Recently, we had discovered that there are counterfeit products of the Hikari Koi Foods (Wheat-Germ, Spirulina & etc.) in Malaysian market. The genuine and counterfeit products look similar at first glance but in fact, they are very much different in terms of the pellets’ quality (colour and smell), painting technique and packaging.
We have put together a guide to help you in spotting the differences between counterfeits and original Hikari Koi Foods.
