Palytoxin resides within the tissue and is not released into the water column at will (far as I know), but can be secreted through damage, stress, and I guess reproduction. It is a complicated lil' toxin; however, there must also be absorption of it. Either way, there are other zoonotic diseases aquarists must worry about that are often found even within coral mucous, such as Vibrio Of course, tetrodotoxin, various bacteria strains, virus', and even poisonings (Ciguatoxin) are of "normal" components in a given environment, yet can be vitally detrimental and pathogenic to us humans.
