    Hi, I am very new to this game. My tank is currently 7 weeks old. I managed to take a photograph of someithing, which my local pet shop identified as bristleworm. Having read some previous encounters on this site, I am now terrified to put my hands into the tank. Is there a way to get rid of them? I believe you can make a trap with some pvc pipping and end caps. What size hole do I drill into the end caps and what would be appropriate bait?

    Also, the other day I noticed something stuck to the glass in the form of a spiral. When I attempted to remove it (this was before I saw the bristleworm!!!), it felt like mucous and broke into pieces. Its a pity I did not photograph it. Any ideas what this could be?

    Other than that, tanks coming on well, got 2 cleaner shrimps, a few hermits and a few turbo snails.

    Thank you

    You dont have to worry about bristle worms, they are part of the clean up crew. You could get a wrasse that would eat them. If you get poked.. well it happens lol :) .. Welcome to the forum
