Bristle worm trap

I used a mesh sock(normally used for filters), put meat inside of it and low and behold every day less and less worms in my tank

That was on my first tank, 30 gallon haha long time ago. But it actually worked. They would push there way in the mesh and got trapped inside. Every 12 hours or so I would empty it and restart.

This was a very old post that I made a comment on. Moderators turned it into a new post. Some people do not want any kind of worms in there tanks, and this is a good way to get them out.

Was just curious. I would figure the only reason you didnt want bristle worms in your tank is if you were running your fingers through the sand bed.
