    I used it for a four week period last summer and was very impressed with it. One of those products that actually lives up to its claims.
    Definitely worth using if you have Go Sanke varieties.
    7500 litres
    Filtreau combi with uv.
    Some koi

    Iím on it at the moment but only at 40% (the rest being SH growth) and Iíve really noticed the improvement of my kohaku and Sanke. Within 5 or 6 days I was surprised. First really season so I canít comment on other varieties as itís the only one Iíve used but Iíve been mega impressed.

    Also both the colour and growth actually live up to their claims about not destroying the water - I wasnít expecting that claim to be true but itís amazing.

    Hi, Thank you for the reply! As well as thickening the Benni plate on the Go-Sake varieties .Does it also improve the skin Lustre on all the Koi varieties. Love to see , nothing better than the the Olive Green Chag's , shine in the warmer waters and Sun, with a better basic food diet Such as Saki Balance.

    Dave excuse my ignorance - first proper season in my pond so Iím just copying what Iíve seen on the interwebs. I watched a YouTube video where a guy in the states did 40% June, 50% July and 60% August which is what Iím copying. Is this not recommended because of beni burning? (Which is a new one on me)?

    Any advice would (again!) be gratefully received. If it makes a difference, Iím heated to 24c (which was earlier than planned because of the health problems I had with the koi) and theyíve been on 100% growth for 6 weeks since Iíve been at 24.

    What are people thoughts on using it in a unheated pond! Wait until the temps hit 22 c. And either feed a percentage or hit them solely for a month?

    This is what I did, use the colour between 20-22 and 22-24 I switched to growth. I would use say 40% colour to 60% growth until the colour was all gone and definitely noticed a difference on go Sanke varieties

    those are not too bad feed rates for just 3 months, depends on what you are trying to achieve.
    save beni, prepare for show, just for good colours all year.

    feed rates are different, fish are all different, you can feed colour at 100% and lots do to prepare for showing fish,
    but you have to judge the koi by looking at them, and figuring out if they have had enough or when to stop/reduce.
    you might have one fish in the pond starting to go a bit over, but others not enough.
    it will come back if over done, but generally not until next season. when they have had time to bring the shiroji up over autumn/winter.
