    I wonder how many hospitals train their staff to cope with "those silly buggers who keep dangerous marine fish" :lol:

    a&E didn't have the slightest idea what to do, my arm was paralysed, they rang someone who asked was it similar to a weaver fish (they get a few of these being in scarborough)
    which it was - for future reference for anyone who has one, immerse area in as hot a water as you can stand, not scalding obviously

    Lionfish or any other weaver fish is definitely off my list! If I ever say we're thinking of getting one, please put us off :lol:
