  1. Hitchiker ID

    Hey Steve...Thanks for the reply. I don't remember if the legs are jointed or not. I will have to keep an eye on that. I do know that it definately uses it's antennae for sensation when moving. It has moved all over the tank to different rocks. It has now been in one rock for about two weeks. I have some small bits of LR and some empty snail/crab shells laying on the bottom of my tank. It moved these to the hole in the rock that it is currently in and stuck them all to it with what looks like cobwebs. I pulled all of it away from the hole and it was all back there the next day. It hasn't messed with anything else in the tank, ie. coral, fish, crabs, shrimp, snails. I kind of have a problem though. I told my wife that if it keeps moving things around I would have to get rid of it. She said "You can't get rid of Peedy". That's what she named it. So I hope it's not too bad of a critter because I think I am stuck with it.
  2. Acclimating?

    I haven't been able to find any good info on acclimation. Maybe I am looking in the wrong place. I searched and still didn't find anything. What I would like to know is how does everyone acclimate new things into their tanks. Like how long and what do you use. Is there a difference between acclimating fish, inverts, corals? Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Thanks for the link tgrupert. I don't see what I have exactly, but I do believe it is of the same family. I think I will just keep an eye on him. So far he hasn't done any damage.

    I finally got a good pic of this critter so here it is. It is about 5" long and 1/4" in diameter. Has tons of legs. It has two or three pair of antenna on its head and two feelers on its rear. It is very fast! This is the first time I have seen it out of the LR completely. It only comes out at night and seems to be feeding on algae. I have seen some pics of bristleworms but none of them look like this guy. If anybody knows what this is, please let me know.
