This was several months ago and could never figure out what it was but it appeared a day or 2 after my scopas tang died. The tang was sick for a couple weeks and nothing I did would help him. I am wondering if this was some kind of parasite that was inside him or if anyone knows what it was/is???? Thanks
Roughly how big do you think the diameter is in that photo? I've seen spaghetti worms in public display tanks that can put out a head about that size, but never in a hobby tank. Here's one that, for scale, the head is roughly 1/8" on, but if you could imagine a larger version scaled up, it would look similar. When it pulls the head in it disappears entirely, which is what likely happened when you came back.
Wow that's pretty cool looking. I think ur 100% correct it looked just like this and it was in the very lower corner so the rest must have been buried. Is this reef friendly? Lol I would have been shocked when I were to pull it out and seen everything else that came with it.
