Was looking at my tank lastnite...and this thing caught my eye. I thort it was a baby fish....only to finally see it stop zooming around and see that its sum kind of reddish worm. It lodged into a piece of liverock...and I think its tongue came out to pull itself out and carry on zooming all over the show.
WTF? Wot the hell is this thing...and its it normal?

Hi Wetty - YES - this is quite normal. There's a LOT of interesting things happening after dark in our tanks. This is a small young bristle-worm...... Seen them many many times.....

Have a google for "epitoke" they are free swimming worms - it may have been one of them.
