You will need to take them out. They are quite sensitive fish so treat them as you would seahorses. Be sure you treat with hyposalinity, not copper.

Cheers
Steve

Kick ick = bye bye for the fish usually. It is a very hit and miss treatment that rarely works. There is no such thing as an effective reef safe treatment. Anything safe for corals and inverts is usually safe for the parasite as well...

What foods are you currently feeding the pipes?

Cheers
Steve
