    I have no better way to explain this than to say I see little ant hills with tentacles in my DSB - +- 6 Anthills.

    Any Idea what these are - I presume they are good, since I noticed most life in the DSB is good.

    I have also notices what looks like a little red worm (bristle worm?)

    Tnx!

    The anthils with tentacles could be spagetti worms

    Neil very difficult to take a guess without a pic but I would say some type of sandworm (Polychaeta), a lot of different species but some "stick" grains of sand to their bodies (the little ant hills) and actually extend part of their digestive track outside to feed

    The red worm could be a bristle worm.

    Both are good
