Unfortunately I tend to forget stuff like gloves when playing with the tank...LOL
Yea I tend to never where gloves but I am extremely careful handling things. Here is an article I read a while back. He boiled some, but the symptoms are serious and he explains it well in his own experiences.
Palytoxin can cause cause serious health problems and even death. If you think you may have came in contact with the poison then I wouldn't hesitate to seek medical attention immediately. Problem is most doctors aren't very familiar with it because they probably don't freak with it often if ever in their career, unless you live by the ocean I suppose.
