Zoanthid eating worm with pics

Recommended Posts

WTF. This thing killed this entire colony of zoanthids. Have no idea where it came from.

 

Is this a bobbit worm or a medusa worm? It has a claw like thing that extends from the tip, appears to scrape the zoanthid and then the claw thing goes back into its body and repeat.

That is a peanut worm.  It's not really a claw it's a feather duster like head.  It uses it sort of like an elephant trunk.

I would think so..... They are good guys.  

 

I cant grow zoas for the life of me so don't feel bad.
