What is this flat thing? Saw it in my sump.
Dont know which one you looking at but looks like bristle worm and flat worm to me.
Is it not a chiton? Difficult to say from the pics, really need some better pics
Chiton. They cool. You may gear down and take a breath now
I'm looking at the yellowish one, I know the reddish one is a bristle worm. Was a bit far in the refugium, hence the bad pic.
What do they do? Or what are their purpose? Poisonous?
Good guys, herbivore and nice to have. Leave it b. Not poisonous
Hi Tobes - Neil is 100% correct! Did you perhaps get this critter somewhere off the rocks? Did you collect natural sea sand perhaps that it came in on? Or perhaps get some rock out of a rock pool? It would have been a hitch-hiker on any one of these things....
Howzit Jacques, No to all your questions. I only have the LR in my new tank that I had for the last 2 years - and when I moved over to the new tank 5 months ago I bought aragonite for the substrate. Just bought fish and corals since then. He probably grew in the rock somewhere and was in hiding when he was still small.
Looks like a chiton to me too. Some bristle worms in there too...
