ANNOYING FEATHER DUSTERS!
 
Does anyone know any inverts that would eat these annoying worms..I have mithrax crabs, but I don't know if they will get the job done.. Any advice would be well appreciated..

i am not aware of one that will. but they are just something you have to deal with in a saltwater tank.

Depending what you have in the tank some if not all species of triggers will eat them.

This is the first time I have ever heard anyone call feather dusters annoying. Everyone I know thinks they a re a sign of a succesful tank that has fully matured. Not only that, but as filter feeders they help remove wastes from the water preventing algae growth.

I guess there is nothing I can do..Triggers would maul my mithrax crabs.
Thanks for thew responses

My copperband butterfly ate some of mine....that is before my Tang killed the copperband :twisted:

well copperbands and tangs souldnt go togther in the same tank for that reason. copperbands are hard to keep anyway, once thier food it gone, they dont really eat.

White, what kind of purple coral is that? I like it.

Yes I would like to get a butterfly but the fish store said it would pluck at my corals as well.

I agree with what Mike wrote. What exactly is the problem with them?
