    Fatal, if you’re a fish with a bad attitude.

    In my ignorant youth (as opposed to my ignorant middle age) my father and I had a Zebra Lionfish in our aquarium. It was the most elegant creature in there and when some frantic fish went racing past it, the Lionfish quickly put its poisonous spines down because it recognised that it was simply in the way of some impatient creature, rather than being attacked. But should a fish be so foolhardy as to pick a fight with the beauty…
