    Why you don’t cover your mouth? If you get some in your mouth while you re talking? That is not the some if you get it in your eyes or cut? Al so I read the is airborne too correct?

      Airborne cases involved the person(s) affected scrubbing the polyps off of rocks while running under hot, steaming water.

      It is possible to get squirted while cutting, but far more unlikely to cause issue if you spit it out. Absorption through the eyes or lungs is much, much faster and far more likely to cause serious issues.

      My mouth was closed during fragging. I voiced over for the video. Getting palytoxin in a cut, eyes, or mouth is not good at all and every safety precaution should be taken into consideration and seriously. There have been many instances where a hobbyist would boil live rock. This is a big NONO. This can also occur when using a band saw to frag. Proceed with caution

    You need a much finer tweezers/forceps. Try to get splinter forceps.

    There crap grow like weeds ,toxic neurotoxin very dangerous , it not over kill it's under kill. I would recommend no one keeps the in there aquarium and shops don't sell them. If your fraging like that you have palytoxin on your scalpel slip and cut your selve good chance you won't make it to the hospital !!!

      Garry Mcgrath some grow very slowly apart from the cheap ones. I’ve fragged with no protection on (not recommended whatsoever) and been absolutely fine. I personally love zoas as do so many others so why try and put people off?
