Hello guys
I just came across this news article about a family from Texas that was affected by a toxin released by her aquarium coral.

Below is the link to one of the articles. You can also do a Google search.

I am posting this for those of you that have that kind of corals, in case you didn't know this could happen.

Thats why Zoas have no reason to be fragged IMO. People think they can just go into Deadpool mode and slice them apart. Palythoa Toxins kill mates!

Though not all zoas contain significant amounts of palytoxin and if one follows general safety guidelines like using googles, gloves and a mask, wash everything after you are done, doing it in a well ventilated area outside of your living space I think it's relatively safe.
There was one severe case in Alaska I read an article about and there the involved parties were really careless. I think it was a Palythoa, those are anyway looking really ugly and I wouldn't want one in the first place.
