I have something that looks very similar. I don't know what it is. Hope someone replies. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160831/623ac2fd743143da3b981fbfa766b8e7.jpg

Lol, button polyps. I think most would agree they are palythoa. So yeah, they could very well be toxic. Just wear gloves when you handle them and don't brush your skin against them if you can help it.

Those are very invasive growers. I wouldn't put them in your main rock work as they can take over, they also grow very thick mats where they grow on.

Mine were hitch hikers. Im going to get some gloves now. Are they toxic to other corals?

I believe there was someone here who went to the ER from palytoxin from button polyps ?

Yeah but are they toxic to humans only or are they going to hurt my other corals?

They will not hurt your corals but will overtake any rock they can get on.

There are too many things that do that. Why can't my SPS do that lol?

The Palythoas in the picture can hurt other zoas and corals in the tank.
They have a tremendous ability to take over the rocks, reproducing fast, and they should be left alone on they own rock.
