    Thanks! Will work those links into my pages as you suggested, its nice to be able to direct elsewhere if I dont have what they are looking for. Have to say also that Leslie and Susan are a HUGE help and do so gladly. Without them, my pages would be nothing more than "this is a worm"...lol

    Going to move this to new to reefkeeping and sticky it. It does seem to be a rather well worn topic. I'm sure many will have something to add.

    Cheers

    I have a crab that looks exactly like that. The one that came on my rock will come out and accept pieces of silversides and shrimp when I do my bi-weekly feedings. He's a funny looking little guy for sure.

    Hitch Hiker nudi?>?

    I have a question re: hitch hikers, found a little something (thought it was an anenome)hiding in my pipe organ coral. got it home, now a week later, the coral isnt doing as well , and this little "anenome thing" we thought was one is now looking like a worm or nudi, with tenticle thingys. Ive attached a pic, any help to ID this little fella would help. hes Pink, and moves like a sea slug, but is VERY narrow, like a piece of speghetti, with long tenticle looking things comming off of him, just need to know if i need to yank him out, and he might be the reason as to my pipe organ not doing so hot? Help please, ive looked everywhere and cant find anything that looks or kinda looks like him.

    Thanks in advance!

    MoNeek09, that is definitely a Nudibranch and most likely a bad one, since there aren't really any truly good ones. It's eating something in your tank. Get it out and be on the look out for egg strands and newly hatched eggs.

    That "strange worm" is one of the Phyllodesdium sp. aeolid Nudibranchs, as is the one by MoNeek09

    Thanks all!!! I have removed it, and so far no sign of any eggs or little critters (babies). Weird that you say its a bad one, cause it was hiding in my Pipe Organ Coral for over a week, and now, it looks like its DEAD!!! Any ideas as to how to tell? Or what to do to revive my Pipe??
