Hey Ed. First of all, my apologies, I was mistaking tube worms for feather dusters - just wasn't thinking. Sorry about that. Have not had experience with tube worms. As far as pencil wrasses go, I had mine for over 2 years and he was a model citizen. He was as reef safe as a wrasse could be (but you know not all wrasses have the same temperament).
Yeah I should have mentioned that shred is correct there snails... When I hear the term tube worm I think feather dusters and this problem is a whole different creature all together.... I would remove the corals from the rock and toss it if it's a huge problem you say there is a bunch.... I have one big one I was just gonna make a kalk paste and fill the tube with it... Should do the trick I just never get around to it.... I'm guessing yours are small since there is a hole bunch????
I tried to glue them shut and it worked great for about a week and then they broke out all over the live rock they were on. They were everywhere. Irritating my anemone. I finally had to take the rock out. Vermented snails not feather dusters. That’s a whole other problem.
