I recently got some hitchhikers on a piece of rock with Halimeda for my new reef refugium.

I haven't planned any corals so soon, so I am still very ill informed on them.
Please help ID what I think is Protopalythoa or Palythoa or Zoanthus in that order??

My concern is palytoxin. Although I expect most corals might be toxic to some degree, I might consider tossing these if they are confirmed poisonous - at least till I know better how to handle them.

+ 1 on paly's. My understanding is they all contain palytoxins. Use gloves, glasses and mask when handling - if not using gloves just wash hands properly. As pointed out above spread rapidly. Keep them isolated if you don't want them to take over.
