    She isn't looking so good-I add a few drops of phytoplex every other week-she don't look nothing like she did when I first brought her home. To much flow maybe?

    I add live phyto every couple days and i still think mine is going hungry. It just shed a crown, but my tank was out of whack, so that might be it also. This is my second worm, first one was around 7 months, and the one i have now is about five months. The worm is not known for doing well in captivity.

    Feed more phyto, and if the crowns are not opening maybe adjust your flow to the worm. Mine seem to open best in very low flow

    If it comes out of the tube, and still opens id say your ok. Im not a pro my first one only lasted 7 months. But from watching my last one die, out of the tube and open is a good happy worm. as long as it is getting phyto. Coming up on month 6 with my second one.

    Well I haven't seen it in a couple days now. Been adding phyto directly into it's tube. I'll give it another day or two, if nothing then I'm gonna remove it.

    Can you see the worm in the tube? If so dont remove it. It may be too far gone but if you can see the worm it should still be alive. On another note I do have 2 heads again. I can see clearly the second head. Did you ever move the worm to a low flow area?
