Parasites on my candy cane?


New member
Just recently i have noticed little 1mm white worms on one of my candy cane coral polyps. They only come out at night and the polyps are no longer inflating durring the day. In fact they seem to be deflating and the tissue seems to be receeding from the skeleton. Is there anything I can/should do about this? Does any one know what these little boogers are and if I remove them will they come back. Thanks for your help. I tried to take a photo of them but there just too small and dont come out on the photo. I'd say about 7-10 of them make up a ball about the size of broken pencil lead tip. Let me know if you need more info and I'll do what I can to provide it.
