    i was looking at the beauty in the small things we ofetn have hidden in far off corners of our tanks that are often over looked in relation to the big fish and beautiful corals. I got a nice shot of a tiny fan worm and thought id share with you.

    Thats not the common one is it? I've seen some nice red ones in my tank but they generally stay small and and are hidden in little crevices in rocks. Great pic man! wish I had a good camera

    i think the 'common red one' you are refering too comes in a hard white calcerious tube and often establishes in darker recesss. This one has a softer tube that extends quite proud (upwards if you will) from the rock while the red ones tend to stay close to the rock and just extend the fan.

    I'm always quite keen to stare at feathers -very delicate and move so gracefully

    Love to watch them develop, I have counted 3 different species already in my tank that "spontaneously" established.

    What I find fascinating is that they clearly find enough plantonic food in our tanks while many other filter feeders struggles?

    Classic photo dude, although the color patterns remind me of the weird auras i see before a migraine.
