The doctor fish can survive in 43 degree Celsius water. This is the main reason they are mainly used in spa centers. And in the spa centers the fishes are not fed so when the clients dip their limbs in the puddle, it would be real treat to them.

The doctor fishes fed only on the dead skins and they leave the healthy skins unscathed to heal and restructure. The fish spa treatment is said to be pain free, leaving the clients with a pleasurable itchy feeling.
