new zoo rock, released some crap.

Hey I just got this new rock of zoa's and when I was placing it I must have done something and I dont know if it was the zoa's ( dont think its possible ) or just sand or junk from the rock, but it was milky and dissipated very fast. This isnt the palytoxin right? That is on the zoa's themselves and not released...

Im a freak about that kind of stuff

I'm no expert but I don't think it is the palytoxin. I have kept different kinds of zoos and never heard of that happening. But I also have some rock that emits a milky-stringy substance into the water every once in a while. It rises and dissipates - just as you said ..

Everyone tells me it is probably a worm of some type, living in the rock and moving about, spitting junk out.

Thats what I though...with all the reading I do on zoo's you would think I would be confident with knowing a thing or two...always good to have second opinions.

I have seen zoos send out that type of substance. I always assumed it was the toxin. It has never bothered me though. I try to wear gloves when working with zoos though.

I'm with ellisz on this one too. I've noticed it a couple times on a colony of zoas when I'm trying to get it positioned "just right." I've also assumed it's something bad, and assumed the zoanthid was telling me it was done playing, so I listened to it. I also use gloves whenever handling.

I've had the same colony do it to me three times, with no ill effects on it or any other inhabitants.

Oh gees, now Marc is going to get rid of all of his zoos. :P

I've never seen any of my zoos giving off the white stuff, and I have really knocked em around a few times. Marc, good thing you go those gloves.
