I'm gonna stock up on zoanthids while they're still legal. This will turn into part of the war on exotic pets if folks don't be a little more careful with the dangerous critters we keep.

Not that this sort of thing is unique to reef tanks. I've read of at least one human death caused by ingestion of an eastern newt (which we have in our house, too; danger, danger!). And Mycobacterium marinum from FW tanks messes people up, also.

I've gone to the ER after inhaling freeze dried bloodworm dust, because I was having breathing issues. Can't even feed my fish without risking my life!

Thanks for the link!
