10. Qian Hu Fish Farm

Back in the 2000s, I remember going to my friends’ houses and seeing many of their living rooms equipped with large fish tanks. I just assumed these had been purchased from neighbourhood fish shops (where fish live in tanks on display). However, it wasn’t until I came across Qian Hu Fish Farm, that I realised that some fishes can be caught personally and brought home!

Thus, at this fish farm in Singapore, visitors get to catch their own fish as pets. Also, Qian Hu sells aquariums and all the necessary equipment you might need. Other fun activities like farm tours and fish spas are available too.
