someone brought a couple fish and some live rock into the store for us today, and this is only 1/3-1/2 of the bristleworms i pulled off the rock, that were this size. there were literally hundreds of small ones, that i didnt even bother pulling off the couple of rocks (which only took up 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket) these things were just sitting all over the rocks. im amazed the woman didnt get stung pulling them out and bringing them up to the store. some of these things are 7-8 inches long easy and twice as thick as a pencil.

the rocks were brought in in a bucket, so sadly i have no idea what the tank looked like. im sure it was quite interesting. the small portion shown in the photograph ended up preserved in the collection at the university i attend lol
