ouch! I feel your pain. Last week, while playing with a stringray in the 800+ gallon tank in our store, one of the leopard groupers decided my finger looked like a nice snack. Funny thing, it didn't hurt... those suckers have some sharp teeth... but wow did it bleed.

We should start an "Adventures in Reefkeeping!" thread.

I saw a clip on time and they were saying the hammer variety has the strength of a .25 bullet and had a video of one startled and crack a tank open... Cool, but nasty...

The one I saw was about 4 inches or so I believe. Also, I dont know, If I had a mantis shrimp in a small tank and he shattered the glass, it would suck at the time but would give you cool "Fish stories" to tell your friends :P
