Hypo-Slainity to kill Vermetid Snails?

I have recently purchased some LR. I noticed some webs on the LR, did a search and apparently I have Vermetid Snails. Has any one been successful in killing them with a Hypo-Salinity treatment?
I am using the live rock to cycle my tank. There is nothing else in the tank that the treatment could harm.
Any thoughts?

Maybe a dumb question but why kill them? I don't see any harm that they have created in my tank.

I haven't found any way to get rid of them. Now I just cover them with corals.

If you do hypo in your tank everything on/in the live rock will die.

No, those look like feather dusters or tube worms. Good for the tank and an indication that all is well.
