Eunice worm: stab & kill?


New member
I have at least 1 Eunice worm for sure in my tank, probably a lot more. I just happened to find this ones burrow lodged between my overflow (it is a glass overflow with black acrylic cover placed in front of it, creating 1/8"-1/4" gap between the glass and acrylic). I could remove the overflow cover, but I'm worried that he would just bolt into the LR. So I was thinking about trying to stab him with a skewer, hopefully decapitating him, and letting him die. I'm not sure how well this would work though, and can they regenerate?

Anyone have any ideas?
