ID?

Well I attempted to post a pic. But it says I reached my quota? Don't know how to fix that. But it's a pink/clear tube like work. Dug itself into the sand. About 1.5 inches long.

Not sure about the quota issue. Maybe you've posted too many pics to your albums? You can embed a pic from another site.(Photobucket etc). Is it a common bristle?

Alright, figured out the picture issue. The first pic is the see threw pink worm. The second pic is of a blue worm (read bristleworms were red). The third pic is of a coral/plant (seller said it was a feather duster, but it doesn't look like online pics and doesn't move when I touch it). It does move around the tank. And the final pic is a snail I don't know what kind. Please help with IDs!

Sorry for the pic, led + camera=fail

Thank you. Are the aiptasia easy to get rid of? I would like to get some coral. Do they sting? Lol

They are very bad for corals and once you have a large outbreak they can be a bit difficult to get rid of..if I were you I would he going back to speak to the lfs for selling you a nuisance anemone as a featherduster..but to get rid of them you can use aiptasiaX or inject them with either lemon juice or boiling water..peppermint shrimp I believe eat them also but only when the aiptasia is small not once they are the size of some of yours :/

Yes buy a couple peppermint shrimp and they will take care of it or you can buy something called aiptasia-x but I have heard that it doesn't work as well, an no corals can sting a human, well they do but you don't feel it
