A controversial new treatment is under investigation from health experts after concerns were raised that it might be linked to infections.
The latest craze is called fish pedicures and this involves Garra Rufa fish nibbling away at people's feet that have been dipped in a fish tank.
While clients claim that they benefit from the process, representatives of the Exotic Fish Coalition have complained that Garra Rufa are suffering from ailments previously unknown to the species.
EFC spokesman Rainulf Van Offenbach explains : "Increasing numbers of these fish are having to be treated for oral ulcers and verrucas.
But the most common new malaise that's hitting the Garra Rufa is a particularly nasty infection called Athlete's Mouth.
We are demanding that fish pedicures be outlawed immediately. If not, then these diseases will spread and may wipe out the whole species."
