It's nice to be back! We finally got DSL and I'm not boycotting the internet anymore! LOL
Can anyone ID these things and tell me what to do about them?
There are thousands of these creatures in our 180 gallon reef tank. They appeared about a month ago and have become an eyesore nuisance. What are these creatures and what will eat them?
They are not a bacteria because they move under their own power. They are about 1/8" long and move if something touches them. The parameters in the tank are all good. The fish inhabiting are: a chromis, 3 pj cardinalfishes, a longnose butterfly, 2 percula clowns, a dwarf angel. None of these seem the least interested in munching on the creatures. There are 2 serpent starfishes and numerous brittle stars, a porcelain crab and of course hermit crabs and snails. Again, none of these guys are interested in the creatures.
These things go into the sand when the lights go out and a few of them crawl up the sides of the tank during the day.
What are these creatures and how do we get rid of them?
