    White fuzz growing all over

    I’ve noticed a white fuzz growing all over my tank, wondering what this is and if there is a way to get rid of it. The tank has been up for 2 years, it’s a 20 gallon. Checked all my parameters and they’re all good (salinity 1.025, temperature 80).

    what the heck is this? Baby Bristle worm or flatworm?

    I have no idea what this is but it looks scary af! It wasn’t in my actual tank, it was with some chaeto in another tank. the picture doesn’t do it any justice- this is when I pulled it out dead. It looks furry on its sides. Also when it was alive, it extended its body to look longer.

    Hello! I’m pretty new in the hobby! Today I just noticed this kind of red worm on my euphyllia glabrescens… Is it vermetid snail? If not what could it be, the bottom seems attached to the body of the coral. Thanks for your time!
