Chitons

Hey guys.

Question for you all.

I have chitons in my tank, came on an import of live rock out of fiji a couple years back. Sure they eat algae of all sorts but my issue is the scratches they leave on my acrylic tank. I really want to get rid of them.

The tank is currently down for a move and I am sanding out all the scratches and the rock and livestock is in a holding container.

How would you get rid of the chitons. I remember reading about high salinity salt water baths about a decade ago that drives invertebrates out of the rock. Not sure if this would work. I also considered letting it dry out for a few weeks, but that would destroy all the good stuff on the rock.

Thoughts?
