      Regularly monitor your temperature and adjust feedings as required. Never over feed.

      Above 68°F (20°C) - Silkworm Selects should comprise 20% to 40% of total amount fed and be mixed with the other Hikari® koi diets. Using this mix, feed two to four times per day the amount your fish will consume within five minutes.

      Below 68°F (20°C) - We strongly recommend using Silkworm Selects primarily as a treat comprising no more than 10% of the total amount fed. For colder temperatures we recommend Hikari® Wheat-Germ.

      Note: Silkworm Selects contains higher levels of natural ingredients which may cause a slight change in color from one production lot to another. Rest assured because of our rigid quality standards, each package meets our superior nutritional specifications.
