This river is teeming with fishes of various species.The fishes in the river too are protected by the local law and it is prohibited to catch them or hurt them in any way.And as a direct result, the villagers in the area have come up with a unique eco-tourism attraction at the kampung by taming the fishes to humans. The fish massage at Tagal Sg Moroli is a truly unique experience that that has brought tourists in droves to this otherwise little known kampung. The fishes are so used to humans that the mere sight of someone coming close to the river would group them all in anticipation. There are mainly two different species in the river, the larger Kelah swimming closer to the surface and rub their body over yours, as well as the smaller Pelian which tend to bite your feet and legs. Unlike the tiny fish at regular fish spas, the Pelian’s bite does hurt a little so keep walking and moving your feet in the river to shoo them away if you can’t stand the bite. The larger Kelah fish are actually attracted to the fish pellets Bathers are supposed to hold in their fists while soaking in the river. While trying to suck the pellets from your fists, they rub over your body and provide a light massage. Fortunately they were closer to the surface and therefore stayed well above waist level. Visitors who are too timid or too ticklish can simply soak their legs in the water before running out of the river screaming hysterically with arms flailing in the air…while bolder ones can soak their entire body and enjoy the sensation of these cold, slimy fishes rubbing themselves over your body.
