Convolutriloba (flatworms) Needed... REALLY!!!

As strange as it may seem... I actually WANT these things.

If anyone in the area of Athens, GA has an infestation of Convolutriloba retrogemma, C. longifissura, or C. Hastifera, I will GLADLY come to your home/business (this includes pet stores) and siphon out as many as I physically can FOR FREE.

I am conducting research on the nature of the symbiosis between these worms and their algal endosymbionts and tend to run through populations rather quickly.

I am an experienced aquarist as well as a coral/invertebrate ecologist, so I fully understand the delicate nature of tank systems, i.e., you needn't worry about some hack coming in and flailing about willy-nilly in your aquarium.

I have no idea which ones I have, but I have 2 nano's with a ton of the rust colored ones. I was about to mail order a sea slug to eat them up. I googled the species you are after, and could not find any pictures to match.

I am arround Charlotte, NC, which is a bit far for you but if you can't find any there you are more than welcome to mine. I grow them like crazy in my 2 gallon pico, and I don't even put any food in that tank, ever, for any reason, as it is my coral frag baby tank/experiment run amock.

Let me know if you want mine, I will be ordering a sea slug sometime in the next few weeks, they they will likely be gone in a month or so.
