    glad i only have one of them, although it sounds like they are a creature of the sea and in a small number relatively benign, this one is located where i can extract it pretty easy. thanks

    It wont really hurt anything.But the webs it can produce,can irritate nearby corals.
    If it starts that,just a glob of superglue gel over the top of its tube.
