Sorry camera is not the best for tiny things like worms.

I'm not suppose to touch bristle worms if I remember correctly?

Thanks guys! It's turning out so much better than I dreamed it would. Guess I have a better thumb for salty than I do a green thumb for plants. Oh well we will see


Caleb
the egg crate you can get at home depot in lighting section like $15. sheet
as for rubble rock reef cleaners has base rock rubble that can be used right away as it has no die off on it I got a big priority box full for $25 with free delivery had to be 20+lbs of rubble from 1/2 inch to 3 inch pieces a very nice assortment

That doesn't look like a bristle worm it's purple and yellow not pink and white like a bristle worm.

It will technically be my wife's thread (miss TMRC) but you can guess who will be doing maintenance/ water changes/ stocking.

Further analysis suggests bristle worm. If I find him again I'll remove him because I don't want to get stung

Harmless bristleworm. Excellent member of a CUC. I have tons, there are different colors as well. My hands have been ask in my tank and sump and I still have never been stung. Dunno if I'm lucky or I'd out just really isn't that common. I have a buddy that has a ton of the huge red ones and they get him all the time. Just don't grab him I guess. LOL

^THIS^^
And where there is one likely MANY.
Watch feeding as they are "scavengers" and input to tank is best control IMO.
I have many in all tanks I think(a couple for sure,I don't look cause they are not an issue unless infesting).
