The fox face sting only feels like a bee sting. I've only had it happen once when I first started training mine to eat from my hand

Haha woah thats sketchy stuff! Very impressive for such a shy fish though

I agree with jacks post! More variety, although this is lookig like one heck of a tank so far. Ever thought about an oddball (kinda) fish? Maybe a type of jawfish, or somthing?

Bettas are very cool, but according to LA they eat smaler fish . I don't think one owuld work out since I would like to add a few smaller guys to my tank.

Awesome suggestion though!

Really? On another forum a guy posted saying that it felt REALLY terrible. Maybe it depends on the fish?

I was stung while moving it, I was fine. Lion hurt worse! Lol.. My beta eats nothing but frozen foods. Never touched a shrimp, clown, etc... You keep it fed, it'll leave stuff alone.

Or maybe the guy had a really low tolerance for pain??? We can't blame everything on the fish!!!

OMG! Lionfish's sting is worse than death for me. I have a high tolerance for pain but I was laying down for atleast 30 mins before I could tolerate the pain.

UPDATE

Hi everyone!

So, I was looking at my Blue Hippo to see if the "ich" was still there. Upon further inspection, it almost looks like little spots where he may have scraped himself against a rock. None of the other fish have any spots, so I am hopeful that this treatment is working.

On a sadder note, I can't find my McCosker's Flasher Wrasse. I couldn't find him yesterday, nor today.

Thanks for reading the update.
