It was actually a good piece this morning. Not the alarming, end of the hobby type of drama that many people predicted it could be. Thankfully the Tanked guys was just a clip from their show, not them trying to "educate" the masses.

I wish, this isn't really a secret in the reefing community. If anything it could drive sales for people looking to poison someone...

This is only one of those 'pull on the heartstrings' stories. As Mebbid said, anyone in the reefing community is aware of this toxin and with any type of research into what they are doing and/or keeping will be no stranger to any of the 'dangers' in the hobby itself. That is why when my wife told me that there was a story on the news about my saltwater hobby I laughed and said 'Yes, I heard about that "person"'...of course there was a grand insult to the intelligence of that person that went along with that, but that is the point. Just in our small community here we always scream to the high heavens about the toxins and to NEVER boil live rock because of the CHANGE that a zoa or paly had been on it at some point.

I think that there is still a lot of ignorance out there, so I would never assume everyone knows. It was a big enough deal that the CDC reported on it. That was last week. The guy on GMA was from several years ago. He was the only one GMA could track down because he had done the article for AA and they found that.
