Tube worms.

Just a quick question, in having thousands of sharp tube worms all over my rock and in my overflow a good thing or should I get rid of as many as I can.

Thanks

Probably vermitid snails. Go to town crushing them. They do no real harm, though the mucus strand they put out can irratate nearby coral.

Hemostats, heavy tweezers, some have luck with super glue. I've heard bumblebee snails eat them, and seems to have worked for me, but I don't have proof.
