    lol.while diving at north pier sometime back looking at multispinus angel i was trying to catch and my hand went on the stonefish accidentally,luckily i was wearing gloves,but anyway caught the stonefish and placed it in a 3ft tank and use to feed it juvenille blacktails,but eventually gave it to a friend who had a predator tank

    Ditto - BUT - Don't look at the subject when you take PICTURES! Sea Urchin spins go THROUGH glove - believe me!

    When we started diving, my wife nearly touched a lion-fish - because it was beautiful and "just hanging there".....
    I nearly got a fit underwater....
