Win a Year's Supply of Koi Fish Food

Win a year's supply of koi fish food

This competition closed on Thursday, 27 April 2017 at 11:55 AM

Colourful koi carp in a garden pond or pool can look beautiful, so it's well worth ensuring their health and longevity with the right food.

The JBL ProPond one year koi nutrition package includes four bags of koi feed, one for each season, each containing varying levels of protein and fat. In winter, when koi are hibernating and less active, feed with the winter bag, which contains less protein. As temperatures rise, switch to the high protein spring and summer foods, which help support increased physical activity at higher temperatures. To help keep the pellets fresh, they're contained within a resealable bag.

We have five prizes available to win, each comprising a year's supply of ProPond koi fish food, worth £123.80, from JBL.
