    I found them t be great cleaners... They will eat left over food or anything that has died or is on its way. I would however remove the large ones if and when gou see them

    I was concerned when I started noticing quite a few in the earlier stages of my tank, but they never got that big and just crawled around harmlessly in my sand bed and whatnot. Never bothered, or interfered with anything.

    like everyone said.. harmless in most cases
    if they get too big or unsightly.. you can remove them and put them in your sump.. they are great little cleaners.. they get everywhere he he

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    They will most likely be harmless, just leave them as it is and after some time you won't even notice them. No need to clean them up unless it really bothers you!
