green inch worm

I just noticed what looks to be a green inchworm with antennas pushing the san out from under my live rock. He seemed to be about an inch long. Should I leave him in the tank? My tank is about 2 months old.

It would help us more to answer that question if we knew what it was...can you post a picture of the worm?

green inch worm

no, i don't have a picture. It looks identical to a green one inch inch worm with large antennas. It is hidden now.

Hmmm, most likely a peanut worm.

You might try identifying it...
At Dr Ron's Website or at Hitchikers FAQ

Definately not a peanut worm. Looks nothing like it.

mantis shrimp/inch worm

Well i think it is a mantis shrimp. He looked just like a little green lobster as he scurried across the floor of the tank. I thnk I got him in a piece of live rock. I removed the rock and have it in another tank. Any idea on how to get him out of the rock?

i've heard of some dipping the rock in pure RO water and the shrimp vacates quickly... that is if the rock is easily removed...

question is, what to do once he's removed. Some people like them, your LFS may buy him from you.. ask around a little
