Qianhu Fish Farm: Somewhere To Bring Your Kids This June Holidays!

Qianhu Fish Farm had very humble beginnings.

The Yap family started off as pig farmers before venturing into the ornamental fish business. They converted old pig pens into concrete ponds and bred Guppies for local exporters.

There is no turning back for the small family business which has since grown into the corporation it is today. In year 2000, Qianhu became a public listed company on the SGX.

I enjoy visiting the farm to escape from the bustle of city life. I also like to get my aquarium supplies here because it is not too far from where I stay but most importantly is, watching the fishes has a therapeutic effect on me.

Besides, the aquarium shop near my place got their supplies from Qianhu too so it makes sense for me to come here straight where I can find everything I need all under one roof.

You can enjoy an idyllic afternoon here with your loved ones to relieve the childhood days of longkang fishing or simply pamper your feet with a fish spa.

You can also seek advise here if you are setting up an aquarium for the first time.

Did you know international star Chow Yun Fatt has donated his Green Arowana to Qianhu many years ago? Unfortunately, I have no idea where the fish is right now.


This is the Goldfish shed where all kinds of Goldfish can be found

Next to the Goldfish zone are some tanks of Rays

Huge ray!

Then there is the Fish Gallery where the more expensive fishes are kept.

At the Agro Education Centre, they used to have rabbits and guinea pigs which I feel are not kept in very optimal conditions. I am glad that they have done away with the exhibits now. Here, you can feed the Kois, longkang fishing, or have a session of fish spa at a minimal charge.

For SGD6, you will be given a small tank, fish net and 30 minutes to fish

The shot I was waiting for...

Longkang fishes made up primarily of livebearers like Mollies and Swordtails

Qianhu offers one of the cheapest rates for fish spa at SGD10 per 30 minutes

But obey the house rules!
