Can you breathe that stuff in or do you have to wear a mask?

You only have to worry about breathing it in if you boil the rock. Otherwise its perfectly fine. The zoas only release the toxin when they are damaged. I.e. eaten, cut, smashed, etc. They dont release it normally.

Thats why people wear protective gear during fragging. Mask gloves and glasses.

So what fish can I keep in there if I decided get one.... My favorite fish is the yellow tang but I don't have enough room for one.

Like I said, no hobbyist has ever died from it and I can count the number or times ive heard of people getting sick from it on one hand. Its not common at all.

Do you have to wear gloves just to touch them at all?

A single clown fish is generally accepted for a 10g tank. Other than that small gobies or other perching fish would work well. A skunk cleaner shrimp would be great.

I don't. When I remember I wash my hands afterward. But I've forgotten a few times and I'm fine.

And what about xenias are they safe to touch with my bare hands and if I cut them while fraging will they release anything? I've watched people on YouTube frag them with scissors and then tie them to a plug with fishing line and they don't wear gloves at all.
