So last night I was rearranging my tank and there was a yo yo hiding in a rock I pulled out. Once I saw him fall on the floor I kinda panicked in the moment and tried to pick him up. BIG mistake, I forgot about the eye blades and got my fingers stabbed a few times. Moral of the story? Don't pick up yo yo's with your hands. It HURTS.

The same thing happened to me with one of my Y. Modesta
(Red Tail) Botia Loaches. Ouch!

I got pricked by a cory last night, it hurt too!

Edit: Cory have spines in their dorsal fins, not sure about the others.

There are still a few sore spots on my fingers too, hopefully they don't get infected

Unless it's an open wound, I wouldn't be too worried.

It is technically open; it's just basically the equivalent of being pricked by a cactus. (Very small wound) My only concern would be the yo yo having something tramsmitable to humans near its eyes since it just got a straight shot under my skin.

Then again I've been barbed by a pictus catfish before and those are venomous. I was fine when that happened so I should be good
