Cool Video! My boyfriend is teasing me that he's going to have to build me a coral workshop!! (I like that idea!) I think I'm going to wait till the corals get a bit bigger before I go chopping!

Jason, I had absolutely no idea about the toxicity of Zooanthids. Thank you very much for the heads-up. I did a google search and I found this article the most informative.

Aquarium Science: Palytoxin and You: How and Why to Avoid a Deadly Zoanthid Toxin | Details | Articles | TFH Magazine

And this one, kind of scary that it's listed on a Chemical and Biological Warfare information website.


Did you know that a dose of 100 nanograms of purified palytoxin (about nine thousandths of a percent of an aspirin tablet) is theoretically enough to kill a human?

My tanks: 120 Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber, 60 Reef Pond w/floating Algae Scrubber, 40 Breeder Reef w/L2 UAS Tester Algae Scrubber
I maintain: 144 SW Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber | 200 SW Reef w/L4 Algae Scrubber
Special knowledge: Algae Scrubbers, Acrylic Fabrication
