All types of ProBites are tailor made for a specific season and the according pond temperature.

There is ProBites Spring-Autumn for the springtime and autumn months, ProBites Summer, ProBites Summer-Mix and ProBites Chlorella for the summer months, ProBites Winter-Care for the cold winter months and our ProBites Recovery is a specially developed koi food that actively contributes to a speedy recovery of koi.

Look around to find the type of ProBites that suits you the most and also consider feeding our sinking pellet range. Koi are build to find their food mainly on the bottom. Feeding them sinking food is therefore the most natural way.

ProBites Spring-Autumn is especially suitable for slightly lower water temperatures. It is highly digestible and produces little solid wastes. This serves to reduce the load on the bio-filtration and creates a balance between the food consumed and the capacity of the bio film in the filter. This stabilizes the water values and prevents the formation of excess ammonia and nitrite peaks in the pond water. ProBites Spring-Autumn is especially suitable for preparing for the approaching growth season or winding down in the approach to winter.

Suitable for water temperatures of 50-59 F (10-15 C).

ProBites Summer is the growth feed of choice.
The optimal protein/fat balance provides for extra energy requirements and the fast conversion to muscles tissue when fed to koi. At the same time the extra calcium in ProBites Summer strengthens the skeleton and therefore helps support increased body mass and length. The wealth of minerals and vitamins stimulates a healthy slime coat and improves the skin quality in general. The addition of our Concentrated Colour Formula improves the red (hi), black (sumi), and even white (shiro) pigmentation.

Suitable for water temperatures of 59+ F (15+ C) and higher.

ProBites Summer-Mix is a very popular combination of ProBites Summer with ProBites Color-Boost. Growth and extra color support in one handy supermix.

Do you have koi that needs a little help with coloration? Than ProBites Summer-Mix is an excellent choice.

The optimal protein/fat balance of this mix supports the increased energy demands needed for conversion to muscle mass and rapid growth. Fortified with extra calcium, this mix enhances skeletal structure needed to support muscle mass and linear growth. The multitude of vitamins and minerals stimulates slime cell production and improves the general condition of the skin. The presence of our Concentrated Color Formula™ supports the pigment cells and thereby improves Red (Hi) Black (Sumi) as well as the White (Shiro).

Suitable for water temperatures of 59+ F (15+ C) and higher.

ProBites Chlorella is a new generation koi food originally developed for breeders and dealers. The emphasis is on growth, improvement of skin quality and mucus layer and intensive mild support of coloration. Especially indoors! This is achieved by using a mix of high-quality body identical proteins in combination with Chlorella.

Chlorella contains up to 5 percent chlorophyll. Chlorophyll strengthens the intestines, cleanses the blood and has antibacterial and antifungal properties. The Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) improves the ability to repair tissues and has a beneficial effect on the intestinal flora. Thanks to the high content of chlorophyll, Chlorella facilitates the digestion of nutrients such as proteins and inhibits the growth of unwanted bacteria.

Chlorella makes the blood more powerful; it helps to maintain calcium levels and improves the absorption of iron which is involved in the transport of oxygen in the blood.

Chlorella strengthens the immune system and supports recovery after illness and medication. Another unique feature of our koi food is the sole use of slow carbohydrates with very low sugar levels. This helps to prevent high blood sugar levels, fatty deposits in muscles and organs, and prevents liver diseases. The pellets contain only the best cold pressed oils and lipids and are completely free of colorants, fragrances, additives or preservatives.

The high-quality body identical proteins in ProBites Chlorella are very well utilised and result in very good growth. The fresh Chlorella, pure Kelp and Montmorillonite clay, provide a generous supply of minerals and trace elements that gives koi a beautiful shine, intense colours and a crystal-clear mucus layer.

Suitable for water temperatures of 59+ F (15+ C).

ProBites Color-Boost is the most powerful color enhancing feed in the ProBites™ range and contains high levels of our Concentrated Color Formula™. This feed is highly suitable for koi show prep or for koi that get little sunlight. ProBites Color-Boost is best feed for short periods in the run up to a koi show or combined with ProBites Summer, should extra pigment forming be desired. We advise that exclusive use of ProBites Color-Boost be limited to a period of no more than 6-8 weeks in order to prevent over saturation of the pigment cells.

Suitable for water temperatures of 59+ F (15+ C).

ProBites Winter-Care represents a break through in koi food for low water temperatures.
The naturally available food sources for carp in the months of winter inspired us to develop a balanced and easily digestible feed that will deliver koi from the winter period in top condition. By feeding ProBites Winter-Care, your koi will emerge from the winter retaining a healthy weight, an optimal immune system and a protective slime coat in tip top condition. ProBites Winter-Care contains very high quality “body identical proteins”, Glucosamine (the most powerful aquatic anti-inflammatory available), and top quality cold pressed oils and fats. The low sugar levels also prevent the build up of fatty deposits during the inactive months of winter.

Suitable for water temperatures of 50-43 F (10-6 C).

Do NOT feed Koi below 43 F water temperature!

ProBites Recovery is a specially developed koi food that actively contributes to a speedy recovery of koi. This includes recovery from transportation stress, medication, wounds, medical intervention, bacterial- and parasitic diseases etc. The attractiveness of ProBites Recovery activates koi and stimulates their appetite. This way ProBites Recovery promotes weakened koi to quickly start feeding again. This enables them to gain all essential nutrients needed to recover quickly and build up their natural immune system. ProBites Recovery is also the ideal food for koi that come out of winter in bad condition.

ProBites Recovery is enriched with Glucosamine, very pure Propolis, Garlic powder and contains extra vitamin A and C. ProBites Recovery supports recovery from within, contains anti inflammatory ingredients, promotes skin repair and helps to quickly build up a koi's natural defense system.

Feed ProBites Recovery preferably at water temperatures of 50 F (10 C). If needed from 43 F (6 C). Feed daily until the koi are back in good condition. You can securely finish the bag or you can switch to feed one of the other food types from the ProBites range.

Why feeding sinking food?

Koi will eat very calm and fearless when feeding from the bottom. Due to this tranquility and safety, as well as their optimum body position relative to the food on the bottom, their uptake and processing of food is optimal.
In every pond there are always one or more nervous, skittish Koi whose anxious eating behavior will negatively influence the other koi in the pond as well.
This makes a meal on the surface a nervous and hectic event. Not very conducive to a quiet group meal or optimal digestion.

It is that peace and the lack of food envy plus the ideal posture to sinking feed, which ensures optimum feed intake and processing. You don't need to feed sinking food every time. Once a day is just fine. Preferably during the day, because in the early morning hours, at dusk or in the night, Koi will eat a lot calmer anyway. Naturally, these are the moments of the day when they are least at risk from natural predators.

Feeding ProBites Chlorella Sinking has several advantages.
The food is optimally processed and digested in peace and without food envy. This gives you a high return on the offered food.
Young and often shy Koi, but also older ones that are fearful and cautious eaters, often unnoticed get much food shortage. These kind of Koi, often have to live on scraps or stray pellets only and remain naturally timid and fearful fish which by their nature not only receive too little food, but by their shyness, negatively affects the other Koi as well. These Koi benefit tremendously from ProBites Chlorella Sinking and will almost always abandon their timid eating behavior directly.

Another advantage is that if you spread ProBites Chlorella Sinking across the pond, you ensure that the Koi, by their search and associated eddies, keep the pond bottom clean. Small spots of dirt or feces end up in the bottom drain(s) much faster.

ProBites Spring-Autumn Sinking is especially suitable for slightly lower water temperatures. It is highly digestible and produces little solid wastes. This serves to reduce the load on the bio-filtration and creates a balance between the food consumed and the capacity of the bio film in the filter.

ProBites Spring-Autumn Sinking is especially suitable for preparing for the approaching growth season or winding down in the approach to winter.
