    Hey guys, Hopefully someone can help me out. I looked in my refugium yesterday and I noticed some reallly really thin looking worms, thinner than string, like dental floss in the fuge. Some are red and yellow but all of them have black stripes going horizontally. There are ALOT, not sure if I...

    edit: Found some Chaeto at Bio Reef I have found no evidence of any bristleworms in my tank at all. I have checked at all hours of the night with a red light, left a SMALL piece of raw fish (from a feeding) in over night and it was still there next morning when I removed it etc. If anyone...

    Hello all, I have seen these at night and I have posted a pic but will try to describe them for you as best as I can since they are a quite reactive to light and retract almost as soon as it comes on. :worm: The tenticle (for lack of a better word) looks almost like the little snorkle thing on a...

    In the words of Timon (Lion King) "IT STARTS" Tonight I started to build my tank. It's an 8 gallon Oceanic. It's currently being set up at my house, but it's final resting place will be my office. I won't add any fish until it moves to my office. But I will be adding corals and inverts as...

    I posted these pictures on the hitchhikers page, but I'm going to post them here too to see if anyone here can help me ID these things. I got 20 more lbs of live rock earlier this week that I'm curing right now. Tonight I saw a really nasty looking white worm on the bottom of the tank. I'd...

    Well I have an 80 gallon reef and all its coral seems to be doing really well exept for my Polyps. I was told that it could be because they are being exposed to way to much light but i only have my lights on for 8 hours and everything else looks great. Anyone else got any ideas?

    Well I got a 55 gallon tank this weekend from a guy that had used it for a freshwater tank. Everything was pretty dirty and needed some cleaning up but nothing too bad. It had a bunch of stuff with it but I am only using the tank and the stand. Here is the tank and stand when I got them.

    I know regular bristle worms are no harm, but i found this little guy who moves really fast while wiggling like a sidewinder snake, he is a redish color with a bright yellow dot on every segment of his body, and his head area is longer than the others too, none of the other BW look like him...
