What is Hikari Germ™?
The Hikari Germ™ is a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms which rapidly take priority in the intestine of the koi. It works to utilize the available nutrition working to reduce that which is available to bad bacteria thereby slowing their propagation. Additionally, Saki-Hikari™ offers your pet improved nutrient utilization through more efficient assimilation. This can translate into better water quality with continued use.
Saki-Hikari® is most effective when used without interruption as a daily diet. The Hikari Germ™ a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms is a probiotic that does not remain in the intestine and is quickly discharged once feeding is discontinued. Intermittent use will not allow the Hikari Germ™ to flourish and continue to support intestinal flora.
Saki-Hikari® Multi-Season will provide desirable results when your water temperatures are consistently above 54℉(12℃). Remember, lower water temperatures dictate less feeding. Nobody knows your koi better than you do. Use the following as a guide and always avoid overfeeding. Never leave uneaten food in the pond after the feeding period.
Above 64℉(18℃) - Feed Saki-Hikari® Multi-Season two to four times daily based on the activity level of your koi. For superior results, we suggest using our other Saki-Hikari® when water temperatures are above 68℉(20℃); Color Enhancing which offers brilliant color enhancing capacity or Growth to help develop true, fat-deposit-free form.
Between 54℉(12℃) and 64℉(18℃) - Feed Saki-Hikari® Multi-Season two to four times daily based on the activity level of your koi. For best results, try to feed during the warmest part of the day.
Between 41℉(5℃) and 54℉(12℃) - Carefully regulate the amount fed based on the activity level of your koi and your pond conditions. Extra care should be taken to avoid overfeeding in this temperature range.
Below 41℉(5℃) - Stop all feeding.
