HELP

Just noticed a horrible worm like thing crawling out of my rocks. Its silvery grey in colour with tiny hair like bristles...ewwwwww :dev: where did it come from and should I (my hubby rather) get rid. I have just bought some hermit crabs and a shrimp so was watching them in the blue light when this thing came into focus :wtf:

sounds like bristleworm, they eat detritus and some like and think they are a great addition to their clean up crew, I personally don't like them and glad my arrow crab eats anything like that lol.. They can get huge. If your husband does try to take them out tell him not to touch them with his bare hands.

I personally think they do a great job in the tank and would leave it and it's mates to do what it does best and eat the stuff the others wont touch.....
If it has fin's and swim's I'm interested in it....

question lol...How active or inactive are hermit crabs. Mine just seems to sit there not moved a muscle really. When introduced to the tank they made a beeline for the edges of the rocks and more or less stayed there. They have been in for nearly 24 hours. Sally,my shrimp, :-): tends to stay at the back hanging of the rocks. Is all this normal? Don't really know what to expect. Sally seemed very active in the shop, but then Sally didn't have much rock to hide behind. :-):

I wouldnt add an arrowcrab if you have shrimp, mine got moved into the sump when I decided I wanted starfish. They do look like spiders but I think that was part of the attraction lol.
