Men hallucinate after eating fish

It'd be kind of messed up to eat a $90 Powder Blue Tang (what they run for in my area at a 3-4" size)
tang came in blue...

So, when you going to get on this experiment?? In the name of science! :D
In my tanks at work i've got a foxfaced rabbitfish, seargent major damsels, and some tangs too. Never thought about eating them before.

Unless someone lives in an area where these fish can be caught...I'd think by the time you bought them from the local fish store, they've probably already lost any toxicity. Going from the person that catches them, to a holding tank wherever they were caught, to a wholesaler in the US, to possibly another wholesaler, or just to your local fish store. That takes some time, right?
Not to mention, they fish you purchased could have just not eaten the bad (or in this case...good?) algae.
Lets buy some small damsels wholesale and eat them like popcorn.

and the fire coral (atlantic...good luck getting it).
I've never been stung by fire coral, but supposedly it is one of the most horrible experiences of your life if it happens.
One of the speakers at MACNA last year told a story of scuba diving, and there was a toilet underwater that had fallen from a shipwreck, and it was coated in fire coral. People would think it funny to go and sit on this particular toilet, until their skin reacted to the neomcyst from the fire coral, and then it wasn't funny anymore. And then of course, if you touch the stinged location, or rub it, it just transfers the pain to all locations that you touch after that. What a fun time!
Sorry for all the typing and what not, corals/saltwater are one of the few passions I have, and I got excited about the topic.
goto the keys... key largo or whatever... go out on a boat and go snorkling in the reefs..... its freaking amazing.. like swimming around in a giant aqurium..
you can find tons of fire coral.. funny thing is theres a statue down there in the corals(key largo fl) surrounded by fire coral..... (this is some of the blueest water ive seen in my life with a beuitiful coral reef... you can see where boats drove through it at high speeds.. bastards...completely distories it....)
it wont kill ya...
but it BURNS....
If you go out like 4 times or 3 times on the boat and go snorkling dispite warning, ONE subject in the group of two boats always touches the bright red fire coral... and gets BURNED... i forget what helps the pain, but basicly its like getting burned bad.....
kinda funny how the statue is protected by fire coral in my opion...
didnt know it was hard to find.... i guess it is VERY illegal to scoop some fire coral out of the coral reefs around florida..

*This 5-methoxy-DMT compound had already been observed in toads and even in "dream fish" (Kyphosus fuscus) found off Norfolk Island in the South Pacific. In order to test the claim by inhabitants that this fish produces "nightmares," Joe Roberts, a photographer for National Geographic, broiled and ate some in 1960. The next morning, he reported his experience to have been "pure science fiction": he saw a new kind of car, monuments to mark humanity's first trip into space and so on. A skeptical writer with him had to admit, "I ate a dream fish supper myself. I found it tasty, but strong flavored, like mackerel. I told myself not to dream, but no, I dreamed I was at a party where everybody was nude and the band played, 'Yes, We Have No Pajamas.'
i'm sure many have read that before, but i never noticed it around any of the sites while browsing.
