So my wife hates them. SHould have never told her they were like worms.

Is there any fish that likes to eat them and there tubes? I have quite a few.

My tank is a 65g. Currently houses a midas blenny, bi color blenny, and a pair of clowns. Various SPS, LPS, and softie corals as well.

I have seen emerald crabs eat them, you'd prolly need like 10-15 and hope one eats it.

I don't know of anything that eats those. You could try smothering them with epoxy maybe.

Peppermint shrimp.
Copper band Butterfly.

By if it were me I would add about 5 or so peps, as the CB is not reef safe.

Tank already houses 6 peppermint shrimp and 12 emerald crabs. Should have included that. I did get a couple of emerald crabs that have the rare taste for taxifloria so I scored on that one I suppose.

CBB's are beautiful but to much of a risk for me.

I'd have to take apart my tank to epoxy them. Wife hated them, I don't think I hate them that much. :lol:

Thanks for the help.
