Good info thank you! Melanarus wrasse will eat them for me?I would get rid of it and any others you may have imo . They can harm corals as they brush up against them as they move around the tank at night . I’ve personally experienced damage to blastos and mushroom coral in the past . I’ve pulled bristles out of a large magic carpet . You can trap them , put in a melanarus wrasse , and arrow crabs to remove them . Imo I would be proactive to remove them and be more careful not to bring them in to the tank .
I would use manual and trapping removal first and if you have the room for and like a melanarus wrasse they will eat them . However just like any other problem that we may have in the tank using fish or invertebrates to take care of a problem can be hit or miss depending on the specimen. I’ve used foxface rabbit fish in the past for eating green bubble algae while most eat it with no problem I did have one that wouldn’t touch it . Traps do work but I found the combination of the traps , manual removal , and the melanarus wrasse worked the best for me . For manual removal I used a 1/2 inch tubing about 6 ft long and sucked them out at night with the lights out using a red light . Start the siphon into a five gallon pale and control the flow with your thumb over the end of it while moving it to one worm after another . I would only suck out as many as I could get with about 3 gallons of water each night then replace the water with new made up salt water . You will get a lot of them this way but doubt you’ll get them all and that’s where the trap and the melanarus wrasse come in to help finish the job . Night time is the best time to get them and to see just how many you have . Good luckGood info thank you! Melanarus wrasse will eat them for me?
