inject some boiling oil into your arm and you'll kinda have an idea.
I was lucky though, just hurt like heck, but a customer of mine had his entire arm up to the shoulder swell up twice normal size from getting tagged on his thumb, but he was also allergic to bee stings.

now the saltwater catfish, that had me pleading for the sweet release of death, made me sicker than s**t for about a week. poison + bacteria= no fun

coral beauty's are very gentile requiring a well established tank 3 months is still a bit early for them ,
as for being stung I will not lie it hurts , I also have the scares that came from it ,
always wear glasses and gloves when handling fish or coral,
this is a sting from a Bristol worm yes it was a big one he wrapped around my wrist
I was in agony almost 3 months , you'll think twice about gloves now I'm sure .

Guys and gals, I keep finding this thing in my rock when cleaning. Cant get a clear picture but the best description I can give is it looks like a slug with suction feelers under or on it. (Feelers look like the bottom of my ch. Chip star) I never see it unless I'm cleaning, any idea what it might be? I'm afraid to really mess with it in case it can sting like a Bristol worm.
