These are palythoa toxica. I do have some in my QT system that I haven't removed yet if you want some for free as well... although I don't recommend it.

Helleoooooo!!!!!! ????
we pm'ed back and forth but maybe I missed a decision on pick-up. I still have, they are fine in a tank, just do not try and severely piss them off, and not be protected and wash up when handling. I have had in cube for years with no problem.

Palytoxins with somebody with a depressed immune system from 2 liver transplants prolly not a good idea.

I do agree with Spike, I've handled them as well with no issues. Just don't have open cuts. They are still pretty cool looking :)

Not to often, only when heading toward Ky or TN. Going to Memphis this weekend but traveling a different route.

But don't they all have the potential to be toxic? Including zoas?
All zoas/paly have some level of toxin. How ever a small group which includes these have a high level of toxin and can be dangerous. If you choose to put these in your tank just make sure you are very careful with them. I would wear gloves when handling and don't lick them or make stew out of them. If i were to frag them I would wear gloves, eye protection and probably do it outside. Also if you frag them In\ would let them all heal in a QT running fresh carbon for a week or so.

Lol Agreed that's all I was saying with that question. They are all toxic to a degree. I was more interested in seeing if they were invasive. Be cause I currently have some plays that I know can be come a pest so I've kept them on islands and they have literally detached themselves head by head and traveled across the sand bed until they find a place they like. Plz excuse the bad pics I just took em real quick. That used to be a tight cluster and they are now walking off the rock through th sand to attach to other rocks. I treat all zoas and plays as toxic.
