Yeah removing the rock is probably what I would do to. Make sure you where gloves though! I think they bite, could be wrong but I'd wear em anyways cause that thing is nasty lookin lol...Thanks! I think removing the rock is the best solution for now because I know where it is. If I try and set a trap, it might relocate to another rock or in the sand. Cheers for the warm welcome!
Yep @Daniel Thompson. We found you a bobbit! LolI don’t know why everyone freaks out about these. I mean, get it out, it can kill your other inhabitants, but it’s been in your tank for as long as you’ve had your rock, it’s not some emergency to get it out. I would maybe set up a nano for it, they are fascinating creatures (if not I’m sure there’s someone here that would pay for shipping).
Do Bobbits have that white band? I don’t think so unless a species I haven’t seenHi guys, could I please get some help to identify this worm in my tank. Is it a bristle worm? Could it be a bobbit worm? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance guys!
Save the whales!Thanks for all the replies guys! I appreciate the fast turnaround in responses. I'm pretty confident it is a bobbit worm (or a species of this). I am going to remove the rock that it lives in so that it is not in my main tank. I think that it is unique enough to keep in a "pest" tank. This will limit any damage it does.
Sorry for the late reply dude! I put the rock in my only other tank which was a small quarantine tank. It came out a few times looking for food but never all the way.Did you get it?
It was more than 6 feet. It was mine.Someone had a 3 footer last month, it may have been bigger! https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/t...u-have-had-about-your-reef-tank.825461/page-3
