Question:
I have an a ton of sand pallys in my DT and I want them gone. They are super aggressive and have taken over half of my 80 gallon DT.
How does one dispose of toxic corals safely?
I've been told by some to just throw them away including the rocks, but to me, that doesn't seem very safe because then others could come in contact with Pally toxin. Does anyone know if there is a way to neutralize the toxin?

Bleach. I used to have a link to the CDC publication, but seems they moved it. Did find this article while i was trying to find it and they reference the CDC bleach recommendation.

There's a ton of miss information out there regarding this, can you post a reliable source?
Like talon said bleach the rocks. Then lay them out in the sun. Or that’s what I always did. Sunlight will break down most of the stuff that’s toxic. Or at least it has in my experience. Dad always bleached his rock abd left it in the sun on our porch. I’m using it now with no issues.
