New to reef keeping and after cycling my tank for about 6 weeks and added a pair of clowns, turbo’s and hermits I purchased my firs soft coral frag. The shop keeper said nothing regarding the palytoxin that could be present and after doing some reading I was just wondering how serious the risk is.
The picture below is what I bought( a button polyp) I think.
Is this the type that carry the palytoxin and if so, what would be your advice regarding safety?
Many thanks in advance
