Microbe-Lift Legacy Koi Foods



The concept of probiotics—direct-fed microbials (DFM)—began in the early 1950’s when researchers observed a positive growth response in animals fed with antibiotics. This led researchers to theorize that intestinal microflora may play a role in health and vitality. Continued research has determined that a delicate balance exists in the intestinal tract between beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria. The balance of these two bacterial groups in the fish’s intestines is an important factor which can be upset by a stresses, such as shipping; changes in diet, water quality, water temperature and/or environment; additions of new aquatic life; etc. If the beneficial intestinal bacteria decrease and the potentially harmful bacteria increase, it is possible to compromise fish health and performance. Additionally, koi and goldfish have no stomachs and use their intestinal tract for digestion, so it is important that enzyme producers survive and germinate there. Because of their efficient enzyme production and other metabolite-producing capabilities for intestinal tract conditions, Ecological Laboratories, Inc. has specifically selected two strains of Bacillus (B. subtilis and B. licheniformis) for inclusion in all of its fish foods. We call them
Nature’s Building BlocksTM. FDA (USA) and EU (European Union) Approved, these bacteria have been tested for 1) strain stability, 2) efficacy and 3) safety. Extensively studied, they were found to be genetically stable, non-genetically modified, produce no toxins, and—being naturally occurring organisms—environmental impact studies show these strains pose no threat to the environment.

They also show the following characteristics:

• Form spores to survive extrusion conditions
• Naturally occurring nonpathogenic microorganisms
• Utilize large numbers of carbohydrates for growth
• Produce and secrete a variety of relevant enzymes, e.g. protease, lipase and amylase which break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats into smaller, more easily digested nutrients used for growth, health and vitality!

 

The MICROBE-LIFT®/LEGACYTM 7-Day Nutritional Feeding System

Classified as “omnivores”— those who eat foods derived from plants or animals — Koi will eat practically anything humans will! It’s important to make sure your koi and pond fish get fed a daily diet that is well balanced. The MICROBE-LIFT/LEGACY 7-DAY BALANCED FEEDING SYSTEM
TM will achieve maximum health benefits by providing the highest levels of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water (moisture content), thereby strengthening the fish’s immune system and enabling the fish to produce needed body heat, energy and growth.

Due to their individual size, sex, environment and genetic make-up, each koi has its own individual nutritional requirements. In general, Koi are ravenous feeders and will consume a lot of food in short periods. So while it is important to feed them at least twice a day—morning and evening—smaller and more frequent feedings are the preferred method.

Water temperature is the most important factor in determining what kind of food to feed your fish because the metabolic rate (rate at which energy derived from food is utilized) is influenced by the pond water temperature.

Choose one of MICROBE-LIFT/LEGACY’s three primary foods and feed it to your koi and pond fish three days per week while alternating with either of MICROBE-LIFT/LEGACY’s two supplemental foods—LEGACY FRUITS AND GREENS
TM and LEGACY IMMUNOSTIMULANTTM— four days per week.
