I thought that I would come back and mention that I still have not had any awful reaction. THank God. I was scared all day that all of a sudden something would happen. But I am okay.
What's wrong with it's size? I used to have 2 or 3 big bristle worms. I'm not sure cause they stretch so long. I decided to rip some rocks out of my tank last week cause I had some ugly white spider looking thing eating all of my zoos and shrooms
. I lost all (down to my last 3 polyps now) of what I had to the bugger, and hundreds of dollars After trying to trap the thing for the last 3 months I gave up and took the rocks out and boiled them to kill them. They didn't have any live corals or anything else that I could see, But I did try rinsing them off with some tank water and only had a couple of little shrimpy things come off. After they finish drying I am going to start over with a newer bigger tank and use them for base rock. But I did see the end of one of my bristle worms in the dead rock so I am sure I lost one of how ever many I really had.
I'm actually kinda sad that I lost one though. They are the best part of the cleanup crew I have in my tank. I see them doing more eating and sifting then I do all of my snails and crabs put together. THey come out to eat just as predictably as the fish does and are hunting around the tank as soon as the power head swirls the food into the water. Plus I think they are kinda cute. Even if they did scare me.
