *(Ps I see several have mentioned where this can be purchased, if they not enough some decent deals on eBay).
