I leave them in my reefs, never seen them hurt anything coral or fish related and they seem to eat any leftovers / keep the small nooks in the rock cleaned out. The only issue I've ever had with them is when re-aquascaping. If you get stung by one they freaking hurt.

If you get stung use vinegar to dissolve the bristles. The area will be very tender for a few days.

I try to get them all as I "believe" any in the system can spread throughout the entire system (so out of the fuge and up into the DT)
