    I bought a mini anemone yesterday and put it in my tank. This morning when I woke up my eye was hurting and swolen like somebody punched me in the eye and I had a terebel headace so I went to the chemist and they confurmed I had a alergic reaction to my mini anemone and gave me some antyhistomine. I'm feeling better nou but won't under estamate these guse again.

    always important to use gloves where posible and to wash your hands really well after moving corals!
