Another fish that hurts ALOT are eels. I've been nailed by my 1.5 foot black edge moray. Not venomous but it sure hurts. Probably the most pain I've ever felt and I've had the tip of my toe almost cut off and ten stitched back on lol. Here's a pic of the eel bite while it was scabbed.

He's awesome though. I think it's worth keeping a lot of the so called "dangerous" fish just because of how awesome they are. As long as you follow the proper safety guidelines you'll be fine .

Venomous stings can be different depending on the person, allergic reaction, amount of envenomation, and age of the animal (young animals will expunge in greater amounts). I've seen people literally act like nothing has happened and others whom had major complications such as mycobacterium infections...not fun. The rule of thumb is always to submerge that body part in as hot as water as you can stand (non-scalding) without burning yourself since the proteins are of heat-labile characteristics and, of course, apply pressure to minimize bleeding. Some of the actual symptoms range from mild localized pain, nausia, and fever to intense pain, vomiting, edema (swelling via excessive fluid due to trauma), cardiovascular complications, etc. All symptoms advance in allergic reactions. it would be smart to visit the E.R. after such an incident since spines may break into the wound during an event or other complications.
