you can't remove them with tweezers. you are only ripping them open and allowing them to spread. you need to kill them with a syringe full of vinegar, boiling water, kalkwasser paste, joes juice, aptasia-X.....

they make a product called Aiptasia X that i'm rather fond of, you just squirt it on their mouths.

Peppermint shrimp will work as well. I had one and got a shrimp and two days later it was gone! Some will eat it... some wont. Luck of the draw.

Is Aiptasia-X harmful to fish? My Clowns will try and eat anything that remotely looks like food. Ill turn my pumps off when treating to stop it spreading through the tank, but i think they'll still get to try some

i once saw a tang glue his own mouth almost completely shut by eating some floating crazy glue gel. a couple days and he was good as new. you would be surprised what a fish can withstand. i think aptasia X is mainly kalkwasser anyway.....at least joes juice is. they will be fine.
