Hey guys, just picked up my first corals. I got two zoa frags from my LFS. Looking for an ID on what is on the side of my frag. Doesn’t looks like a zoa to me. Thanks for the help.

These have like 4 or 5 names, but I know them as Green Implosion Palythoas- they grow like *crazy* so I would recommend keeping them on an island! They’re beautiful, but you don’t want them over growing
Thank you! I’m not too sure I want it in my tank though can I pull the frag out and cut it off? I’m worried about palytoxin if I do so

They do have Palytoxin, so use gloves and glasses. Remove the frag from the tank, cut the palythoa off, thoroughly rinse it with a cup of tank water (discard used water) and return the frag to the tank :)
I successfully removed the palythoa safely :) thank you for the help
