    This would have been hilarious if not so serious...

    So, I do wish you a speedy recovery with no ill effects.


    And now I will go around the corner where you can't see me and have a good laugh...

    Fairly small I'd say, 1 year old and about the size of a "medium" clown from an lfs

    Wow! I guess now we will have to check whether or not are fish are "Reefer Safe", and not just reef safe. That's a bummer, but it's a warning to all of us to pay attention to what can hurt us in our tanks. One time my wife got stuck by a spiny urchin while feeding fish and had to go to the doctor.

    I had a supper aggressive clown fish. Once I started hand feeding he stopped biting. Worth a try!
