But that is not a sequence of naturals: N is a set, Fison(n) is a set, N\Fison(n) is a set, Card(N\Fison(n)) is a cardinal (in fact, equal to aleph_0 for all n in N), and 1/Card(N\Fison(n)) is again not a natural (in fact, it is equal to 1/aleph_0, or just to 1/oo, for all n in N).

I'd rather not see what other meaning we could give to that limit...
In other words, relative to what you originally wrote:
lim_{n>oo} 1/Card(N\FIS(n)) = lim_{n>oo} 1/oo
note that FIS(n) depends on n, and I'd rather do not see a justification for your step there. More specifically, I'm thinking that:
for all n in N: 1/Card(N\FIS(n)) = 1/oo = 0
does *not* entail:
lim_{n>oo} 1/Card(N\FIS(n)) = lim_{n>oo} 0
