    I bought this live rock in excitement when I saw these guys on it bc I thought they were some type of feather duster or worm to help cleanup my tank and get it jump started but I have yet to see any movement from them so I am wondering if they are alive and/or a friend or foe. My tank cycled in...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the hobby, setting up a small 29 gallon a year ago. I'm still learning but have something going on that has me stumped - the entire bottom of my tank is covered with hundreds/thousands of what I think are spaghetti worms encased in particles of sand. I can only see the...

    I was speaking to a fellow reef keeper who has been in the hobby for many years. He told me to be prepared for "tubeworms" which have a tendency to burrow under the seals in the tank causing leaks. Anyone know if this is true and if so, is there a counter measure that can be taken against...

    I have had a feather duster in my tank for about 4-5 months and it had looked good and seemed healthy. Lately I noticed that the crown was out all of the time and wasn't retracting when snails or shrimp messed with it like before. I touched it and it did not retract. Is it dead? Nothing is...

    It appears that I have some kind of invasion of tube worms. Not sure if that's good or bad. They are small and I have counted at least 25 that I can see. Any idea about these things? I don't know anything about them. Please help!

    Hey All - I have these worms...everywhere. Usually I dont see them causing issues, But sometimes they put out lots of stringy green stuff - almost looks like algae....Any help is awesome as usual. If we can ID it, can we kill it?

    Well, I have been gone awhile, actually haven't had much going on with the tank, just pretty much left it alone. But I have had some things going on with it every once in awhile. So I decided to get your take on it. I have little white circles all over my rock, and glass and my equipment and I...

    My once thriving twin tube worm looks terrible. It used to be 2 fluffy dusters and now it is one and not so fluffy. How long do they live? I guess that info wouldn't help because I don't know how old it was when I got it. It is still busy making the tube longer ... any ideas? Pics are 1)...

    i have little white spots in my 46 gallon tank.. i have done some research and i guess they are tube worms. I was wondering if anyone knows how to get rid of them and if they would affect my fishes. My fishes seem to be stressed out.
