Possibly a coincidence but I'd sure take precautions! My allergy/asthma specialist has added a section to his 'approved pets' sheet disallowing reef tanks due to palytoxin. Exposure definitely makes my asthma worse as shown by objective peak flow measurements on days I'm changing water or messing with the tank. I bought a bunch of simple dust masks and wear one when I'm going to be in the tank.

A month is a bit short for the dirty method, are you going to go clean? Definitely run a lot of carbon.


28g cube, CF 105watts! Tunze 9001. Tiny frags: Euphyllia, blasto, ricordea and a rock flower anemone. Lost fish and inverts due to ongoing outbreak of dinoflagellates.
