    Malaysian Super Red Masheer (Tor/Kelah Bara)

    Kelah is a fish from the genus Tor. The general name of 'mahseer' (Indian for 'big head') is popularly used. In the nothern parts of India, mahseer is also called 'kurriah' or 'kukhiah' ,whilst our kejor (tengas) is called 'kajra'.
    There is high possibility that the name of kelah is derived from these terms. After all, the Hindu civilization was the earliest to entrench itself in the Malaysia Peninsular.

    U have any comments or question? Please email to ........

    Keep in touch. Tq

    As u can view the red color have not develop yet. It is known that the Kelah Bara only starts to shows its true characteristics when its about 10" in size.

    There is only 1 type of kelah bara, its caught in sungai/Lubuk tembat. others are only known as kelah merah. Kelah bara is when the fish is amber not red. kelah merah Kelantan is pinkish & kelah merah pahang is red. there is no difference between kelah bara n bara tembat. If its caught in rivers other then tembat, its kelah merah or grades lower like emas, lipan etc. higher grade then kelah bara is kelah biru and kelah bara blood red. kelah biru is only found 1:50000 tails n blood red 1:100000 tails. kelah biru is RM800@5" n blood red is RM1200@5".

    I bought as a Malaysian Blue Kelah. For red kelah I still know abit for blue wise my knowledge of them is still limited.
    Heard from the LFS that blue in malaysia is still quite rare compared to thailand which are plentiful.

    yup, blue is super rare in Malaysia. its to difficult to diff a blue kelah wif a tengas when they are small, coz of the blue kelah's rounded face.
