Tropical fishAre the KIds big fans of 'Finding Nemo'? Why not  introduce them to different types of fishes at Qian Hu Fish Farm?

Qian Hu is an integrated "one-stop" ornamental fish service provider ranging from breeding of Dragon Fish, farming, importing, exporting and distributing of ornamental fish as well as aquarium accessories. Qian Hu breeds 200 species of fish including endangered and high value ornamental fish such as the South American catfish and the Dragon Fish (Arowana). Kids can even try their hands for “longkang” fishing at the Agro-Education Centre!

Tips for your Fish Farm:

  • For the very young visitors, there are kiddie rides to keep them occupied if they are not

ready to try longkang fishing.

  • Moms and dads, prepare plenty of 50-cent coins for therides.
  • There are also benches under shelters nearby for everyone to take a break.
  • It is quite easy to bring along baby in the stroller as the farm is paved and there are gentle ramps to get from one place to another.
  • Even the fish tanks in the retail areas are placed low to the floor so the little ones can enjoy looking at the fish too.

Tropical Fish Retail Area

Qian Hu offers many species of tropical fish for sale here; you would be spoilt for choice if you were looking to start an aquarium. The names and prices of the fish are clearly labelled on each of the display tanks so you know what you are paying for.

Longkang Fish

This is where you can relive those childhood days of ‘longkang’ or drain fishing – except here you are squatting over shallow concrete pond, there is a fee, and a time limit of about 30 minutes in which to catch as many fish as you can. It is a favourite activity with many of the younger visitors and some older ones too.

Feed Me

Visitors can also feed the numerous koi in  the koi pond with bagged pellets that are on sale at $1 a bag. The pellets can also be used to feed the turtles too.
