    Found these three little guys swimming in my fuge this morning...look like little snakes swimming laps across the cheato. Are they harmful or should I leave them in there? IMG_20170924_094900391_HDR.jpg IMG_20170924_094905290_HDR.jpg

    I'm pretty sure they're bristle worms. Some people don't like them but they're not harmful that I'm aware of. When I dip my coral and they fall off I get rid of them though.

    I dont know what they are but they dont look like any of my Bristle Worms. Also they appear to be free swimming at the surface? Possible fish fry?

    If I look at that picture long enough, I'm going to start imagining them crawling in my soup. I think I am going to hurl...

    Youtube "penis fish korea". My wife and I had that worm with hot sauce in Korea when we visited the fish market. I insisted we try that after watching a video. It was surprisingly common and not hard to find at the fish market we went to.

    Those “momma” pics were definitely a bristle worm, but I’m not convinced the first tiny snakelike ones are the same thing.
