    A few of us visited AKA Koi Centre 2 days ago and we came across a koi food call Nobori. Bro Daniel mentioned that this food is very good for shiroji so I bought a 10kg pack for testing.. Has anyone tested this food? On the packing it states Super Wheatgerm..

    let us know the results bro, want to try... have been feeding lots of wheatgerm to my fishes and slowing down their growth to control colour and quality....

    wheatgerm also supposed to help digestion, and its with that help which actually makes the fish shed the yellowish colour of their skins. Apparently, a dealer said, that the yellow is caused by the fishes inability to digest food properly. so will try more wheatgerm before the show and see what happens...

    Bro Andy,

    I hv tried Nobori during my early stage of koi keeping. Honestly, no complaint but no obvious result too. Kois seemed to be healthy. I noticed that it did keep the shiroji white. I fed nobori and saki hikari colour. Nobori supposed to keep the shiroji white and act as wheatgerm. But cannot tahan lah as the growth was q slow with this combo.

    The good part, nobori is q cheap actually. Maybe nobori will be great for preparation for the show if you are happy with the size. Keep us update bro.

    Bro, thanks. I am now feeding 80% Nobori to
    test it's effect since it's near to the Shinkokai show. I am not too concern about growth as my fish will grow even with wheatgerms.. I used to focus too much on growth which affects the fish beni and health.. I am trying to go slow on growth lately.. I find the school of thoughts for koi keeping keeps changing even among ourselves ..
