  1. Default I need help (Worms in Live Rock)


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi everyone, I have bought about 20 pounds of live rock from Dragons Aquariums and I decided to put them in a seperate tank for a couple of days. I noticed after one day these little red worms in the bottom of the tank. I am pretty sure that they are worms. Is the rock good? Please help I have just switched from fresh water and I don't want my new salt water tank to go bad before I even start.

    The rock is fine and the worms are normal.

    Probably bristleworms, though there are a myriad of worms which can be found in live rock, most being benificial detritivores.

    Like others have said its most likely bristleworms. They are for the most part harmless to your aquarium, but do not touch them with your bare hand. Pictures for an ID of them will be the only way to get a definite ID of them.
