I've read a few things on how to get them out of your LR
. (mine comes in tomorrow =]) You can do a quick freshwater dip and they should come running out, I've also read that a saltwater dip in water with a specific gravity of 1.03
will make them run out into the bucket. I'm not sure how it affects the declicate inverts/corals/bacteria on the LR
, that's just what I've read. I'll be curing my LR
in a large rubbermaid tub, so hopefully I can find the buggers if they're in there. As for bristleworms, I recently learned this myself. Some are good, they eat detritus and stir up your sandbed a little bit to get the water down to the anoxic areas. A few species, apparently, are coral eaters, so if you want corals, you'll have to get rid of them. Which they are and what they look like, I couldn't tell you. Try google'ing "bristleworms" and see what you come up with. Hope this helps ya. Anyone else, correct me if I'm wrong.
