I know a place where fish take care of your feet!

The Palometa,Trachinotus goodei, is an ocean-going game fish of the family Carangidae. In the wild, Palometa eat worms, insect pupae, and smaller fish.
Palometa are most recognized by their elongated dorsal and anal fins with dark anterior lobes. The dorsal fin usually has 7-8 spines and 19-20 soft rays, while the anal fin has 2-3 spines and 16-18 soft rays. They can have colors from gray to blue-green on the tops of their heads, and have silver-colored sides with four narrow, vertical bars. A Palometa’s breast usually has an orange tinge, and the tips of their fins are darkened. The tail has no scutes, unlike many members of its family, and has a faint fifth vertical bar near the base. The largest known Palometa was 50cm long; The largest known weight of any Palometa is 560g
