What is this worm!


New member
After my last problem with my green goniopora, I want to make sure this new baby Taro Tree coral is safe from a worm I have in the tank. it's grey and about 3 to 4 inches long
. it had become attached to the coral over the past couple days. im guessing it's eating food off the coral but I want to make sure it doesn't harm it. I'll pay some picts of it. please help me identify and give me some kind of resolution. thank you.

I don't believe it is a bristle worm, but I don't know what kind it is. I've never seen one like that before. I'm sure somebody here will be able to ID it.

I agree with Ron, it's not a bristle worm. I too have no clue what kind of worm it is. I do know if I saw it in my tank I would try the bottle trap and get it out of there.

Have you seen what the head looks like? A picture of the head might be helpful.

It can live safely in your sump while you try to id it. Ask in the inverts forum.
