No trip to the emergency room. It's just supposed to be like a bee sting except its a little more painful.

If you get stung run you hand or arm under the hottest water you can stand for 20-30 minutes. When I was stung I did this and it does help plus it eases the pain, it does hurt to get stung & everyone tolerates pain different.

I was feeding, have 3 Volitans in my tank, I went to give my pinktail a piece of food, looked away when someone said some thing to me & BAM. I put my hand right on a lion.....lol It was my own fault!


Look's Like A Butterfly & Stings Like A Bee!!
