I've been dealing with a clam that at first appeared to have PM. I have been dealing with this for longer than a month. I FW dipped when I noticed its distress at the beginning and it seemed to perk up looking its normal self again. As the weeks passed after the dip it started to look miserable again, so once again I FW dipped it. After a few days it returned to normal again. This evening it appeared distressed again so I started to prepare yet another FW bath. I picked up the clam and noticed that it had released its rock it was attached to. I could actually see up in to the byssal opening and it looks hollow. While I was investigating this in the tank under water a (scared the s&^! outta me) worm of some sort came shooting out running like hell. I didnt get a very good look at it since my Wrasse seen it and picked it out of mid- water and ate it in a flash. ( Damn I Love Wrasses)
I have searched for a similar worm/ bug thing and can not come up with a match for what I observed. I know it was fast as hell, grayish purple and looked similar in body type to a bristle worm. I really cannot give more of a description due to the Wrasses fast action of consuming the b@$t&rd.
I know it's a long shot but anyone have any ideas? I have 4 more clams to worry about and want to take some course of preventive action for the others.
The clam that had the beast in it is still alive............ so far.
