    There was someone else on the site that posted this a couple days ago and as far as they said they don't warn about the dangerous/deadly toxins those corals release when disturbed.

    I really think it depends on the lfs. We have 3 Lfs in my city and at least 1 of them warns you, but I'm unaware about the other 2. I really agree they should tho.

    It ir more common in palythoa genus which i forgot what was called. Some zoas and palys don't have as much but not much info is known about all of the certain types. I however know that the uglier brown looking plays are the most likely to be toxic. It is honestly no reason for me to never put a zoa or paly in my tanks. For new reefers i say dont be scared of palytoxins but keep a healthy respect for it never boil rocks or frag them without gloves.
