    November this year will be three years I have been running my tank :blush:

    In my first year I had hundreds of small white shelled tube worms everywhere. Even the back glass was covered with them. Then all of a sudden they started dissapearing :(

    I am not sure why they would have dissapeared completely. I have a Regal Tang, Banggai's, common Clowns, 6-line wrasse, pistol shrimp, cleaner shrimps, hermit crabs and a few monster bristle worms :whistling:

    Who or what could be the possible reason for my fans dissapearing?

    Wrasses. They will denude the tank of small inverts. I have a coris wrasse doing the same.

    Have you got a refugium in the sump?

    I had a suspicion it was the wrasse ;)

    Weirdest thing I have a hidden creature in a hole which "spins" a web over a small area outside its "front door" but the wrasse leaves it alone :blush:
