Just don't touch your eyes are any open cuts. It is a neurotoxin, natives use to put the mucus on arrow tips. I didn't know this until I read an article about a hobbiest that was boiling some live rock to sterilize it (?) that had some zoas on it and breathed the fumes. Maybe a wives tale but it supposedly killed him.

The refugium has some green water on the top. Is that just algae? See picture

Looks like green slime algae, not sure if that is a good thing or not. Looks like some surface agitation might help.

Yeah its only the surface water area right ontop of my chaeto macroalgae. Should i keep my actinic LED 18w 2600 lumen 453nm light on every night? In daytime i use the flourescent T5 6500k white for now, but am ordering 400-500nm T5 flourescent tube bulbs from coralife.
