UPDATE ON OUR PROGRESS! May 20 2024, 1 Comment

As many of you know, we were basically kicked out of the building we had been leasing for years due to it being sold.  Although the new owners have big plans and high hopes, they have now realized things don't just happen overnight! They have offered us an opportunity to re-open at the same place!  We are working diligently to get things rolling again!

Why are we closed? March 06 2024, 0 Comments

First, I want to say "thank-you" to all of our customers who made America's Best Koi Food a success! With that said, we can't open for business right now.  Our building that we leased for many years recently transferred ownership to a new establishment "Vets Wellness Village". If you're a big NFL fan, you may know this group. They intend to do a lot of renovating, including adding a specialized pain clinic for veterans. While this is all wonderful, we were expected to move aside while all this construction is taking place.  We are so sorry for the short notice and inconvenience!

Warmer Days are Coming Soon! February 17 2023, 0 Comments

Here we are again awaiting for Spring! I need warm air, sunshine, and less rain for sure!  We have seeds planted under grow lights with a few seedlings already coming up. We are beginning to plot our growing area, but it just keeps raining! 

Like me, I'm sure everyone is tempted to plant something or feed something on those occasional sunny days when it's getting close to spring time, but we must have patience! We can have three days of sunshine and then suddenly an ice storm. Just this week, we woke up in the morning to 70 degrees and by 3 pm it was 45 degrees!  

Always take care when feeding your fish this time of year. They may eat the food, but it will not digest (assimilate) properly if the water temperature changes rapidly.

Meanwhile, we have fresh new inventory of both maintenance diets and color-enhancing diets. Buy it now and when the fish are ready to eat, you will be too! 

Got fingerlings?  We've got 45% protein grow-out 1.5 mm micro-pellets in stock. You won't need it for long. They'll be ready for the 35% protein color-enhancing 3.5 mm pellets in no time at all!

As always, we appreciate you - and your fish!


WHAT'S THAT CRAWLING AROUND IN MY FISH FOOD? August 06 2022, 0 Comments

In this blog, we will discuss how to deal with pantry pests that may be seen in your fish food.  These little flitter critters migrate to any kind of grain and especially love your pet's food!  We offer some helpful ways to get rid of them!


NEW PRODUCTS ARE COMING! February 09 2022, 0 Comments

We expect to receive new inventory by the 3rd week of February!  So sorry for the delay, but these days these things just seem to take more time. Thank you all for your understanding, and I'm sure we will be up and going very soon!

Here's to a New Season of Good Health and Happiness! April 17 2021, 0 Comments

Hello again from America's Best Koi Food!  We hope to find everyone is healthy, happy, and ready to get back to some kind of normal!  It's time for togetherness, to renew our spirits and minds, and heal any frustrations we may have been dealing with!  Whatever you do - don't forget to feed the fish! 

Check out our freshwater fish food with 40% protein. Many fish keepers enjoy feeding this when the water gets warmer and there are lots of babies to feed! With the high fat content of this feed, it is a great choice for trout and bass! 

We continue to keep in stock this year the 32% protein no corn diet, and now there is a small pellet available as well!  

Don't forget the color enhancing wheat germ diet for koi - available now in 40 lb bags!

As always, we have the maintenance fish feeds with 32% and 35% protein available in large and medium sized pellets. Hopefully, we will have the small pellets some time next month. 

We've done our best to maintain our prices.  We understand completely what everyone is going through with the increase of the cost of EVERYTHING!  Please take advantage of the sale prices while it lasts...we are being told all the time to expect product and freight costs to increase throughout this year.

We wish for you a year of wellness!  Hope everyone gets vaccinated!  Stay Safe!

How We are Dealing with Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 March 19 2020, 4 Comments

Hello, Friends.  I certainly hope you all are doing good, but mostly I hope you and your family are healthy during this crazy pandemic our world is fighting.  I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that we are still open and fulfilling orders daily.  We are keeping in close touch with UPS, and our daily pickups are continuing - for now.  Although our county has been hit with several cases of the virus, there are no known positive cases in our small town. As of today, all restaurants and bars have been closed for dine-in, our schools are closed until mid-April, and our local retail establishments have temporarily changed business hours.  Some larger stores outside of our town have completely closed temporarily.  We here at our little business (there are just a few of us!) typically don't do much but go to work and go home!  We have very few visitors, and we usually deliver fish food to our local customers.  However, we are following the guidelines for cleanliness and hand washing.  Believe me, when  you are handling fish food, you wash your hands a lot anyway!  We were informed that the likelihood of the virus contaminating shipping packaging, including cardboard, is low.  Additionally, if it were to be released on a package, the virus would not live more than 24 hours on these surfaces.  If you have a concern, I think it would be fine to spray the BOX with a disinfectant before you open it, but I don't think it would be necessary to spray the bag.  

Stay Informed and Be Safe!  We thank you for your business, and please know you can contact us any time!
