Ignoring my slight algae problem does anyone know what these little floating worm things are?
It does look like epitokes. It’s when a polychaete worm reaches that part of life when they’re sexually mature. Worry? No. But I’m sure you’ve got some bristleworms ;)

So bristleworms are ok? no need to worry about them or should I find a predator for them? I had a six line awhile ago but he decided to go carpet surfing before I got a lid.

Some people set up traps for them. But I feel it’s impossible to rid your tank of them. If they’re there, they’re there.
