i saw an article in my local newspaper today about fish pedicures....i thought this was some sick joke (like the bonsai kitty scheme), but no- there really is such a thing. a salon in virgina (and several in japan) give pedicures where you soak your feet in a tank and some kind of small carp will suck the callous off your feet....... first of all, that just sounds gross! second- how would the fish survive?? water for pedicures is usually really warm- and US health codes don't let people share pedicure tubs....so they probably live in small tubs. also in the US, the tubs have to be sanitized completely in between use....wondering how the fish would not die immediately from waste build up.
anyways- if you want to see what it looks like put "dr fish" or fish pedicure into you tube and you'll see......so wrong
