The big ones are awful. Basically killed my periwinkle monti and several trumpet heads. Stressing my mushroom out hardcore. I'm thinking about trying a 6 line in them...always advocate against animals to solve problems but I'm struggling with them and can't manage it on a 6 day work week.

I know of nothing. I've read reports of butterflies, coris wrasse, and 6 line...but I'll be honest those are reports from the early 2000's and cant find anything much newer.

I have been doing Alot of reading up on them this weekend. There isn't much out there in the way of beating them. People say get a six line or I'm not sure of the proper name but it's a yellow wrasse. Most everyone says you just have to take the time and brake them off and kill the actual worm.

I figured as much. Sadly, a 6 line is out of the question since I have a McCoskers flasher wrasse in QT right now.

How often do you feed? They are filter feeders so if you cut down on food and don't stur up the sand bed too much they should starve out some what. Theoretically.

I feed mysis, nori, and soon phytoplankton daily currently. I suppose I could cut down on the food I give the tank, but I am trying to keep my nitrates from hitting 0ppm

I'm not saying it works but that was one of the things I was reading on other forums and Web pages. Trust me I'm no expert. Lol

The biggest issue with starving things out is that we keep things that we want to consume that material, like feather dusters in this case.
