I learned something new this week...

This may well be common knowledge to most of you, but I didn't know that loaches' barbs had a type of venom in them. (cories and plecos too) I got pricked by one and my finger turned numb! I thought it was kind of cool, but I sure feel sorry for any fish that experiences that! I guess they should never have dared to challenge a loach!
