Does anyone know if I can buy ready made food with garlic?
I've tried several occasions to make my own, but the minute it hits the water it disintegrates into tiny pieces. pale
I've tried binding with honey etc, but it still does that. Should I be drying it out?

Hi Stumbe

You do get food with garlic pre-mixed but not in this country.

Koi food with garlic 3312_35

Most of us use Olive oil that contains garlic. We pour a bit over the pellets and then mix it uo a bit then you must leave the pellets to suck the oil up.

After a few hours i then add honey and montmorilite clay.

You must ask Bobby for the proper recipy or you can go to this forum.

Thanks Wayne
I wish they would sell that here. I'm sure there would be a call for it.

okay I got this from one of Pieters posts.
Quote :
Bestanddele:
1kg Koi Pellets
30g Crushed Garlic
Een " Lepeltjie" Manda Nishiki met 500ml warm water (in spray bottel)
Montmorollonite klei
Indien benodig:
Terramycin poeier; 5 gram ( gewoonlik voor en na winter behandeling)
Paprika poeier; 20gram ( vir color " enhancement")

Ek meng dit so:
Gooi die pellets in 'n bak, spuit dit met die Manda Nisihiki water totdat dit redelik natterig is.
Stroei die Garlic oor die nat kos terwyl dit gemeng word.
Voeg Montmorolionite klei by tot dat die nattigheid geabsorbeer is.
Meng die hele tyd.

Terramycin en Paprika kan by gevoeg word voor dat die klei by gevoeg word. Voeg die klei altyd laaste by.

Terramycin behandelig:
Ek doen dit gewoonlik voor en na Winter: Voer vir 'n tydperk van 10 dae

Paprika:
Voer dit wanneer die water 20*c en bo is.

Sover werk die konkoksie goed!

My GinRin Ochiba Shigure het in een jaar van 88cm tot 91cm en die Yamabuki van 84cm tot 86 cm gegroei, wat baie goed vir 'n Jumbo Koi is.
Die beste groei wat ek gekry het was 'n Showa (Hosokai) 10cm in 5 maande!

PS:
Indien jy nie Manda Nishiki het nie kan SUIWER heuning verdun in warm water gebruik word om kos te benat en taai te maak

Hi Stumble

This is how I do mine and they love it:
Just leave the medicine part out

Thanks Maruis, so does that stay like putty? So I just break off pieces to feed the fish?

Yes they stay like putty and does not cloud the water. I make small round balls out of the food and feed a handful at a time. They love it but since I don't have someone at home during the day they mostly only get this treat on weekend

At first I used bread instead of clay but did not work for me, but I know many people use bread instead of clay, so maybe I did something wrong. To me the clay binds better with the pellets/vita/garlic mix than bread

Thanks Marius.
Yes, I've also tried the bread and it didn't work for me too. I've got that clay and will give it another try.
thanks for your help.

What also works, you can buy the food paste......have seen as various shops, they normally come in 1kg bags...
Take that add 30-40g of garlic, put in a bucket and mix.....

When i feed take 10 teaspoons full of teh mixed powder but in a empty container, at the pond add some pond water mix until putty like, roll into smaller balls and through into the water, they get tis in addition to their normal food.

Have to add have only been doing this for the last 7 days liek this so far works well.

You should also be able to get the Aquamaster paste food from santon aquatics. I never used it before but thats where you will get it.
