    Hi Warr - looks like a polychaete worm - possibly a type of bristle-worm even. Perhaps some other folks could assist and give some more info...

    Never seen these before. The fish ate him, but I am sure wherever he came from there is more.

    Yeah - that worm is like Macdonalds for the fish! ;-) They love it.... AND YES - there would most likely be MUCH more where this worm comes from. They breed quickly and a LOT... You should see many of them at night.... in the water column...

    Ive got those fellahs too. When I was cycling my tank I turned on the light in the middle of the night and one of those fellahs was going NUTS.
