Probably...there are several different varieties, but they all look like something you would spray for if they showed up in your kitchen!

Lol. If my kitchen looked like my refugium I'd move out!

Haha, well I hope they are pods!

On the other hand, as some of you know, I am an EXTREME worrywart. Today I moved my little zoa frag without gloves, but some can be deadly poisonous, right? I am so worried I will go blind or something, lol. What do you all think?

I never use gloves. I stuck my hand in a tank of freshly introduced zoa frags once. My arm stung for a little bit. But nothing else.

Ok, you can't go blind or anything, right? I know it sounds extremely silly, but just want to make sure. Thanks!

Any thoughts on how much pure ammonia I should dose for the 125g?

Thanks!

Edit: (Thought I was in my 125g thread when I posted this, LOL.)

Different people have different sensitivity. The back of your wrist or arm are more likely to get stung as the skin is less calloused than your hands. Don't rub your eyes or anything before washing your hands. As a diver and reef keeper much of my life, I have only been stung by fire coral and sea wasps in the ocean. And that wasn't too bad. We don't keep those things in our tanks.

Thanks, I washed my hands pretty well. I also attempted to wash my arm, but that was only quickly. A few minutes ago my arm was a little itchy, but it isn't any more.
