In our 120 gal. reef we have an abundance of feather worms. These guys are spreading like wildfire, we are just wondering if this is something to be concerned about or if this is a good thing. even the sump has them. Any thoughts?

They're harmless filter feeders. It probably means you have some excess nutrients in the water. But nothing bad.

+1 I'm dealing with the same problem right now. Work had me tied up for over a month and tank maintenance slacked, skimmer not working right, started to notice some algae.
Started doing weekly water changes again and blowing off the rocks. There was a ton of crud that came off the rocks so its no surprise that I lost some of my sps coral.

But the tank is looking better, just need to stay on top of it. :agree:
