Product Description

Hikari Staple Mini Floating Pellet Food is an economical, daily diet for Koi as well as other pond fish. It contains all the basic nutrition your fish need to live a long and healthy life. High in stabilized Vitamin C, Hikari Staple promotes resistance to stress and immunity to infectious disease.

  • Healthy staple diet for Koi and Golfish
  • Nutrient rich formula promotes resistance to disease
  • Easily digestible floating pellets create cleaner water
  • 3.5-4.0 mm (0.14-0.16")

The nutritional floating pellets allow for easy monitoring of the amount of food eaten, which helps eliminate over-feeding. The high digestibility of this formula reduces waste and allows for clearer, cleaner water. Pet Mountain is proud to offer discount bulk pet products.

Do not exceed the amount your fish will eat within three to five minutes of feeding. Remove all remaining food after the feeding period to avoid over-feeding and the water quality problems which can result.

They all love it...

From my 10 inch feeder fish, to my shubunkins, to my koi, they like it better than the flakes.

Jeff, Germantown MD on 06-18-2017
My fish love it..........

Last couple years they didn't seem to like it as much as the flakes, but this year a whole different story......They love it !!!!!

Chrissy, Miami FL on 09-24-2015
Just what we expected!!

We have been ordering our koi fish food from Pet Mountain for about a year now. Great prices and great quality!! All our koi fish, both big and small, really love this food!!

Olivia, Portland OR on 06-02-2015
Good food.

My fishies love the food.

Jackie, Jacksonville FL on 05-19-2015
Hikari Staple Koi Food

My Koi fish absolutely LOVES this food. She is a very happy fish.

Mike, Irvine CA on 08-19-2013

Best food, and best pricing. My koi love it. Thanks Petmountain!

Deborah, Eden Prairie MN on 07-09-2013
Best Koi Food

This is the healthiest and most colorful my koi have ever looked. I think they may be growing bigger than usual, too, but that's my guess. It's obviously more expensive than the cheap stuff, however as a koi pond hobbyist I think it's worth it.

Kathy, Walnut Creek CA on 05-26-2013
The fish are grateful!

Hikari staple koi food is an excellent product, and Pet Mountain charges a great price and gets it to the fish on time. Thanks, everybody!

Joe, Bellbrook OH on 05-07-2013
The best

Best food to grow large healthy koi.

Kathy, Walnut Creek CA on 11-16-2012
Hikari Staple Koi Food

This is an excellent product! Our fish have been happy and healthy for years on this diet. We like Pet Mountain's prices and service, too.

Marc, Arlington TX on 08-28-2012
Over twenty years

We have been using this food for Koi, and some of ours are over twenty years old. My wife was japanese and this is the only brand both she and her mom would use.

Ron, Mason City IA on 05-11-2012
Was happy with product

Hikari Staple Koi food Mini Pellet 4.4 lbs. Just the right size for smaller fish. I mix it with larger pellets and all of the pond fish then can eat.

Joe, Bellbrook OH on 11-23-2011

Received in good condition. Great product for Koi, the best for growing large Koi. You have a new Customer.

Joe, Bellbrook OH on 11-23-2011


Chris , Debary FL on 09-25-2010
Great product, Great price!

My Koi love this food. They are happy and healthy and I am thrilled about finding this product at such a great price! Highly recommend!

Harry, Orland Park IL on 09-23-2010
Great Product

I switched to Hakari Staple 3 years ago and my koi are doing great. Great product.

Marc, Arlington TX on 09-19-2010
used this for years

We've been using Hikari Staple for the Koi in our back yard and our smallest one is now over 12" up to our largest at 26". They have been thriving on this food,

Karen, Westport CT on 09-19-2010
My koi love hikari more than any other food

I have huge koi over 16 years old, over 30" long. The go nuts for Hikari food while other food doesn't interest them. Now their 200 + offspring are eating it up like a feeding frenzy. I've bought other brands but now I'm sticking to Hikari. They love the large pellet.

Broks, Aptos CA on 08-12-2010
Pet Mountain is the best place on-line

Hikari is great food... I've been using it for awhile, the real reason I'm writing this review is because I've ordered from a number of on-line retailers, and Pet Mountain blows the others away. Their pricing is competitive, their shopping ease is top notch, and all of their systems work flawlessly. I won't even bother looking for other suppliers now that I found Pet Mountain...

Jodie, Seattle WA on 07-09-2010
Best Pond Fish Food!

Have used this food for several years with no loss of fish, good growth, and clear water. Firmly believe in quality of product.

Nancy, Kingston TN on 07-04-2010
My Koi love Hikari

My Koi love the Hikari Staple large pellet food and Pet Mountain is much less expensive than buying locally. They are also provide prompt and accurate service.

Lopaka, Hilo HI on 05-02-2010
Good Food

Koi love the food. Worth the money, for the quality food you get.

Michele, Rockville MD on 04-19-2010
Great Food

All of the Hikari products are excellent.

Jerry Hahn, Santa Barbara CA on 10-24-2007
Great year round food

I have a large Koi pond with aquarium windows and a waterfall. It supports my 50 Koi and brings me much joy. Hikari Staple has been a key element of my food provisioning for several years, particularly in the winter months. I strongly recommend it for those of you with many hungry mouths to feed.

Janet, Boerne TX on 08-04-2007
Our fish go nuts!

I just have to set a foot on the bridge over our koi pond and the fish go nuts knowing that the Hikari pellets are headed their way. The pond is always very clear most likely due to the high digestiblity of the product. They're eatin' good and getting sooo big.

Eric, Spokane WA on 08-04-2007
Great summer koi food

Hikarai Staple is a great summer koi food. I have used the medium pellet size which works for both small and larger Koi. My koi have been really healthy ever since I switch over to Hikarai Staple.
