Well, I know I have bristle worms in my tank. What I saw today was large and fuzzy. It looked to be about 4 inches when it was stretched out. Could it have been a fire worm?? Would that try to eat my trumpet coral? Either way, if it was a good worm or a bad worm, I'm glad it's gone- just in case it was bad. And I was stupid and didnt take a picture of it before it got washed down the drain.

Some people like cucumbers better pickled.

I'd remove the emerald crab. I had one and it mowed down my waving hand Xenia little by little till the only thing left was the mat.

Common bristle worms don't eat healthy coral. If you have big worms roaming around in plain sight, you are definitely overfeeding.
