I found a deal ($3.89) on a 3 pound bag of koi food that is wheatgerm based and wanted to know if it is healthy to feed my koi and also how should it be fed to them. Such as how often/how much etc etc. Thanks.

I've been feeding wheatgerm & garlic in the colder months also mixed in with higher protein summer foods, my fish love it.
The garlic has two properties in that it
1) stimulates your koi to eat again in the spring .
2) protects your fish against parasites , you can chop garlic up and add it to wheatgerm, or you can buy Garlic extract and add it to the wheatgerm , or last but not least you can make your own extract up.
