2 quick questions....

Where do you guys place the thermometer in your tank? In the middle of the tank, near the top, in the sump, etc....

Also I have 1 bristleworm I have picked up in my LR. He has successfully eaten one of my button polyps in my tank and now has started eating snails. Im afraid he will try eating my chocolate starfish if hs finds it and due to the slow moving of the starfish, is this a possibility? Im beginning to not like the bristleworm...he is cool looking but that is it!!
Thanks

I have a digital therm that I read from the top right corner of the tank. I notice sometimes that my sump runs a little warmer or cooler than my display which raises about 1 degree during day and falls again at night. If you notice the same, read from the display to ensure your getting accurate info on your corals environment. As far as that bad hombre bristleworm, I dunno if he will eat a starfish or not, get a half clam shell and a chunk of raw shrimp, put the shrimp under the shell and wait. Make sure that when you raise that shell up the next day you got a net in position and your ready to be lighting fast LoL, but its a good system.

Why would I have to hurry to catch him meaning the bristle?? This worm moves REALLY slow for sure.
also all I have is the thermometers that you buy for $5 from the LFS. I just wondered about the placement. I have one about middle ways down in my tank on one side and one on the other side up towards the top of the tank. The one at the top obviously reads warmer. Just curious where I can place it to get an accurate reading.
Thanks

If the bristle is near any rock work they can dart into it quite quickly.

So far I have been able to catch him 2 times as he has been chowing on a snail and one of the small "corals" if you will....the button polyp. He buries his head in whatever and goes to town!! I may have to exit him from the tank. Dont want to take a chance on him ending up in the toilet---if he eats or touches anything other than my snails!!
