!!!Urgent!!!! Worm Thing

Recommended Posts

lil_schmitts

I just brought home another piece of live rock from the LFS and was looking at it before putting it in my tank and there is a 3-4" green worm-like thing on it is this good or bad?

 

it looks like a centiped but green and in the water.

 

it was in like a gravel nest thing. i thought it was just debris so i wiped it of and he came running out.

It's likely just a bristle worm...nothing to worry about. They are helpfull and not harmful.

It's really fine....no need to remove him. Some say that if they get 6+" than it may be a good idea to move him. They are helpful to your tank.

 

The best time to see them out is at night time.

Let it be till you can snap a pic or actually see them causing havoc. Most of the worms we get with our sand and liverock are beneficial scavengers or filter feeders.
