    Lol yeah dude, Plus I had a few in my tank.

    Why do you want to get rid of them? they are safe and from my experience they dont grow wild and out of control..
    But if you wana, just try and scoop them out with a spoon.

    Not that I know of, but they do move around and sometimes move on top of zoas and annoy them. But not sure about the stinging.
