    Koi food for better Shiroji

    Is there an ingredient, supplement or feed that is good to better or enrich the shiroji on koi? I understand that not all koi have luster or glow that high Class koi have, but if there is a food that will make the existing white whiter, that would be great.

    Hi
    I have heard cold water will help to develop Shiroji and Sumi. I heard this about Dainichi Koi farm's special Shiroji and sumi characteristics. but nothing about food.

    In no particular order

    Saki-Hikari Pure White Shiroji Maintenance Koi Diet - Most technologically advanced koi diet used by All-Japan Grand Champion koi breeders to win competitions

    Hi-Silk 21 | Champion Nishikigoi

    Tomigai Tategoi 8 lb Box

    I've used all three and saw improvements in the shiroji from each brand. I wasn't doing a side by side test or anything which is why I won't rank them its just that I have happened to have used all three and all three worked as advertised.
