This splendid seven-year-old 94cm/37.5in Kohaku has been crowned all Japan Grand Champion at the 46th All Japan Koi Show.
This year's event was held held from January 31–February 1. The proud owner of the fish is Mr Chan Cheong, and it was bred by the Sakai Fish Farm and raised by Narita Koi Farms.
The Grand Champion Kohaku was fed and grown on a selection of Saki-Hikari foods as its primary diet. Koi fed and grown on Saki-Hikari continuously became Grand Champion from 2002 to 2013. Saki-Hikari is proud to win once again in 2015.
Developed on the back of decades of first hand breeding experience and feeding trials, Saki-Hikari diets provide complete and balanced, superior nutrition, bringing out the Koi’s true potential. The only fish foods to contain Hikari-Germ, a strain of Bacillus bacteria which aids digestion, helps optimise nutrient utilisation resulting in less waste and excellent water quality as well as supporting the Koi’s own good bacteria, making the fish’s immune system stronger. Only the finest quality ingredients go into Saki-Hikari making them extremely palatable and providing superior nutrition.
Saki-Hikari diets are available in small, medium and large pellet sizes and pack sizes of 2kg and 5kg and is available from specialist aquatic retailers.
