Bacto Power

The most important factor for breeding high quality koi is water quality, and the best combination to control water quality is Bio Sponge and Bacto Power.

Shinsuke Bacto Power is a unique bacterial preparation. The origin of the special Shinsuke Bacto Power is in Japan where it’s been produced and used for the past 35 years.

The unique feature of this bacteria is that, in comparison to other bacterial cultures, it breaks down more pollutants. Regular bacterial cultures breakdown only Ammonia (NH3) and Nitrite (NO2), but Shinsuke Bacto Power also breaks down Nitrate (NO3). Nitrate is an inorganic compound which will inhibit the growth and reproduction of the fish population. When the nitrate is filtered out of the water the fish grow quicker and indeed longer, becoming true jumbos. Shinsuke Bacto Power will also contribute positively on assuring a good and stable waterquality.


Top breeders, like Sakai Fishfarm, Danichi Koifarm and Nogami Koifarm do use Shinsuke Bacto Power. “After using Bacto Power and Bio Sponge, the pH of the water remained stable. As a result the koi had very good appetites and their skin became bright and high quality.” On seeing this, the koi farmers were impressed by Bacto Power and Bio Sponge, and they now add Bacto Power every 2 or 4 weeks.
