How to kill

I have positively i.d. a syllidae worm (small and white....actually multiple) attacking my leather. How can I get rid of them? Any good chemicals that are reef and invert safe?

I cant remove the rock strictly do to its size.

Buy a worm trap. It's probably the best idea.

And use a coral cleaner on your corals before you introduce them. I've heard good things about 'Revive'.

Ok, I'll see what my LFS has in the line of traps. If they have coral dip I pick some up and dip the coral. It's in a easily accessible place so all I'll have to do is break the glue.

all you need is a 16 or 20 oz soda bottle cut off the top and turn it around and put it in other section of the bottle , now you have a instant trap

37 gal bow front (saltwater)
octopus 150 skimmer
external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph
in line UV sterilizer

30 gal (brackish)
bio filter
under-gravel 2 power-heads 250gph

30 gal hex (freshwater)
bio filter
under gravel 2 power heads 170gph

Who ever said keeping fish was easy should have there head examined
It's more like a full time job !!!!

Too late :( I already popped on the coralife bristleworm trap. Along with this i am using the coral itself as a trap since the worms are attracted to it. Once the cling on I'm just pulling the coral out and removing them with tweezer.

Already got two out at around 1.5"

Thanks for the advice
