    25E379C2-3F9E-4725-B477-1641439A0EEA.jpeg Just got a coral shipment in and left work to go put in tank. Did a quick dip not my usual thorough dip because i was in a rush. Didnt dip my master scoly was scared if he can be dipped or not. Buttt after i added the treated corals into tank i went to throw away dipped water and saw a few worms in bottom of plastic container and am now freaking out cuz i really didnt do a thorough dip and examination as I usually do and I didn’t dip Scoly. Hope i did not introduce a worm. Please ID and tell me what to look for if they in tank. I hear they go for snails and i also git a small clam in the tank.
    Thx

    I just found a few days ago. I always dip in Bayer, have no idea how it made it in. It looked just like the pic except 4 or 5 inches big. If it didn't make it into your tank you dodged a bullet! They reproduce both sexually and by budding so one can turn into an army.
