Yes palytoxin is very toxic. Considered to be some of the most toxic stuff on the planet.

Wow. I will think twice before getting some. I do wear gloves in my tank, it was a great purchase. Funny, I bought them to protect against adding something toxic into my tank!

Your dog is really cute, is that a cocker spanial? Really feel sorry for both you and your wife, and thanks for sharing that. I'm sure most people after reading this topic, they would be more careful with marine corals and inverterbrates.
