    Whether this "works" or not, it's not something I would do often. It sure is a pain in the ass to administer. I'm already over it, but want to continue to see if any worthwhile results.

    It's also hard to qualify improvement, as I have been extra viligilant on water quality, having performed water changes at least every other day. So any improvement could be a result of that....

    I gave up. Way too much of a pain in the ass for me. Back to auto feeder pellets. Lesson learned. And yes, Troy, Bobby, Michael and Richard- you guys tried to tell me, but I had to learn for myself. Luckily this little experiment cost me less than $20 and a week of time! Cheapest lesson in koi I've ever had.

    Minus the Pain in the Rear, did you see any change in Skin or Water Quality?

    Not that I can qualify by the food. I was doing daily or every other day water changes, plus system is in top shape. So any 'improvement' could be attributed to that.
