The carefully balanced nutrition, vitamins and amino acids will keep your aquatic pet healthy and full of energy while helping them grow fat-deposit-free.
The feeding pattern, and thus the growth rate, of Koi depends on many factors, such as water temperature, water quality, stocking density and genetic background Koi feed most actively at temperatures in excess of 15c(59F), thus sexually immature fish can grow rapidly during the summer months when the temperature is warmer. Once Koi are mature, their growth rate slows considerably; in sexually mature fish, most of the food eaten is utilized in producing eggs or sperm in preparation for breeding.
Having a pond full of beautiful Koi fish is a source of joy and an achievement to be admired. You can now see that the shape and depth of the pond contributes greatly to the success or failure of the Koi fish.

These are the absolute highest quality Butterfly Koi that we have to offer, and are some of the highest quality long-fin Butterfly Koi in the world. Black Crappie are renowned for their excellent eating quality which makes them a highly sought after game species. Bluegill Sunfish are native to most of North America and are popular feed and sport fish. Channel Catfish are the most sought after member of the catfish family, providing excitement by striking at both bait and artificial lures. Crayfish are typically stocked in ponds and lakes as a source of feed for game fish species. Fathead Minnows provide excellent forage for most game species, averaging just 1-3 inches in length at adulthood.
Grass Carp are native to China and are one of the largest members of the minnow family, commonly reaching weights of 25 pounds or more. Rainbow Trout are the best of the trout species to stock in a pond environment due to their relative tolerance of high water temperatures and a broad range of pH levels. 1 Acre- 20 pounds fathead minnows, 300 bluegill sunfish, 200 channel catfish, and 100 largemouth bass. Provides active color enhancement helping to bring out all the natural beauty and true colors koi are known for. Floating foods allow you to easily monitor and adjust the amount of food fed to avoid over-feeding.
We are committed to offering a wide selection of medicated, color enhancing, growth stimulating and sustaining foods.


However, unlike many other vertebrates, fish continue to grow throughout their lives and it is easy for pampered Koi to reproduce and continue to grow because of their artificially high feeding rates.
Some Koi-keepers, however, who heat their pools in the winter, continue to feed their Koi throughout the year. One way is to have enough surface area of the pond to allow a natural exchange of oxygen happen between the air and the water.
The ideal Koi fish pond will have a large surface area, a deep spot for the fish to escape to from predators and heat during a hot summer day and have ample oxygen in the water. Premium Select Grade Butterfly Koi are hand-picked from our one-year old Butterfly Koi crops, then given another year to grow and mature. It is distinguished from other members of the catfish family by its forked tail and the black spots visible along its sides. Their preferred habitat consists of rocks, logs, and debris under which they can dig shallow burrows where they hide from predation. It is recommended that they be stocked on a regular basis to insure proper feed ratios for game fish.
Grass Carp have the unique ability to eat a wide variety of submerged aquatic plants making them a sought after species for overgrown ponds and lakes. Carp, which were stocked in rice paddies and raised for food, appeared to have color mutations.
They will survive in temperatures of up to 70 degrees F but beyond that they may begin to suffer as a result of oxygen deprivation. Their size, sporting qualities, and flavor, make them one of the most sought after game species in North America.
If a Koi has continued to feed during winter its rings will not be clearly defined and it will therefore be difficult to age. Channel Catfish will not muddy a pond like its cousin the Bullhead, making it preferable for stocking in those environments. Because they are not native to the area, stocking is allowed in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York by permit only. These colored Carp were crossbred to produce the multitude of colors that we see today including black, red, orange, yellow, blue and white. Males prepare the nest in preparation for spawning which consists of a 1-2 foot diameter circular area in 2-3 feet of water. Rainbow Trout have also proven to be more easily caught in ponds than Brook or Brown Trout. Perch readily spawn in lakes and ponds when the water temperature reaches 45 to 50 degrees F in several feet of water by depositing a gelatinous mass over weeds or brush.
Established ponds that have fish already living in them should be stocked more conservatively. Feed this to your koi to see the grow at and accelerated rate with great color and water quality! Minnows will school in warmer water at the edges of a pond looking for feed which primarily consists of algae and plankton. One or more females will deposit several thousand eggs and hatching occurs 8-10 days later.


Usually they are found in larger bodies of water but have been proven to grow in ponds with adequate forage fish. Spawning occurs when the water temperature reaches 65 degrees F and continues throughout the summer as many as 5 or 6 times. Only sterile or Triploid Grass Carp are permitted in these areas and are what is provided by Mid-Atlantic Stocking. Koi can tolerate temperatures ranging from 33 to 90 degrees F for short periods of time, but care should be taken during stocking to minimize rapid temperature transitions. Males will protect the fry for about 2 weeks after which time they will begin to feed on them. Traveling in schools, perch tend to stay in deeper water in daylight moving toward the shallows at night. Because they use the oxygen in the water rather rapidly it needs to be replenished all the time. Their lifespan is 7-9 years in northern states and they have been known to reach 4 pounds. Spawning will occur when the water temperature reaches 70 degrees F, usually under a log or stone, but pipe segments or cans over 8 inches in diameter can provide an artificial medium for spawning as well. Flat stones or boards which have been propped up facilitate spawning and provide cover and therefore should be added around the edge of your pond in 1-3 feet of water. Plants that Grass Carp will feed on include: Common Elodea, Coontail, Fanwart, Naiad, Curly and Leafy Pondweed, Duckweed, Muskgrass, Watermilfoil, Bladder Wart, Wild Celery and Water Stargrass. Spawning occurs in the spring but is rare in a pond environment since it requires a gravel bottom and flowing water to be successful. Spawning occurs in the spring on gravel, when the water temperature reaches 40-50 degrees F, in 1-5 feet of water. Males, usually darker in color during spawning, will pick up and deposit eggs on the underside of flat surfaces with hatching occurring in 5-6 days. When 2 inches in length, fry will begin disperse, therefore stocking at or above this size greatly increases survival rates. Perch have been known to reach 3 pounds but are more commonly caught at half a pound or less. Walleye will reach 12 to 15 inches in their third year and can live for up to 12 to 15 years in the northern United States. Fishing for Perch can be done at all times of the year and ice fishing for them is very popular. We sell the Kamloop strain of trout, which originated in British Columbia and is known for its faster growth rate and warmer water tollerance relative to native Rainbow Trout.
