The only critters that you really don't want are mantis shrimp, very large bristleworms, and there are some worms that are bad if you are keeping clams. Also large hermit crabs and predatory crabs can be a problem sometimes. There are also some parasitic amphipods although rare.

I do however plan on having a mantis tank sometime soon. If I can find a pretty spearer type I might go with one of those, otherwise I think I might get a peacock smasher.

Sorry about that lol.

You'll certainly have a different reaction to a lionfish if your allergic to bees. Most people will not though. The most damage i've heard of someone getting is having they're thumb swell up and hurt for a couple wekks.

And I never knew urchins had some venom in them lol. I was always told they just poke you lol.
I'm tired of getting pointless messages. If your going to start a conversation or ask me something, keep up with it.

Yep, all Euphyllia species have a strong enough poison in their nematocysts that after many (30+ estimated) exposures to it you start to put yourself at risk for an anaphylactic episode. This is not limited to Euphyllia but also Millepora, Cataphyllia, etc. as well as most anemones.

One other note, to be specific, bristle worms don't "sting" as say the firing nematocysts of corals/anemones do but rather them stinkin bristles break off under your skin and can cause a burning reaction. I pulled a piece of rock out of a bucket that I thought would have no hitch-hikers and got a finger full where it looked like a toothbrush. Elbow length gloves these days.

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
