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.

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 Summer 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 Summer Sinking™ and will almost always abandon their timid eating behaviour directly.

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