    Boost your Koi growth rate from 18% to 50%!

    Hi,

    For those who wants their kois to grow real quick!

    Scientists have conducted an experiment where kois which were subjected to violin music under controlled conditions, they found that those kois which listened to music grew as much as 18% to 50% more than kois under the same conditions without the music treatment.

    In order for their test to be more vigorous, they put the kois that were originally the placebo group (no music) in Experiment 1 to be the music recipient in Experiment 2 and to see if they grow quickly too after listening to music like the other group in the first instance.

    In both cases, those kois in the experiments which listened to the the violin music grew much more than those that did not, by as much as 18% to 50% more.

    Fascinating!

    Please see link:

    Those who enjoy their music, may start thinking about sharing it with their kois and enchance their growth rate too!

    Kind regards

    Bill

    LOLs. In my case, I simply use the 'RACK' on them. They don't seem to react to 'water boarding'. In fact they seem to kinda like that. So a few sessions on the Rack and they stretch to twice the size. I do have the radio on in the background however, so that might be a contributing factor---- JR

    Problem is, I would have to listen to it, too. Unless I could persuade the fish to wear headphones.
