Just a quick heads up some newer reefers have not ever heard of palytoxin.. look it up and know the concerns/risks with it.. 

 

 

Happy reefing!!

I haven't heard of it causing problems with livestock in the tank and I believe that it's mostly when they are cut that you have to really worry about it.  Just wanted to make sure you had an idea of what your working with so you can take the right precautions..

Looks like colonial hydroids. They can sting Corals and can come and go over the life of the tank.

Is it worth trying to remove them?

In my opinion, not unless they are bothering Corals.
