I recently met with Mr. Chen from Nigikawa. After a long talk (about 2 hours), I have been led to believe with confidence that the Nijikawa brand food is a successful product.
We all like to hear word of mouth recommendations because that usually means that someone has used the service or product and had good results.
While I was educated the by Mr. Chen on the importance of nutrition from his koi food, I also was able to speak with several people about their experiences.
Mr. Chen informed me that he had a Koi he bought and tried his own food exclusively on the koi. The fish when he bought it was already 28" and within 3 months had grown to 33". That is pretty impressive!
Trying Nijikawa Koi Food Ourselves; how'd it go?
I wanted to try some for myself so I purchased the floating pellets. I have always believed in the power of high-quality food for my koi, so I had been using the "Sera Professional" koi food. I did see great growth and color developments, but some of my domestic koi were not growing the way I would expect from Tosai. My Japanese koi were growing but not at the rate I believed they would. Still I could see a great skin quality and color.
I have started using the Nigikawa for 3 days now and I can see a difference in the energy of the koi. They are very active and when I go out to feed they seem to be more excited than before. That is a very short time to get a reaction like that I would think.
I will update you on the results over the next two months before they slow down and winter comes upon us. As a side note people were suggesting that the water seemed to be clearer and that there was less waste in the filtration as a result of changing the food over to Nijikawa. Here is a video I found that I found:
UPDATE ON OUR FAVORITE KOI FOOD:
We now strictly use Nijikawa food! We're a proud distributor of this product, and stand behind the quality of this food. We've seen firsthand its ability to produce the growth + color results we as a koi keepers and sellers are looking for.
