    Qian Hu Ornamental Fish Farm operates a nail spa that is different. Instead of using conventional tools to remove the dead skin and cuticle of your feet, it uses the fish, garra rufa.

    This fish is also known as Doctor Fish, Nibble Fish, Kangal Fish or Lickers Fish. It is found in the rivers of Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Turkey and Syria. It can live at a temperature around 37 degree Celsius in hot pools. They have a lifespan of 4 to 6 years.

    At Qian Hu Fish Spa, customers are seated round a huge communal fish pool with their legs immersed in it. Scores of fish nibble away at the dead skin on their feet. I felt hundreds of tweezers pecking at my feet. It was ticklish, occasionally a bigger Nibble fish would take a big bite. eowwwww ........

    I was told my skin would feel silky smooth and healthy after the dull and dead skin is removed. So I graciously endured for 30 minutes. Guys at the pool were giggling. A lady claimed her skin was smoother after the treatment and intends to have her whole body immersed the next session. Horrors!

    This Doctor Fish therapy is said to heal Psoriasis. The fish nibble at the diseased skin until the upper skin is completely removed and release a small quantity of dithranol, an enzyme which results in skin rejuvenation.

    Qian Hu sells these fish, so you can re-create the spa at home. A small Garra rufa costs $10 and a larger one is $20. Don't worry, these are not Pirahna fish, your kid would not turn into a skeleton should he accidentally fall into the pool. hehehe....

    Charges : $10 for 30 minutes, with slippers and towels which you are free to take home.

    Open Daily Mon - Thurs : 9 am to 6 pm Fri - Sun & Public Holiday : 9 am to 7 pm

    After visiting Nippon Koi Farm, I drop by at Qian Hu fish farm since it is just a min drive away.

    Similar to Mainland, they carry a variety of accessories. In fact, it might be the biggest stockkist for aquarium accessories in Singapore.

    There are many glass tanks in one big hall displaying various type of tropical fishes and Arowana. There is another hall besides it displaying all the aquarium accessories.

    There is a hall equip with many concrete ponds keeping Kois, gold fish and some other tropical fishes. The Koi is of the lowest quality. There use to have big butterfly black gold fish in the pond but I see none of it now.

    In short, I only like the Arowana here. Although there are places specialise in Arowana, you can pay a visit here if you are a hobbist for Arowana.
