    Don't think so~they actually look a lot like the feeding tenticals of my favia coral~and they are coming out of teeny tiny little hole in the LR.

    Update: Spaghetti worm.

    that is a vermitid snail check spelling I dont think it is right but it is a snail that lives in hard tubes and sends out the snot string to filter feed

    they are harmless for the most part but can be anoying when you reach in the tank and get stabbed by a tube (ouch)

    also in rare ocasions the feeding string can iritate a select few corals that are extremely sensitive
    I have been reefing from 08-2007 till 5-2011

    reef tanks are like wifes you have to give them some attention every now and then

    current tank is an 80g FW containing Oscars
