Picked up a curly cue, pics

Ya I went to get a firefish from the LFS and they didn't have any I would buy and I happened across this thing with no $ tag.I we talked it out to $20 since it was on a 5lb rock anyway.I figured it was a good deal.

I read up a bit on them, but any real life experiance would be appreciated also.

They have a very powerful sting and are fish eaters. They are cousins to aiptasia

I had one when 1st starting out and it grew like a weed....then ate my $30 fire shrimp. IME, I wouldn't recommend keeping one, as was already said there sting is potent and they grab anything they can (including your fingers!)
