Here's my original colony. Not very exciting when Reefrunner starts the thread with some of the most colorful ones I have ever seen. It started with about 20 zoos and 5 yellow polyps. I now had around 50 zoos and 20 yellow polyps. I feed them Kent ZooPlex with a syringe every other day, and I feed my fish "mush" daily that should give the zoos something. The really started taking off when I started using the syringe. Every couple days I see a new colony form.

Coincidence? Most likely since you're still alive to type this post 8O . Seriously, getting poisoned by palytoxin isn't a common occurence. It can get in through your eyes, mouth, or an open cut or sore. I usually use (when I don't forget) the latex gloves like doctors use. You can get them cheap at the drugstore...use a pair and toss them. Here's an example of how you can get poisoned by palytoxin. This happened to Anthony Calfo who wrote "The Book of Coral Propagation". He was fragging some poylps and used a towel to dry his hands after cutting the poylps. He later forgot about the towel and used it to wipe his face. His mouth was numb for a couple of days. I just want everyone to be aware that there is danger. It's kind of like using a table saw...if you know it will cut off your fingers and you take the proper precautions, it's not so dangerous.

I hear that, loganj..I am glad to be here, upright and sucking air.

The blue centered ones are my faves.

I must say it is even cooler to keep and raise them, now that I am learning about their secrets!

And to think I thought they were mushrooms when I first saw them..
