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

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
