Aquariums are for looking at, not putting your feet into

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

VERITY LUSH: Don’t blame gran for kids munching on e-numbers

Have your say

As a kid I remember walking through an underground shopping centre in Sheffield that had an aquarium built into the wall.

I honestly thought it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. Still do really.

I was reminded of that childhood memory when I popped into Fareham Shopping Centre recently.

Have you seen the tanks of fish now in place near Debenhams? These little tiddlers are meant to nibble all the dead skin off your feet.

Sounds gross, I know. Possibly not something you want to do in the middle of a shopping centre either.

But the Garra rufa fish are the latest beauty craze.

Lots of people have already been won over but I can’t help thinking that fish are for looking at, not putting to work.
