Hey all,

Re: worms good or bad? #2
sounds like bristleworms to me! good scavengers and beneficial to tank!
if you end up with 'too many' if you can catch any (patience, a pair of tongs, and quick reactions!) there will be people who would be happy to have some im sure!

my hermnit crabs have done more damage to my corals more than any worm could do, unless you are of course referring to a graboid - they can move through the earth and rocks
