Tetra Pond Koi Sticks Review

Tetra Pond Koi Sticks are specially formulated to provide well balanced nutrition for koi as well as other pond fish. Koi Sticks are designed to float on the water’s surface so they can be quickly eaten before sinking to the bottom. This prevents ponds from being overly polluted with uneaten food while allowing you to observe these beautiful fish while eating. These sticks soften when they come in contact with the water which causes them to be digested easily by koi and other types of pond fish.

Koi fish do not have stomachs so it is impossible for them to hold food for digestion. When they ingest food, it goes straight into the intestines to be digested until it can be excreted. The digestive tracts of koi fish are not very long so it is more practical to feed less food more times a day in order for them to get all of their daily requirements. It is also very important for them to be able to absorb all of their much needed nutrition as quickly as possible before it gets expelled into their waste. Tetra Pond Koi Sticks are formulated to maximize nutrient absorption and to minimize waste output. Younger koi have even shorter intestinal tracts so they need foods that are even richer in protein than those fed to adults. Tetra brand has years of intense research backing their products so it is no coincidence that they have mastered the formula to make digestion easier for koi fish.

Koi eat both vegetable and animal matter for a balanced and nutritious diet. Tetra Pond Koi Sticks are comprised of both animal and vegetable proteins for optimal health, coloration and growth. This food is designed to keep water clean and clear of debris if the instructions are followed closely and fish are not overfed. Tetra Pond Koi Sticks are designed to be fed while the water temperatures are still above 50°F. There is a “Spring & Fall” formula of koi food that can be used during colder times where the water drops below 50°F but no lower than 39°F. This colder water stick is comprised of a higher carbohydrate and vegetable content for easier digestion.

Tetra manufactures a variety of colored Koi Sticks for all of your koi fishes’ various needs. Green Koi Sticks provide a staple diet for a well rounded diet. Red Koi Sticks utilize special color enhancers for brighter, more brilliant colors. Blue Koi Sticks provide extra protein for vitality and to promote growth. Purple Koi Sticks provide a healthy variety that includes floating food sticks and wheat germ.
