Not the usual pose for a beginning of the week pic of the kid. The aquarium has a pool at child height containing what are sometimes called doctor fish, or, more properly, garra rufa, found in parts of the Middle East and Southeast Asia. They have no teeth and will nibble dead skin from humans, leading to their use  for pedicures in some places. This may not be such a good idea and the practice is illegal in some countries and several U.S. states (but not this one).     

It feels like tickling to most people. Ellie thought it was a hoot and could hardly pull herself away.
