I was feeding my koi Dr. Foster and Smith staple koi food--they loved it. Of course as we know, Petco took over DF&S recently and I don't see that particular brand of food anymore on the Petco website. They have Kaytee, API, TetraPond, Hikari. Any recommendations?

I think the live aquaria branch of Drs. F&S has remained "open", and they currently have a supply of those foods.

But if for some reason they quit carrying it, I will face the same issue once my current supply of Drs. F&S staple and cool weather food run out. Fortunately, when I first purchased those foods I had compared the labels with other brands, and Blackwater koi foods are a near match. So, even though it is much more expensive than the Drs. F&S brand, I'll probably go with that.

Right, LiveAquaria still carries DFS. From a quick check, it looks like Blackwater Creek is less expensive ($15 for 5 lbs vs $22)
