Have you heard about this 'sucking' fish?

Hi everyone! Have you ever heard about fish that suck away your dead skin cells? I live in the eastern part of Borneo island and we have this 'fish spa' where you can just dip your legs in a pool, can be a small or big sized pool, that is infested with these friendly sucking fish. These fish will not bite you, instead they will just clean your skin by eating up your dead skin cells. You might feel ticklish at first especially if it's the bigger fish doing the cleaning. It's kind of funny isn't it but this fish spa has become one of the best tourist attraction in my place. Would you like to try it?

There is also this type of foot spa somewhere in Tagaytay City and some of my friends have actually tried that. I haven't really experienced that yet. Yes, indeed according to their stories, it feel ticklish at first. I wonder how I would react if those sucking fish start sucking my feet. Perhaps I'd either giggle or laugh out loud whichever is applicable.

A lot of spas have those now around here, but I've never been to one. Apparently they are pretty good, but I'm a bit squeamish about the thought of it.
