    I am new to keeping saltwater tanks and I was wondering if any specific types or species of zoanthids do not contain/produce palytoxins

    Im not too famailar which particular type of paly/zoa has more of the toxin but i have heard the brown palys are what really hit the hardest but you should be fine unless you start cutting them up into pieces.

    They are beautiful corals just because they have palytoxin does not mean you shouldn't keep them they are very Hardy and very inexpensive just when you friend them don't chop them up having mucus go everywhere...even if you get mucus on your hands don't rub near eyes nose or ears and wash your hands immediately otherwise you'll be fine
