Your telling me... When it walks across my 29g tank it is over half the tank... When they say that they can get up to 24" stretched out I believe this one surpasses that my a few inches.. What should I do with him.. With this size could he have killed my clam???

TIA,
James

Man, better start charging that sea monster some rent.

Have you actually seen the coral banded shrimp eat them
Yep, and big suckers to. Strutting around the tank with a bristle worm firmly snagged in his front pinchers, and lookin' real proud while dining away. He catches about two a month that I can see. I never thought CB shrimp were good for anything other than look fierce, but mine earns his rent.

a few years ago I broke down an 80 gal and as I pulled a big chunk of rock out a bristle worm at least that long slithered out of it!!!! Mine was really thin though (like 1/8 inch), so he might have been stretched all the way out...

Funniest thing was I had NO idea I had him until that day... a little unnerving to have to pull them out at that size... I wonder, what do they EAT?!!!!

Mine seem to come out and eat anything left on the sandbed. I had some Krill that was too big for my fish and it fell to the bottom. I was thinking about pulling it out and then watched a monstrous bristle worm come out and grab it. Wrapped his whole mouth around the chunk!
