I’ve got a NanoCube 29g that’s just under three years old and a 75g that’s about 2˝ years old. Both tanks are clear, clean, and healthy.
In my 29g I have a large piece of LR
with a nice montipora and a very large, expanding colony of zoas.
I want to move this rock into the 75g and exchange a similar size rock back into the 29g.
My biggest concern is that there’s quite a few bristle worms living in the 29g, and I don’t want to introduce even •one• into the 75g.
I’m contemplating suspending the rock just under the surface of some water drained from the 29g at my next WC
in order to lure the worms with some food on the bottom of the bucket…
Has anyone tried this? Does it sound like a reasonable course of action?
I suspended a rock in the sump of the 75g about 2 years ago to lure out my large brittle star, so my gut feeling is that it oughtta work…
I realize this could be up to a 2-3week process so the worms will all have plenty of time to venture out & fall to the bottom of the bucket…
How far should I pursue this idea?
Thanks in Advance!
