Locate on the 93a hwy, this lake is a great place to relax and if the temperature is right, a great place to take a dip and cool down.

Doctor fish

“Garra rufa have been integrated into a spa treatment where they feed on the skin of patients with psoriasis. While the doctor fish treatment has been found to alleviate the symptoms of psoriasis, the treatment is not curative, and no cure for psoriasis currently exists. The use of the fish as a spa treatment for the wider public is still widely debated on grounds of efficacy and validity.” Wikipedia

I’ve been told these are not Garra Rufa, and the species is called Lake Chub.
