Microbe-Lift Legacy Fish Food & Koi Food


Microbe-Lift Legacy Fish Food

Microbe-Lift® / Legacy foods are made by the extrusion process - not pelleting. During extrusion the cell walls of all organic substances contained in the food are disintegrated under pressure. The nutrients hidden in these cells are thus easily accessible for digesting agents, resulting in much higher digestibility in comparison with pelleted or flaked food. Additionally the legacy foods have an extremely low phosphorous content. This keeps fish waste to a minimum and helps to ensure superior water quality.


High Growth & Energy Food

With added color enhancers (Primary)

In the late spring when the warmer temperatures arrive, koi need a boost of protein for growth since they have depleted their fat reserves over the winter. In the fall, a higher protein diet is also required since pond fish need to bulk up in preparation for their winter fast. Use this feed at minimum temperature of 68° F (20° c). Pond fish really start to grow at this temperature. You can use this feed up to four times per day. Feed between 2% - 3% of the fishes' body weight per day.

Cold Weather Food (Wheat Germ)

Spring/Fall Formula, Floating Pellets (Primary)

In the cold weather spring and fall when the night-time temperature goes below 55° F (13° C) feed the Cold Weather formula. When the pond water's temperature drops, the fish requires a highly digestible cool-water diet. The cold water diet is made with lesser amounts of protein but contains wheat germ which is easily digested and also contains a higher level of fats.

The Montmorillonite Clay provides additional minerals which help provide more immunity against viruses commonly found in pond environments. Additional quantities of vitamins are also blended into this food. Montmorillonite Clay also acts as a toxin binder by neutralizing the metabolic toxins.
