Since you have kalk, make a paste and cover them with it. It will kill them and coralline will grow right over the kalk.

I agree that you should get rid of them as soon as possible. Read this.

Put about a tablespoon or so of kalk on a plate or small shallow bowl and keep adding a few drops of water until the paste is the consistency of tooth paste. You don't want it too watery because it will start to slightly dissapate when it hits the water, and you don't want it too dry because it won't "stick" to the rock. Then put a decent sized dab on your finger, stick your hand in the tank and apply where needed.

Peppermint Shrimp- my 2 ate 3 big ones in a few days and I have not seen one since. They are cool little guys anyways swim all over the tank come right out when I clean. I have to try hard to avoid them when working in tank. come right to top to eat like the fish do except they are upside down
