    hi everyone ...

    since i got a toby in my system, it munched all the tube worms, i think, or it nibbled it to death.

    question, must i remove the left overs, or will it grow back over time.

    hope it isnt a stupid question ...

    :)

    the reason for asking is, i saw it nibble one head off, and the other two tube worms havent been seen for about 1 month ... mmm, so i am not very optimistic about them.

    They can recover, but sounds like they got no chance in your tank

    Tube worms can grow their crowns back but with threat of the toby around I dont think they will recover as soon as it grows the new "shoots" will be eaten!
