Feather dusters

Can anyone give me some ideas of what to do/use to get rid of all the feather duster tubes in my tank. I swear there are 100s of them. Thanks in advance for the help

They aren't bad things. I had a lot of them. Then I got a Black Capped Basslet, she ate them all!

when I thinned out mine I used a old credit card to scrap them off the rocks , holding a siphon hose in other hand to suck them up , they can become over whelming and annoying as they spread fast ,
I left some in as they look neat I even added large ones , over time they will thin out by themselves but that takes time , than the cycle starts over again , dusters are harmless but can over take corals too if not kept under control .
