Family poisoned by "coral spores"

Recommended Posts

Fascinating! I wish they had been more specific than "well known coral". Sounds like palutoxin though.

That's why I always boil and bleach my coral before putting in the tank

Except then you will release the toxin in the water vapor (according to the article). ? Some pretty crazy stuff in there between the scrubbing and the boiling water.  Wonder if anyone has a better ID on the coral ("flower coral"?).

So coral huffing is the new toad licking eh?  Lots of interesting toxins in the marine world. We use a lot of conotoxins in our work to study channel properties. Nasty but highly useful biological tools. Don't mess with marine snails ☠️

I usually frag my leathers. Then I squeez this piss out of them and inject the juice produced. It's out of this world!!!  Once I'm finally back to reality I drive to Portland parks and drop my syringes for others to find like an Easter egg hunt.

Yep - that family has developed some crazy effective neurotoxins. They are up there with tetrodotoxin.
