    They look like snakes with little tentacles. They are hiding out in the filter area of my Biocube tank. They are growing pretty quick. Good Bad?

    I noticed these white spaghetti looking things with purple tentacles on the ends growing long in the filter section of my biocube near my protein skimmer. LFS says might be spaghetti worms? Could this be? are they bad? Why are they not in my tank and hiding in the filter compartment? Please help.

    Just wondering if there are any forms of algae that can be encourgaged in a saltwater aquarium. I am referring to the ones that look like plants. I think my tank will look a lot better with some. Will it also benefit by keeping nutrients down and providing oxygen?

    I'm a new reefer and I found what I would consider a bristle worm on the cheato in my refuge. I've read that most worms are typically ok as long as there are not too many, but that there are types that are not so good to have. Do I have a "good" bristle worm or a "bad" bristle worm?
