Snail. Check the ID forum for the trapdoor spider thread i started. The exact name is in that thread.


Basically it's a snail that lives in a tube. It spits out a strand of webbing, catches #### on it, sucks it clean, and then spits the thread out. Unless you have a lot of them, they don't cause any problems and they clean the water a little for you (very little at a time)

if its one of those worms you will see a fiarly wide tube that it builds to live in, and it has two antenna n contracts like a snail. i have a lot of them and they are so annoying! They junk the crap out of my tank b/c the webs get so dirty~
