Handling Precaution

I've just had to move my 4ft tank to allow some redecorating work to be performed: during the course of the tank move, I had to drain the entire thing, having moved all the fish to buckets and old tanks. As I netted out one of the clowns (one of the higher end members of the pecking order), it took a violent objection to being turfed out of the big tank and decided to flash its eye spines - right into the end of one of my fingers ... I'm now left with a millimeter long puncture wound that bled like a b*****d for about five minutes (in much the same way as a finger-prick blood test does). I now know of the pain that Martin felt when he had to pick up his modesta by hand when it decided to do a tour of his bedroom at night. Geez that hurt!
