Question Toadstool shedding

Will his shedding harm the other corals or fish in my tank?
It is the second time it's done this in about three weeks.
He is looking more prickly now, maybe he is about to show
Polyps? I can hope. My chili really grew last nite. My timer did
Not work today so my lites didn't come on till 6 and I could really tell
They weren't as happy.

They release some mildly toxic chemicals so a water change after a shedding is ideal. As long as the shedding doesn't drape over other corals there shouldn't be any major issues.

Agreed, consider adding an addition powerhead if you have lower flow to make sure no draping happens when you aren't looking.

Here he is tonite, getting pricklier if that is a word
and shedding as shown. Is he looking alright?
