Never see it before. For 5kg sinking. The price is more expensive than Saki Hikari hi-grow and Sakai wheatgerm but cheaper than FD primo plus.

Did a search but nothing much appears except that Summer is selling them.

Yes, it is from Summer, but not sure it is ok. I am using Saki Hikari Growth floating but their are shy kois not eating. Furthermore, i find that the Saki growth pallets got a bad smell after fish makan, so Want to change to sinking and brand.

Any recommendations? I need to bulk up the kois.

The smell from the pond water or from the bag of koi food.

Smell from the pond water it mean time to clean the filter media and chamber.

Smell is from the food after feeding. When I use Saki Hikari color food, okie no smell. But i stop the colour food cos it is turning the koi shiro a bit yellowish.

The Saki growth itself doesn't smell good also.

Saki Hikari hi-grow pro-biotics has sinking too. I am currently using it but finishing soon. No smell except that it can a bit oily (ok if you have surface skimmer) and may stain (a bit yellowish) if fed heavily.

Will be changing back to Sakai Wheatgerm sinking which I had used before. Water is clear, no smell and not oily. Better in bulking up kois.

FD Primo Plus has sinking too and is also very good like Sakai and koi grows fast. But price is expensive for long term use.

Sakai colour, Saki Hikari colour also has sinking.

End of the day is you must know where to get them.

Try one packet of FD Primo Plus....many bros swear by it to bulk up kois in a short time. But can't do long term due to price....
