Do you know your Ca level ?
If it is low raise and test your Mg.
Low Mg will deplete Ca from water column.

Do you have lots of growing sps corals? Or even just lots of soft corals that are growing rapidly. They could be out competing the coraline for calcium.

Why get rid of the worms? Theyíre very beneficial

I️ only have soft corals growing right now. And there are about 4 or 5 worms in there right now and some of them look to be about 3 inches is that okay?

as long as you stay in the range of 1.021 and 1,026 your right in the center of the salinity scale at 1.024 that is a perfect medium IMO

Bristol worms serve 2 purposes the first is a member of the clean up crew . the second is when you see them getting large and multiplying thats a good indicator your over feeding

those tiny stars are fine in small numbers if you see the numbers increasing you can control that during water change just siphon them out there more annoying than anything else.

as for CAL check MAG like stated above than go from there

How often are you doing water changes? What are your nitrate levels at? Iíd suspect this is simply from lack of reintroducing elements into the system via weekly 10% water changes.
