Man...there tenticles are everywhere....is there a way to get rid of them? I heard that they irritate zoos, making them close, therefore killing them. Is that correct? I only have a 29g, so I can't add another fish if a fish is the solution to the problem. They are buried in the live rock as well, just there tenticles are visible.

I know those spagetti worms are harmless. I had them at plague populations in my 45g reef, and they didn't hurt anything. They actually help your water quality. But if you want to get rid of some of them like I did because of the numbers, a 6line wrasse will eat them for sure. One took my population of spagetti worms down by about half in a couple weeks.

So fishies that eat bristle worms will also go after spaghetti worms? I have a dottyback that appears to have taken care of the bristle worms, but haven't even touched the spaghetti worms.

 

I'll leave them be if it's beneficial to the tank.
