    Hi,

    Do you have allot of those small bristle stars in your sand, I had but don't see them Any more, and how (if I can find some again)do you keep them multiplying?

    I have some worms and pots and even the pods seems to be a lot less then what it where.

    Maybe someone will be willing to swap some live sand with this stars and worms in it ill appreciate

    Bristle worms increase rapidly when you feed too much. Pods die back when they get no food or there are livestock eating them. Depends on your situation.

    Try looking at night, about 2 hours after lights out with a torch covered in red cellofane.

    What has changed since you had lots of the noo-noo's. Have you added any livestock that predates on them, or have your water parameters gone out somehow?

    I have a regal, sailfin, mimic tang and goldy. Sump has DSB but it is a new tank. In old tank I have banana wrasse that I think is eating the pods and a boxing shrimp that is eating the worms. I changed over from corral sand to arrigonite and that is where I must have lost all the bristle Stars ext I had, know I must try and get them living in my new tank.
