Madman, I've felt the effects of palytoxin via an open wound in my hand. Trust me, you know you've been poisoned almost immediately. I'm sure you're fine.

Re: Zoa protection

If you are just relocting them around the tank you are fine. You stand a much greater chance of being stung by a bristle worm.
