I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

What do I do to get rid of it? Or do I just live with it? Does anything eat them?

You don't HAVE to get rid of them, they can make good clean up crew. BUT I would just try to catch one when it's out or you can use a bristleworm trap.

I don't like them cause they are gross and I am always in my tanks so I freak out that I am going to get stung by one. Probably just being paranoid but I'm that kind of girl. hehe

Do they hurt anything to have them in there? Any of the fish corals or inverts?

Nope. Not that I have heard of. They are supposed to eat uneaten food and other stuff off the sandbed so i guess they have their place in the aquarium.

I'm having what I would assume to be a diatome bloom. How do I fix this? Do I need to add the my cuc? I have 6 astrea snails and 3 scarlet reef hermits. So I need more hermits? Why does this happen? Sorry the pic is sideways my phone camera is goofy. Thanks for your help in advance

Looks like diatoms, they will burn themselves out soon, not to worry.
