You'll never get near a Eunicid worm with a turkey baster. They retract like lightning and rarely do they extend themselves fully from their holes.

Careful...this isn't as simple as one might think. Are you measuring Ca/Alk levels that have led you to conclude that you need Kalk? Once you know you need it, you have to figure out how much you...

I'm thinking that the room would be behind the tank, with three sides of the tank visible outside. I just don't think I can fit all that I need underneath the tank.
