Do you guys think that it is worth putting in my signature that zoas can be harmful? I only ask because before I read about it in a magazine, I had no clue that they could be deadly sometimes.

Thanks for your input!

Zoas are not the only corals that can be poisonous. Most soft corals secrete toxins as well. I think that people should get into a habit of washing their before and after touching something in a tank.

Oh, really? Interesting, are their toxins as powerful as toxins from zoas and palythoas?

Their toxins are quite strong, but they have a limited way way deliver them. Their stinging cells are not powerful enough to affect most peoples skin, obviously if you rub your eyes after, or even ingest them, it would be bad. Fire coral, has stinging cells that can easily penetrate bare skin.

Everything looks nice and healthy. I wish my shrimp would display themselves...I have too much activity on the front of the reef for them to hang out all the time like yours.
