    You should really do a lot of online study on this one. Have read where whole families in up in the hospital
    trying to nuke polys. I most likely wouldn't touch them unless outdoors.

    Usually a 5 watt laser. It’s safe in the water. Doing anything outside the tank is pushing the “airborne” limits. :-) Y’all be careful. Keep them underwater.

    Ya’ll just do one pylop at a time and run carbon when you start. Zoo’s are one thing...

    If you have palythoa- ahh...you may want to just let them dry out in the sun away from the family. Not worth the risk in my opinion.
