    Josh Roberts (decadence) palytoxin

    Yah when josh saw the doctor treating Him she told him all she knew about it was what she read on Google and Wikipedia. She also said she had no clue what to do or how to treat it and all she can do is treat the symptoms. He also had the CDC come in and talk to him about the exposure. He told me the pump he was using was a mesh modded skimmer pump that aerosoled the toxin. I'll let him know about this thread so he can put his input in. Thanks for all your concern and prayers.

    The dog and his son were the least exposed including his wife. After staying the night at the vets and being hydrated and treated his dog was able to come home tonight.

    Josh Roberts (decadence) palytoxin

    It was producing micro bubbles and really agitating the water. He is staying one more night in the hospital. He could barely walk and had to be pretty much carried into the hospital yesterday

    Josh Roberts (decadence) palytoxin

    josh would probably be able to tell you better. From my understanding he had gotten some rock from someone and had left it sitting in a cooler with no circulation or heater since the person said there was nothing on it he didn't think it would be a big deal. When he took it out of the container and put it into the tank he had powerheads blasting on it and water was splashing and as the water evaporates it released the toxins. They had fallen asleep and woke up with muscle stiffness, it was hard to breathe and coughing, his oxygen was low, bp was through the roof, shakes, delirious.

    Josh Roberts (decadence) palytoxin

    He had placed a rock in a holding tank and was blasting it with a power head and was causing a lot of water agitation. He had no idea that there were palys on the rock that had started to die and decay and when he placed it in the water the toxins were released and became airborne from the water agitation as a vapor. He was in a building with poor ventilation and had no clue that the palys were disinigrating and releasing the toxins at a high level. Right now he is stable and staying the night in the hospital. I went over and took car of his tank after I left the hospital. Thanks for the prayers.
  9. Hey just wanted to let everyone know that Josh Roberts aka decadence and his family and dog were poisoned by palytoxin. He was putting some live rock he recently got into a tank. Palys had died off and released the toxins into the air. Josh and his family were exposed to it for 6 hours without them knowing. In the morning his wife and baby went to the hospital and have since been discharged for symptoms. Josh went later and is currently on oxygen among other things and will be staying overnight in the hospital at the moment. Please keep him in your prayers.

    I am in LOVE....JF Beach Bum Monti

    Yah I think the guys name was John that I had talked to. Jason cut it way to soon before letting it settle in. It's a gorgeous piece and a shame that everyone is so quick to frag it up to turn a profit instead of growing it out in the hopes more will be able to get a piece. By far one of the best montis I've ever seen and a shame that it will Probably never be seen again at a decent price. Jason lives up by the PA/MD line and is super strict about who he let's know where he lives and see his tanks

    The worst part is he sold 3 frags and they were about an inch each for $125. Then everyone went crazy over it and he jacked the price to $500. There is someone else in MD who has a piece but I forget his name.

    SPS STN I cannot figure it out

    I'm see no nitrates I haven't checked for nitrites but hadn't changed my filters in 8 months and I knew we get chloramines in our water. No change in light or flow
