Not a whole lot of saltwater here Can people have allergic reactions to anemone and bristle worms like they can to bee stings? I've heard it compared to bee stings but a bee sting for me is far more serious than alot of other people. That and spider bites. There's a fair chance I'll be in the emergency room and it's at least guranteed that I won't be doing much for the week the swelling lasts.

Very much so yes. Each persons reaction will be different than the next though. There is also the chance of septic infections if the skin is broken.

Best thing you can do to avoid this is where protective gloves when your hands are in the tank.

Cheers

I had one (added LR.com rock in Oct 04) and ignored it for quite along time. Then in May I noticed 2, and in April there was another, etc. Until last month there were 6 and the 2 largest ones were 8" or 9" in diameter.

I hit 'em with Joes Juice 3 weeks ago, one came back and I hit him with Joe's Juice Monday.

They are closely enough (for me anyway) related to Aiptasia that I am treating them as a pest.
