sounds like watching paint dry is only slightly less entertaining than catching the worms.

It's actually kinda awesome. lol They most of the time try to go in, or get half way in and then they shoot backwards and out. It's like a battle of wits. i swear these things know something is a miss, smart little buggers

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

i've said it a zillion times and i'll say it again: just cut back on feeding and the bristle worm population will decrease on it's own.

I know, it's so hard though. My babies always look hungry. But seriously, I have cut back but I still need to remove the ones I have. I'm scared to death to stick my hand in the tank to move the rock as it is now.

you are removing the things that are helping your tank, and eventually you are going to have a problem with the excess nutrients.
they aren't going to hurt anything, trust me. you are killing things for nothing. they aren't like aptasia.

If I don't get stung then it's worth it. I have been on the 20g as far as overfeeding and water parameters. I will try to catch a few outta the 125g but I don't stress working in that tank as much since it's so large. lol I don't ever move the base of the rock structure so I don't run into them as much.

it's not "stung". it's like working with fiberglass insulation. i've been hit probably 50 times. no big deal.

LOL I never got to it. But maybe today after I get some more corals. I have a frag/reef club meeting in about an hour so I'm hopeful to come back with some goodies!
