While not as exciting as coral spawning, this is the first I've seen of spaghetti worms spawning. They normally keep a low profile in my tank, though it's fascinating to watch them build their mounds with those thin tentacles. This one decided to climb up out of the substrate and periodically inject a white fluid into the current. Later, back into the sand he went, to resume his normal existence.

ok, my turn to learn...where do they come from? Do they come in on the live rock? Is that the critter that lives in the sand and the part you see likes like hmmmm a very very skinny starfish that never moves? I don't think I have ever seen one. And what kinda camera did you use to get that close up. My digital goes fuzzy within 2 feet LOL

Edjamacate me. LOL Like that word?

I used a Toshiba PDR-M60 2.3M pixel. not the best camera for the job. I wish I had....... Actually, what would be good for closeups?
I'm one of "those" whom lfs's probably don't like, because I stare into the tank for 30 miutes and then ask for spaghetti worms or little featherdusters, or a frag of zoanthids floating around, stuff they don't normally sell! And yeah, I thought aliens had invaded when I saw him bowed up out of the sand. I just wish I'd gotten a better shot of the fluid he ejected, as it looked so much like, well, you know.
