      So I have been using the 45% food and so far the fish seem to enjoy it very much . Haven't noticed any excess waste in my Rdf nor water quality concerns . So all good things to report so far. Ill keep posting updates.

      Nijikawa trial

      We have been feeding this feed for a short period now at our store and like what we see.
      Feedings are in a tank with about 400 Tosai in it and we have seen some good bulking up. The feedings have been twice a day.

      Ken Liu from Barstow koi farm who has brought this food to the market is a close friend of ours and has no impact on our use of the feed but because of our friendship I wanted to shed a little light on how Nijikawa came about.

      Many moons ago a man "Mr. Liu" from China moved to the desert of California to start breeding koi. This was Kens father. Due to the high cost of feed and the extreme elements of the desert Mr. Liu started making his own feed for the farm because this was more cost effective and the fish needed to be hardy. So for years now Ken has been using his fathers recipe and perfecting it. This is now the feed we are calling Nijikawa.

      Myself I cant imagine how labor intensive it would be to make feed by hand for a whole farm.

      Mr Ken Liu at Barstow Koi Farm gave me sample bags to test for my koi. It's been 2 weeks since I started feeding Nijikawa and my koi really like the food. Feeding 3 times a day. Starting to notice changes to their body. Not only bulking but their skin looks better. Water quality is better and don't see much waste. Looking forward after a couple of months feeding Nijikawa. Update to follow.

      Update: After feeding Nijikawa for a month and half, I was very impressed with the progress of my koi. They grew 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch and their body is thicker. The most noticeable change is the skin quality. The white base really stands out. Two weeks ago, I brought 9 of my koi's to the Bakersfield Koi Show. Fellow koi hobbyists were very impressed with the quality of my koi's; especially their skin. Most of my koi's came home with the major awards. The future looks promising with the help of Nijikawa.

      I would tend to agree I have noticed now after a 6 week period there is a undisputable sheen and luster that was not there previously . Almost like it enhances it's skin on even the highest quality koi . I am quite pleased to date .

      Hey, I'll endorse it. Used Four Seasons all year, Koi seem to like it and I've seen nice growth. Will use Growth next year.

      Haven't noticed any difference from previous brands. Actually just got the Growth last week and started using it (yea I know it's late in the season), the herd seem to like it also.

      I've been feeding growth all summer and noted there was very little waste in my sieve and growth has been great.

      Been using Nijikawa Growth since May-June. Very happy with it in the pond. Koi can't seem to get enough of it. Water quality has stayed very good according to tests and the water has stayed clear. I'm impressed with in!

      I decided to try using it in my 240 gallon predator tank due to the high animal based protein content of the "Growth". Hikari Massivore Delight and Hikari floating Arowana sticks always made the water STINK when fed in any meaningful amount (haven't used activated carbon in my filters in ages). Not good in the house and not conducive to a happy wife! Since using Nijikawa Growth I've noticed my carnivorous fish love to eat it, I can feed in larger amounts, I can feed more times a day, water quality stays much better, and it doesn't stink! That was more of a testament to me of it's positive effect on water quality than the benefits in the pond.

      I'm afraid the food might turn your monster fish into friendly koi.
