    The contents similar to Hikari Wheatgerm as its less protein. IMHO, rather than buying an unknown brand, better invest in Hikari or any other known brand like Hikari, Sakai or others. Pls consider :)

    Bro Kokwa,
    Ask yourself the objectives of jumping into this hobby? If you know your direction, then you will know how much money you need to spend & whether it is worth on every single cent & are you willing to go to that extend. Some hobyist just keep kois though it is local to pass their time & beutify their garden. Some keep to train themselves on grooming skills & to see their kois potential. Some target for competion meaning buying expensive one & register for show. As you can see on the examples of objectives, roughly you will know the amount of money you need to spent & can you accept that? Not to discourage you bro but as a student with no income, I will suggest you go ahead & buy that food within your means & learnt by experience rather than theory only but of course not necessarily expensive is excelent whereas cheap is no good. Choice is in your gand. We can only advice.
    My kois are my lover

    Classica is another branding product by Qian Hu, a singapore company. Most product is made in China, so price quite cheap.

    Kokwa,since u r student...i know the feel bcoz i kept local koi in my heyday..
    But since they are quite a number of dealers now,also helps from this forum,you still can get japanese kois tosais that usually ranged from 100-200..better quality can be acquired at gosanke and yamakoshi for 300++ tosais.
    I also didnt put much money into this hobby,as im still learning and hey,i also kept them in fgt until my new house is completed,then only i will have a pond.

    Dont buy local koi,why bcoz our local koi,i repeat OUR local didnt stand up for any standard.
    But there's still 1 option for local kois.get them this feb-march at mrkoi farm mudpond.
    He breed using the japanese parents (oyagoi) and they are o f course quality oyagois.

    Dont be demoralized,save some pocket money or allowance,get couple of japanese kois and enjoy this hobby.
    Just to remind,please do get and ask informations from all sifus here.they are more than happy to help.These sifus helped me when i totally messed up with the filter and bacteria set up.

    Bro kokwa,

    What i hv heard was local koi breeders r focusing on QUANTITY whereas japanese r on QUALITY. According to bro Izrul, japanese kois aren't that expensive for a beginner. Price range from RM100 ++ up to RM1000++ for a tosai. So i personally felt japanese kois r worthy. :-D
