Point a powerhead at them and they will let go, then you can scoop them out and trade them in..
Not poisonous, but can spit water at you,may irritate your eyes..

Hi,I read that they don't like high flow and bright light.so did redirect the most powerful of my wave makers down onto them.i think it's has checked them,but not deterred them,the pump goes off at night and the force of the jet in the morning folds them in half,but they soon recover,also my LEDs are nigh on max for most of day,so the bit about low light preferences is also dubious..

They will adapt to the high light,need to leave the powerhead on till they release day and night..

They are very efficient in using resources. Unless you have something to take them out aggressively, take out nutrient won't be enough from my experience
