Fish Pedicures banned

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - October 9, 2008 Using lots of little fish to nibble bits of dead skin off people's feet is the hot thing in the spa world. But health experts are concerned the fishies have the potential to spread infections. However, officials note they know of no actual cases of fish pedicures causing health problems.

The Zen Luxury Nail & Beauty Bar in a Dallas suburb bought $2,500 worth of the fish. The co-owner tells The Dallas Morning News she's not sure what they're going to do with the 500 guppy-like creatures, now that fish pedicures are banned.
