Actually, I didnt even notice that. That is absolutely hillarious!!! Ironically enough i just used exclamations points. And do not worry. It happened as a result of me feeding Cyclop eeze.

Its a 120 gallon tank, with 90 # of lr and 150 # of live sand/dead sand that was seeded. The corals are way too numerous to mention, but most I frag and sell. The fish include 3 purple tangs, one mimic tang, one yellow eye tang, one sailfin tang, one maroon clown, 1 sleeper banded goby, a maiting pair of mandarins, a chalk bass, and a maiting pair of twinspot gobies. All of this is filtered by a 40 gallon sump, and two 6 inch diameter skimmers designed to handle a 500 gallon aquarium each. The bulk of the motion is provided by 2 tunze streams run on independant wavetimers. Oh yea, I also have a pistol shrimp. I love this tank. Amongst all of mine, it is my baby.

Just an update for all of those concerned. The red mark has gone away, and all that is left is gentle pain to the touch. Working with these as long as I have, I forget why they are called cniderians.

Very nice. Some day I hope to go with a reef tank.

Final update before I go to sleep. The area of attack has turned slightly hard and red, and is acting as though it is scabbing over. A very thin scab, but a scab none the less. If i remember my immuno class, combined with my human anatomy class, that means that the nematocysts have killed at least the first 10 layers of cells to get to a blood vessel (they would have had to go through the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis). My stupidity never ceases to amuse me.

You are fortunate....I have seems some serious fire coral 'burns', and many which have resulted in permanent scarring.
