My blue zoa's just arrived....
and I'm scared to touch/handle them lol. When I originally ordered them, I did the usual research, lighting, water, etc. But what I did NOT see was the mention of palytoxin.
So when they got here, I put the bag they were in in my tank to start temp. acclimating them. I had some time to kill so I figured I would do a little extra research on them to see if I could help them spread at max efficiency. I then came across a few sites that say the species I got carried palytoxin (Blue Zoanthus spp.). Is this true?
If it is true, I know I need to handle them with gloves, but what about the DT? If they give off this toxin, won't it kill all my fish? I don't want to make a grave error (for me or my fish). What should I do?
