    Hi all,

    I bought 2x tube worms a long while ago, they are looking good but the one has kinda "shed". They are on the rock rock and the one somehow attached it self to the bottom of one of the rocks. Now it looks like it has "shed" and the worm is exposed but stuck on the roch... this is the back half of the worm. The front half still has the sheath and is very responsive and still looking good - must i worry?
