Oh yeah- and they can get really big as well. My LFS has one that is about 6-8 inches in diameter (just the body) that another customer brought in because it started eating her corals

have you personally been stung?

weve got one and ive wondered just how bad it could be.

Lol. That's my luck too. That's why lights must be on and I am at the other end of the tank!
