The one fish I am scared to transfer is my fox face. Every time I have to put my hand in my tank for something I cringe at the thought of him hitting me with his venom. I have made a neat fish trap so I hope he falls for it before I have to remove the rock so I can put him in a QT while I complete the transfer.
They do sting a little Not too much to worry about though unless you are the rare few that are allergic. There are actually far more dangerous and/or worse things that could potentially harm you in a tank. I'd leave him in there.
But that's just me. Biased opinion based on me liking fox faces

Oh yea I want to see it up and running too. But my wallet and my wife will slow me down once I start the plumbing. I did buy my protein skimmer today an Aqua C EV-240 with a mag drive 18 pump. EV240

Now I just need to find a good price on some tanks for my sump and fuge. I am also looking for a used Ocean Motions 4 way!

Well I would say great minds think alike! Or maybe it could be all the trial and error along with information sharing on 3reef.

It has been a busy day of work on the stand. I am using a spray gun hooked on to my air compressor to paint it. I had never painted with one so after a little practice I was off and painting. After I was all done I decided I need to put a clear coat on to make it a bit more shinny. And UPS brought me two gifts.

And here are my gifts UPS delivered. an Aqua C EV-240 skimmer with a mag 18 pump. Two Power centers.
