Medusa Worms

These things are GREAT! The looks alone that people make when they see him is enough but actually watching him move around and eat is cool too! 8) Anyone else had any experiences with these guys?

"They process a *lot* of sediments -- animals collected during daylight hours were found to have completely empty digestive tracts, and examination of the feeding showed that these animals pass food completely through their gut within about an hour. Given that, they need a lot of sediments organic-rich sediments to sustain themselves, and unless you have a very well-established and relatively large tank that has live sand and a reasonably high bioload, these animals are a poor bet for survival in your tank.... "
From www.reefs.org
"All-in-all, however, despite how fascinating these animals are, unless you are confident of the identification of the animal, can provide suitable conditions for the animal to feed, and are willing to live with the potential drawbacks of keeping one of these animals in an aquarium, they are not really recommended for keeping in any aquarium"
