they are a pest and some people say Joe's juice works, stop aptasia or a kalk paste mix droped into the aptasia mouth. They will sting corals not sure about fish. I would get them out because they can take over a tank if left in.

i tried joes juice, it defenitly works but it's almost impossible to get to all of them. I then bought a little peppermint shrimp. He at all of them within 3 days.
