My bristle worm (well not my big one but one that is probably a good 4" in length) lost his mind today and decided to make lunch out of my hairy mushroom. When my hubby caught him the little bugger had a hold of the shroom and had put a good size hole in it right near the mouth! There was purple oozing out of it and flying everywhere. Hubby had to rip the worm off of the shroom to get him out of the tank!
These have been such peaceful inhabitants up until now. I've loved to watch them move around the tank. They're so pretty and so graceful. Why did he go insane on my shroom?!
I'm not sure now whether to pull the big one or assume the best until he proves otherwise. I'd hate to lose a shroom to this guy!
The one that got pulled is in QT
now (the former home of the red crabs). I guess I'm off to find a new home for him!!
