Do you by chance have a picture of the worms? Could be harmless or not, no way to tell for sure.....

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

Ive looked them up, i dont think they are harmful. Not bristle worms. Think they are called whip worms. Ill post a pic when i get to her house.

I think that whip worms are internal parasites in cats and dogs.

Are they in the sand sticking out and just kinda flop side to side in their pursuit of food?
