    It looks real blurry to me so it's hard to tell. But from the shape of it. Maybe a bristle worm. They are good in a reef as long as they don't get over populated.

    I would tend to agree, but a clearer pic would be a big help. If you can get one, we'd love to look again!

    True... keep your eyes open for more. Most reefers don't mind them as long as they are relatively small because they are good for keeping your tank clean. How big is too big? Depends on who you ask. I have one in my 20 gallon that is about 4 inches long, and he's okay with me. HTH.

    If it is red I would say fire worm. Either way don't touch t with your hands.
    Of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Red = Fireworm?

    Which? Hermodice carunculata? Pherecardia striata? Eurythoe complanata?
