You can try putting it back in its tube, but most likely it is relocating. At this point in time it is vulnerable so you can also try putting it back in its tube and relocating the entire tube.

I just thought they secreted the tube as they grew but were otherwise attached to it. Did you get any pics of it out of the tube?

Were you spot feeding this animal phytoplankton by chance? Usually these tubed worms will relocate because of lack of food.

You were lucky IMO. They usually die when you see'm outta the tube IME. Something usually irritates'm when they leave. Not too much current or anything?

wow this thread filled up fast. i wasnt feeding it yet, its 2 days old(in my tank) it wasnt getting a whole lot of flow yet because i couldnt find a spot for it yet. this is probably why it came out. im hoping that itll make it through all of this. ill be sure to put it in a higher flow area and try to spot feed it some plankton.
Thanks evry1!

Edit: oh did u mean that high flow is bad? and sorry, i couldnt get any pictures as my cousin has my camera for her homecomming, ill try to get it back asap so if it does unfortunately happen again i can snap a pic.
