MICROBE-LIFT foods are made in the USA with no preservatives or food colors. Their unique formula allows fish to absorb more nutrients, creating less fish waste and algae for superior water quality.
The foods are made by the extrusion process and are easily accessible for digesting agents. They have much higher digestibility than pelleted or flaked food, which is vital for koi with no stomachs.
The beneficial bacteria inside of MICROBE-LIFT foods are key to your fish’s gut health, resulting in increased growth, health, vitality and color enhancement. These Nature’s Building Blocks produce and secrete enzymes that break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats into smaller, more easily digested nutrients. Your fish will have a totally balanced diet while achieving maximum health benefits.
MICROBE-LIFT’s high-grade koi foods consist of essential nutrients and vitamins needed to keep koi healthy. They also provide the koi with a steady source of protein, carbohydrates, and minerals that help them grow bigger and develop more vibrant colors.
These pellets promote brilliant color development and offer the animal protein and color enhancers that are needed during the summer.

Montmorillonite clay helps provide immunity against viruses found in ponds and acts as a toxin binder by neutralizing the metabolic toxins.

A WELL-BALANCED DIET:
Koi will eat almost anything humans will eat. Classified as “omnivores,” they will eat foods which are derived from plants and animals. It is important that your koi is fed a daily diet that is well balanced.
6 ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS:
Proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water are included in all MICROBE-LIFT Foods, providing your koi with body heat, energy, growth material and a strong immune system.
STABILIZED VITAMIN C:
Vitamin C deficiency is a common problem in koi fish. Vitamin C is necessary to metabolize collagen for bones and joints. Each formula is rich in long-lasting stabilized vitamin C.
Koi are ravenous feeders, eating a lot of food in short periods. They have no stomach, so you should feed them at least 2x a day, morning and evening. Smaller feedings more often is the preferred method.
PRIMARY & SUPPLEMENTAL FOODS:
Like humans, koi get bored eating the same food every day if it’s not to their standards. It’s suggested to choose a minimum of one primary and one supplemental food to encourage variety, so they don’t get bored.
70% FLOAT/30% SINK RATIO:
MICROBE-LIFT’s unique formula has a 70% float and 30% sink ratio so that the less aggressive feeders who tend to stay on the bottom to feed will get their fair share.
The team at Ecological Laboratories is focused on environmental stewardship and sustainable development. By providing safe, natural products they allow their customers to also be good stewards of the environment so that it will be suitable for future generations. They produce their own bacteria, ensuring that every product they put their name on is 100% safe.
We were having issues with our koi and this food was recommended. Our fish love it and I like that some of it sinks so our less aggressive fish have a little snack at the bottom for later. I actually mix it with 2 other koi foods so I have multiple sizes for multiple sizes of fish and for a little variety. Also, Microbe-Lift was extremely helpful with our fish issues. We use many of their products.
This product has decent ingredients, but for larger koi they struggle to find the very small pellets. If microbe-lift had mixed sized pellets in this, I would buy again.
I can tell this is a high quality fish food but for some reason my fish didn’t like it very much. They nibble on it when I first throw it in but that’s it then they don’t want anything to do with it.
