    A lot of folks do not realize they have ocular spines that pop out when in danger, and then they house them with predatory fish. Bad combo.

    A thorny issue

    The name macracanthus crudely translates as 'large thorn' and refers to a spike the fish carries beneath each eye. In times of distress it is released from under a flap of skin and juts out sharply.

    When handling Clowns, or when trying to net them, beware as these can easily pierce human flesh or become entangled. The larger the fish, the greater the hazard!

    Skirmishes among shoals in CL's will also cause it to pop out, so it's not unusual to find someone in a CL shoal with battle scratches.

    When I use to sell them I'd used a fine net to catch them and even then they would sometimes get they're spikes caught! The spikes will draw blood (that's first hand experience) HA HA

    Been sliced by them before many many years ago netting large ones out of a decorated lfs display tank.

    Nothing much cut wise but cirtainly a good warning system to fend of enemies.
