I only remove the very large ones. I use a plastic baster to remove them. turn the lights off and wait for them to come out. then just suck them up as needed.

You shouod be looking to ID that worm then and most likely removing it. A common bristleworm will not occupy the flesh of a healthy coral, typically it will be parasitic. Does the coral slough fairly often?

Cheers
Steve

i've had the coral about 3 mths and it's shed probably 3 times.

Shouldn't shed that often really. Once every few months is somewhat common but something is definately irritating it.

Can you post a pic of the area you saw the worm coming from? Can you describe the color pattern of the worm?

Cheers
Steve
