Now i'm scraping the sides of my 30 gallon, the algae is going into the tank. After about 15 minutes after i was done scarping about 15 million bristle worms came out of the rock, the light was still on. Now i've seen bristle worms before and they were a darker color, but no 1/2 of thier bodies seem bright orange. They all gathered on 1 rock and started squirming all over themselves. What was peculier is that they were all sqirting white crap out of their orange ends clouding up the water even more.

 

I had no idea what to do, the worms seemed to be suffering, the fish seemed a bit stressed but okay. Tons of white crap came out of the worms so i grabbed a fresh carbon and stared a water change.

 

What in the world is happening?

Thats awesome. Your so lucky to see something like that. Excellent picture.

 

This sounds like a brooding behavior for flatworms. These are not flatworms.. That white stuff could be milt, protien, poison, or substrate.

 

Look into the reproduction methods employed by annelida. I think polychaetes fall into this catagory.

 

Again, you are very fortunate to actually of witnesses something like this in your tank. It is rare. I would share your experience with some worm geeks on the internet.
