Looks like a cinnamon Paly to me.

^That look about right?

Most palys/zoas aren't toxic to the touch, only when you start cutting them up. There was a really nasty green one i heard about though that was super toxic even with the slightest touch.

It's a Hawaiian palys that is only found on Maui that is so dangerous. It was used by the Hawaiians much like the poison dart frog in the Amazon.

Guess I better stop eating them!

For real though, how bad are they if some slime gets into a cut? I once was bothering my zoas and got some slime on a sore on my finger. I felt ill later that night. After reading these posts, could that be the cause, or am I being a hypochondriac?:p

Guess gloves should be used, huh?

i rekon theres prob about a thousand things in a salt water aquarium that you wouldnt want getting into a cut on your body.. but yeah.. theres a fair chance that this made you feel a little sick.. id also consider that theres about a thousand things in a cut on your finger that you wouldnt want in your salt water tank either.. im on the search for some arm lenth gloves .. like the ones that farmers use to "help" Cows with.. not sure im going to find them in the metro area of melbourne too easily tho.

The good doctors sell them. Palytoxin is a real concern with Palys and Zoos, so a little preventions is well worth the price. Better "Dead" then sorry....OOPs I mean better safe then sorry.

If i remember you just get all the symptoms of a really bad flu and the stomach flu. Always wear gloves and eye protection when cutting zoas. I had a friend lose vision in his eye for a day or so after getting palytoxin in there.
