    Hi everyone,

    I bought a rock with christmas tree worms in and today noticed a strange creature in one of the holes, probably made by the worm.

    It is so small and no matter hoe I try and take a picture, it just doesn't come out clearly. I have also googled a description, but to no avail.

    The only bit that is sticking out of the hole is 2 plume like antennas, very similar to that of a moth, looks like a fern the 2 tentacles. I also noticed arms continually 'stroking' the antenna as if it is cleaning or combing them. I also saw it catching pieces of flake food, but just cannot see enough of this little thing.

    Anyone with ideas as to what this could be?

    Thanks.

    Hi @ascheff,

    Yes indeed! It looks exactely like these, just not so much yellow on the claws. Have never seen this before.

    Thank you!
