    It looks like the back end broke off. This is the worse part of tose GD things it will grow a new head. If you think you broke him, which is a survival stratagy for them, you have to get the rest. If you got him all congrates. For sure one of the happiest days of my aquarist life!!

    I got him all. To get it out I had to get an anemone off a rock that it didn't want off of, and then I gave the rock a fresh water dip for about 20 min. The worm came out after about a minute or two and I waited till I was sure it was dead till I pulled it all the way out. Very happy that thing is out!
