    Default My live rock has bugs in it?

    While looking at my live rock i just got for my tank from Keys I noticed there was a little centipede looking thing crawling around is this normal or an organism that lives in the rock. I have no idea what it is I havent read anything about it anywhere so I figured I would ask.

    Probably bristle worms, no biggie and a good clean up crew.....but make sure you don't touch them!

    It was pretty small not even an inch. It really kind of looked like a centipede. I cant get a pic because its in a hole but i went researching through the forum and all i saw was the bristle worm and the bobbit. Im praying its not a bobbit how would i be able to tell.

    Take it from the Queen (me) of bristle worm kingdom-it's a bristle worm. Pray it remains white. The red are not called fire bristle worms for nothing

    Yuck, Ok I'm just new so dont kill me...need to know what to do about it. My tank is NOT set up so I have time to fix it.

    I'm in the same boat or was, picked up a used tank and move a 100lbs of rock.

    As I was moving rock I notice a small worm that shot into a hole. looked it on web, found Bristol and Bobbit worms, said to pick them out with tweezers? Ok so later found one pulled on it and it broke, and nice white junk came out and it went back in the hole??? GREAT

    (NOT SAYING TO DO THIS, I'm just looking for next steps)
    Probably get yelled at but I moved all my rock into plan fresh water buckets. I figured I didn't want anything that lived though the 6 months of low salt and no heat...and I don't have 50 gallon of salt water to rinse it.

    Just went out in the garage to see if I could quickly find anything, and I found this?
    Anyways, hate to ask but what this? I know I killed it sorry.

    This is NOT the same thing I saw before.. and I didnt touch it.
    whatsthis - My live rock has bugs in it?
    Google has pics of both - Says Bobbits get 4 FEET long?

    Next steps please
