So I thought I would do a bit of night time spying on my tank... Used a tiny LED torch, and immediately I see frantic movement. I look closely and it appears that a worm is trying to eat the zooanthid! Upon looking closer, I see that the zooanthid is closed up on the worm and the worm is struggling to free itself! My zoo's are ferocious!

Anyway after a few minutes the worm managed to break free, shot straight up towards my surface skimmer and was sucked into the rear chamber.

WOW I was not expecting anything this dramatic!

Might I suggest night lights, it may be a bit easier than a torch. Although my night lights are still not up and I use one of those 4 led push lights.
Did you know a bicolour blenny has different markings at night?
