    Why do you want to get rid ???, there's only a few of them that are undesireable, and its only when they get huge that they become any kind of a threat. They are good for your tank, excellent scavengers. And they are nocternal, although even then they are usually hard to see. After lights out, get a torch with a red filter of some kind and then look in the tank, most things cant see red light!, but you can see them, you will see loads more life than in the day ( if you have alot of L.R, or very good quality). I personally find the stuff living in and on the L.R alot more interesting then the fish and corals :*) .

    I agree wholeheartedly there. I still am nowhere near close to Identifying all of my critters. The biggest problem is that some stuff is so small I cant photograph it to show anyone.
