About Microbe-Lift Pond Fish Food

A Formula You Can Trust

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.

Latest Technology

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.

Nature’s Building Blocks

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.

A Wide Variety of Koi & Goldfish Pond Foods

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.

Summer Staple

These pellets promote brilliant color development and offer the animal protein and color enhancers that are needed during the summer.

Variety Mix

This variety mix contains a blend of fruits, greens, carbohydrates, protein, wheat germ, and vitamins for your koi and pond fish.

High Growth & Energy

Provides koi and goldfish with a boost of protein for growth in late spring and in the fall when they need to bulk up for their winter fast.

Fruits & Greens

Crafted cut and blended fruits and veggies including apples, apricots, kiwis, mangos, papayas, peaches, pears, broccoli, cabbage and more!

Immuno Food

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

Cold Weather Food

This cold-water diet is made with less protein but contains wheat germ, which is easily digested and also contains higher level of fats.

Big Bites

These are Summer Staple floating pellets in a larger size for feeding your larger Koi. They are rich in animal protein and color enhancers.

Mini Pellets

These smaller-sized pellets are designed for your petite fish. They contain stabilized vitamin C to help promote proper tissue development.

Supporting A Balanced Diet for Healthy Koi


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.


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.


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. 


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. 


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.

great food

this is a great food if youre not sure what to feed them. I personally like it as my first real feeding of the year. its a good blend to cover all bases. as it gets warmer I like to switch a more protein based food by the same brand. the Montmorillonite Clay part is important in early summer and spring feedings, helps boost the fishes health after winter down time. and the rest is just good stuff your fish will love to eat. I have monster sized fish and wish they made a huge bite sized kibble. but the seem to have no problem "hoovering" up the bits. my water stays clear and I dont get extra waste issues with this brand. if you store your food outside, its in a dark container to help with sun. I like to keep the feed in a covered area out of sun myself.

Great product!

We use the summer staple by Microbe-Lift and have been very happy with it. Wanted to try something new as a treat and our koi love it.

Left film on water, fish did not like, made mess

I bought this thinking it would be a healthier option for my koi/goldfish and my tank. First off it leaves an oily film on top of the water. The fish were not excited to eat this and there was a ton of waste. My filters were disgusting. Would not recommend. Maybe the birds will eat it.

fish like this

I put a little in my pond for around 30 gold fish and 5 koi and they really ate it faster then other kinds of food I bought and it’s not to tiny glad I bought this but it’s in a small container and will run out fast so would be nice if it had a big bucket size and less price would be nice too haha
