we need help please

OK Here goes we are having issues with something eating all our inverts. We have already caught 3 very large what we were told are fireworms all about 5 inchs or longer and about as big around as a pencil...yuck. We did a water chang and in the bucket with the old water we found hundreds of little ones not sure if they were bristle or baby fireworms they look like fireworms. We want to change the substrate from cc to something else any ideas would be great. What can we do to get rid of the worms and what is best for the bottom. Thanks Sue

Thanks all for your help! And for putting up with me!!

If the "my info" section is filled out right, from your stock list, I would suspect the crabs. The worms usually go after things already dead or dieing.

I'm actually in the process of changing my CC to playsand. I am doing it about 1/3 of CC replaced by playsand.....I already had about 20LBS of LS on top of my CC, when I set up the tank, so it is kinda of a pain to get the LS separated from the CC....I am using my plastic pasta strainer! LOL!!
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
