I was told the dragon eye can be toxic. Not sure if that's true but it's worth looking into

Zoas actually can be poisonous....my friend who works at the LFS has a tank where the rock is completely covered in zoas, mostly rare expensive ones. He frags them a lot and the one time he must have rubbed one too much and touched his eye afterwords. His hand got swollen as well as his face/eye, he ended up being partially paralyzed and blind on the one side of his face! This slowly wore off and he is absolutely fine now. I think he told me that the more brightly colored ones would be the more poisonous ones and its pretty rare that it will poison you. Just remember to wash your hands after handling them! haha

google paly toxin.
all zoas and palythoa are potentially dangerous. just don't take them out of the tank and squeeze them on to your peanut butter sandwich!
seriously though, if you are going to be fragging, like the above story, you should use a face shield, because when cutting them, they can squirt. also gloves if you have sensitive skin.
