Q1. Will Garra Rufa damage healthy skin?
Q2. Does it hurt, do they bite?
The answer is no to both questions. The fish are great for healthy skin too making it softer and more supple. If you are concerned about the fish biting, please don’t be, Garra Rufa do not have teeth and the sensation first of all is ticklish at the most.
They do not eat your skin, they use their rough lips to slough off dead or diseased skin cells which are passed through the gills to extract minerals and salts and the dropped back into the water where they are filtered out by a jet stream filter area, the water is sterilized by UV encapsulated tubes then returned to the tank, the filters are cleaned every 24 hours.
