How do these things breed? The aquarium's only been set up for month one, to get so many of them replicating in my overflow seems odd, no?

I don't believe brittles have any issues with being exposed to air. Linkia's and those sponge looking ones seem to have air problems. Not sure if anyone answered your earlier question, but don't worry about touching a brittle. Just feels like sand paper. Will not harm/hurt you, even full grown.

Most likely they came in on your live rock and you had a lot more of them then you thought. When the lights are out they will move all over the tank. The fact that you have lots of them and they seem to be multiplying is a good sign for your system.
