    galing nung site Bro ..according to the site members these are some of the must have pag nagaalaga ng Koi ..Sodium chloride(Salt) ,Potassium permanganate(water treatment), gentian violet(gamit sa mouth ulcer or skin fungal infection , Iodine , formalin , tetracycline, malathion( pesticide gamit sa plants)Iodine ..may link din sa site from a book about dosage http://www.akca.org/library/medic.htm.

    come to think of it halos lahat ng chemicals on the list are just sitting in front of my nose , gamit ko sa trabaho here and dyan sa Pinas..pwede pala gamitin ..need to study more for the dosage/s at baka ma OD yung mga isda ko.

    Some of my Japanese imports, sadly I have to bid them goodbye in a few months. The largest one is about 70cm, she's the yellow one.

    If shooting de-stresses you via testosterone bursts, staring at large koi fish can relax and induce you to a zen-like trance hehehe!

    afaik bro, pag maganda ang bloodline (this usually means direct import from japan) they can grow to as long as 1 meter. for your pond i would suggest yung local na para di din masyado giant, or you can get the entry level ng imported. yung growth naman nila will really depend on how big your pond is. yung akin kasi swimming pool converted to a pond, so very maluwag sila.

    punta ka sa koi village sa edsa corner ng magallanes, meron sila dun yung tig 100 or 150 each. you can start with those just to see if your pond is suitable for koi na. and test the chemicals you plan to use para di mahal kung mamatay. easy naman alagaan yung mga Koi's parang aso sila me kanya kanyang characteristics and lalapit sayo pag nakita ka na parang humihingi ng pagkain.
