Hikari Silkworm Selects Medium 500 gm


An excellent treat is rich in silkworm pupae, something Japanese koi farmers have used for centuries to add weight and improve luster and shine. This formulation offers more than 50% natural silkworm pupae in a proprietary blend that eliminates oxidation thereby eliminating the terrible smell and potential health issues silkworm foods are known for.

A Uniquely Balanced Treat For Koi

  • Uses a centuries-old traditional ingredient
  • The proprietary process reduces chances of silkworm oxidation
  • Adds weight rapidly while improving sheen and luster
  • Heightened lipid and protein levels in a formulation koi will readily use
  • A flavor even the most finicky koi will love


Regularly monitor your temperature and adjust feedings as required, never over-feed.

  • Above 20°C(68°F) – Silkworm Selects™ should comprise 20% to 40% of total amount fed and be mixed with the other Hikari koi diets. Using this mix, feed 2 to 4 times per day the amount your fish will consume within 5 minutes.
  • Below 20°C(68°F) – We strongly recommend using Silkworm Selects™ primarily as a treat comprising no more than 10% of the total amount fed. For colder temperatures, we recommend Hikari Wheat-Germ.
