    It was about 2hrs after the lights went off that i decided to take a look around
    with the torch when i spotted him.

    Very nice pics.

    These worms can be a good indication of your tanks nutrient levels

    High nutrition levels increase bristle worm populations, which can be a good and a bad thing.

    Great CUC :)
