    I'm sorry, I know I assassinated the word...these are the tubes about 1/4+ inches long that stand out about 90 degrees to the live rock, and spit out long webs to draw food in with. I am a newbie and didn't understand what I was seeing. By the time I got someone to look at them, they are now ALL over the tank. I break them off as I can get to them, but many are in impossible to reach areas.

    Is there a natural predator for these? My tank is 75 gallons with mostly peaceful fish. I would add a fish if I thought it would help. Or is there something else?

    You can also super glue the tubes shut if you can't reach them to break them off.



    I don't know of a natural predator, either.

    As long as they aren't growing on the corals, I wouldn't worry about it. Some of my corals encrusted them closed. I have a butt load of them and have not had any issues besides I know what they are.
