Spaghetti Worms

    I've got a few of these in my tank. Some have latched themselves on some frags of my Zoas. My problem I'm having is that it seems to be eating my frag rocks where the Zoas are glued and they fly off. I've seen three separate zoa clumps in my tank, luckily I've grabbed them and glued them on plastic frags. Anyone hear of this or have an idea what else it could be?

    I have them all over my tank too, although I have never seen any issue from them

    Any idea what might be eating the glue/Rock on my frags. It's only on my Zoas

    I have no idea but I've had spaghetti worms also and never seen any adverse affects to them.

    Ask and you may find out, don't ask and you will never know.

    What else is in the tank? Got an urchin?

    Just a basic CUC. I'm thinking since spaghetti worms live in rocks sometimes they bore out where they live, so if they are attached to the frags they are boring it out to make room.

    Do you have any peppermint shrimp? I've had some before that ripped out and ate my zoa's.

    That sounds more like a camel shrimp.

    The only CUC I have are red stripe snails, nassarious snails and hermits.
