ID-PInk worm


Recommended Posts

Need to see a pic to be sure but it sounds like a common bristleworm. Run a search and it should turn up some pictures. As long as that is what it is then it is good as long as you don't try to grab it. (Been there, done that, don't want to do it again)

I have several that range from 1/2" or so long up to about 4" long. I seldom ever see them though. If I flash a light in the tank at night I can usually spot one or two but never with the lights on. The exception is if I move a rock off the sand. (They stay under the sand/rocks most of the time)


Note: There are other types of worms that can be very bad however a bristle worm will normally not be an issue. Steve Weast (One of our members) had a run in with a eunicid worm that gained a good bit of attention. Go to http://www.oregonreef.com/ and read the Worm Incident story he has there.
