What eats Hydroids

Are there any natural preditors of Hydroids that are reef safe?

Hydroids are not sea slugs, but sea slugs sometimes eat them... Sorry, I believe that is what you meant, but the statement was a little unclear to me.

Hydroids are sessile invertebrates that can reproduce quickly and smoother other more desirable sessile invertebrates such as corals and sponges...
