Ok so I am paranoid about Heliodiscus Pf Toxica, are these it?

I am back in the hobby after a long decade and got a bunch of corals. Tank is doing great but I remembered some palys are toxic. $&@/ I just got some palys last week! Did I just get the toxic ones?

I think almost all palys have varying levels of toxin in their slime. Use gloves or be very cautious when handling them, or when you might encounter any if the slime.

Correct. There isn't a specific paly that emits toxins, you want to be cautious with all Paly's.
