Pod Your Reef

Pom-pom crab eating bristleworm!


Recommended Posts

Just bought a pom-pom, which turned out to be carrying one regular pom anemone and one aiptasia, and plonked the little critter into my tank. Added a dash of Reef Roids to see if it would get excited (yes), then got distracted for a few minutes. Looked back into the tank, and it had caught a bristly snack. 






There are a few results for this sort of thing on Google, so apparently it's a known behavior. Still, cool, if a tiny bit worrying. Maybe they aren't quite as harmless as I'd thought, if they are actually predatory. Long as it leaves the fish alone, we're good.
