I got this off of a scolys. I was told by a LFS that they got a shipment in full of bad parasites and to check the bottom of all my corals. Does anyone know what this is? Sorry for the bad picture it was taken with a crappy phone.

Kinda hard to tell from that picture, but maybe some sort of peanut worm?

Thank you! Did you dip before you put them in your tank?

It's no peanut worm, it looks like it has a hard shell.

It is either a Vermitid snail or a Feather Duster Worm. Both are good. No worries mate. Smile

I don't think it is a Vermitid snail or a Feather duster worm by the look of the picture Mark, I still have no idea what it is Jeremy sorry buddy.

By the look of the picture compared to what I have seen, it is most likely a Vermitid snail. Please realize that identification cannot be made by just looking at the tube. In order to go further, we would need to know what comes out of the tube.Smile Disneymania may have thought it was one of the "bad parasites" the LFS warned about so may have removed and destroyed it. Did the LFS describe these parasites?

For what it's worth, please try to understand that 99% of the types of things we find in our tanks is not bad. But I will go even further to say that 99% are not simply harmless, but are actually a good and necessary part of the living environment of our little slice of the sea. That other 1% helps keep the 99 in line.Big smile

I can say with 100% confidence that the invertebrate that lives in that tube is not a bad parasite. Big smile
