Emergency thread !!!

I drank 1 good mouthfull of tank water during a water change, I used my mouth to prime the tube for doing water change...


My tank is a zoa dominated tank... Does the water contains palytoxin or I should be ok ? Don't want to finish at the hospital tonight


I don't feel anything not normal in my mouth or lung (I did this 5 mins ago.)

You should be alright I'm pretty sure the palytoxins are only released when the zoas are stressed if anything does happen and you start to feel short of breath go to the hospital and tell them everything

Ok thanks, after the 5g (of the 20g setup) the zoas were still open, so when I swallowed the water I don't think they were stressed.... (I swallowed the excess reef water AFTER the water change)

Thanks for help

Update, after 25min I don't feel anything anormal, except the salt taste in my mouth...
