I was lookin a a clump of zoo's that I've got in my tank that were closed today. There was this little guy that looks like a catapillar on em. What could this be? I wish I had a camera to take a picture but I don't. With me moving the tank on either wed or thursday that'd be the best time to treat all the corals i'm guessing as I'll be bagging each of them and then acclimating them all to the new tank. HELP!!!

If it had short bristles half pinkish, half gray= bristleworm. If it had what looked like white longer 'bristles' on it's sides=fire worm.

no deff not a bristleworm. I've seen those before. This is only like 1/4 inch long. looks more like a little nudibranch. or some other sluglike thing like that.

im going to research it more later to see if I can find a picture online but I've got a psychology final at 7 so I'm supposed to be studying.
