Remember Zoa's and Palytoas give off a palytoxin that is very poisonous to humans, so use common sense and wear gloves and eye protection and wash your hands after. Last death I read on the Net happened in England where a dog eat a piece of Zoa that fell to the floor while a person was Fragging.

Thanks TC, I didn't know either. Can it kill your fish?

I don't think so. Got to remember that these animals live in water and that dilutes everything so their defense is super strong to compensate for that dilution.
Not all Zoas/palytoas are as deadly as the Hawaiian one, but who knows.
Be neat when fragging and wash your hands after.

I rescaped the rocks last week! Just now getting the pics on here though.




And some fish/coral pics:











The reef is really doing well. The dinoflagellates (dinos) have pretty much disappeared. I'm still battling hair algae. The fish did well with the rescaping...as well as the corals. Nothing new has been added lately, but I'm hoping to get more corals and a Midas Blenny next month.

Looks great. When do you put the frags into the rocks?

Thanks.

I usually move the frags when they start overgrowing the plug or little piece of rock that they are on. I don't want them to start growing on the frag rack, so I move them to the rock.

I moved 2 frags to the rock recently...need to move another.
