The hardest thing about caring for x-mas tree worms is keeping the porites alive, thats the sps coral that they live in. IU dont think its too terribly difficult but i do think that MH lighting is a prerequisite generally speaking
There you have it..........
i tried keeping one before i had MH and failed and receivd another one that was delayed in shipping and was DOA..the worms lived for a few months and then kind of slowly disappeared
Bill, I need to take another picture so that you can see how much more of the rock, the Porrite has covered. See the hole where the crab is? It's totally covered over and the crab has relocated to the top.
Our petco had a few but they were in shabby lighting and I wanted to research first. None of the established tanks had mh so I decided to wait. I hope the new tank will be ready for corals in about 6 months. I pulled rock from my other three three tanks and some came with it. I will be getting some more lr next week.
The christmas tree worms for sale in my neck of the woods are about $65 for a piece that looks about 1-2 pounds if it was live rock. Looks as if there are only ten or so inhabitants. They must hide. Does anyone know where I could get some cheap(not quality) light fixtures.
