Very little info online about these guys. Looked at my tank today and saw a little white whipsy featherly like exoskeleton that im thinkin is one of the worms moulting? Not sure if they molt and barely any info on their growth. Please lmk what you guys think. I cant get a pic because its small and floating in the water column.

I've had some for 4 years and have never seen them molt.
Thank you! Were your worms alot smaller when your first got them??if so how do they grow? If its not the worms that molted it could be the barnacle i have in the tank. I know they moult but it looked exactly like the bisma worms. Thanks for your help!

I couldn't find any information on them molting, I don't think they do. They grow pretty slow, I broadcast feed live phyto daily and Reef Roids/Benereef twice a week. They have never reproduced in my tank and I haven't heard of any cases where they have reproduced in an aquarium.
