  1. I’m cleaning up and realised I have an old wormfarm that I have dumped and forgotten for years. Since I’ve started growing soldier flys now (I used to have mealworms but got too tired maintaining them), might as well use the worm farm. Any suggestion on BIG WORMS that I can grow? Plan to use the harvest from these units as food for my fish. If you have some worms to sell from your wormfarm, pls let me know.

  6. Hi Guys, I watched this worm kill a shrimp it was very small initially and it would fight with the shrimp for food. I found it interesting so I left it. But over the last 2-3 months it has grown significantly and today I found it fighting with a big cherry shrimp. 30 minutes later the cherry shrimp was dead........ couldn't believe it. Here is a photo anyone know what it is? Cheers

  10. This form of sabellidae can attain an emmense colony easily. They are only extremely common at two sites in SEQ and a few at other sites, though not so many and one site has 7 patches of them and where the local leopard shark for that site has its rest time, it’s a massive area of them. Maybe they are nice to lay on,lol. Quite often over many years from the early 80s on club or individual collecting/field trips, I see literaly millions of them. Under standard led lights they take on a beautiful blue ting.

  15. Secret giant worm behind mystery of vanishing aquarium fish
  16. I found this ages ago and put it in the aquarium and thought it would be a xmas tree worm on a live coralline roller? This mongrel throws a net over the sps and kills some of the polyps and then sends out a single line to pull back dead tissue. It's very complicated as to how I found it in action, anyway its not happy now that I found it doing this twice by accident,that was after two sections of my sps went down to it, not that I realised it till it was to late for them.
  17. Okay, So I've been researching the diana Walstad method, turns out I was already kind of doing it....Sort of. Anywhom, I stumbled across something about someone using blackworms in their aquarium which were helping them, in their walstad method, to avoid doing anything with their sand substrate. The basic idea was that the worms live in the sand substrate (which was the substrate this person, and myself, are using) The idea of using blackworm is for a double benefit, one being that they would mean I could spend less time on maintenance another being, a self sustaining food source for the angelfish. If it is possible, and not a bad idea, how would one go about taking action in beginning the process of creating a colony of them. (I have fed my angels live blackworm before, they LOVE LOVE LOVE it) Appreciate any insight, opinions and methods if such a thing exists -Kyrin

  20. This morning I noticed this critter on the side of my tank. It was about 3 inches long. Over the other side a the tank there were about 7 or 8 of them and they were burying themselves into the substrate. When touch they curl up very quickly into little balls. Any ideas as to what the are?
  21. Hi guys I was doing a water change and gravel clean on my 120 litre New Guinea Rainbow tank . Plunging the gravel cleaner into the substrate a few times and about a half a dozen worms like this came up. They look like the sand worms you catch at the beach for bait, with bristles on the flanks. Handling the worm roughly causes them to break into independent living segments. I am sure I am kill em with snail rid or some sort of worm treatment, I am just curious to know what the hell they are and are they harmful ie like an anchor worm or such. Thanks, Phil
  22. OK i've been reading alot of posts lately and all of you seem to be saying that blood worm is really bad to feed to your fish. Why is that? and would it be considered bad for my american cichlids?

  24. Have had an out break of these flat white worm things crawling in my cherry tank does any one know what they are
  25. Ok so I'm a newbie to the world of keeping a shrimp tank (20L) have about 15 cherries with java moss, driftwood and anubias plus just added some elodea. Have now realised i've been overfeeding was reading today to not even feed as they will survive off algae and plant matter.... Anyways I have these long thin clear worms about .5-1cm long on the glass plus some planaria plus hydra growing, yuck on all levels! So I have done a huge 50% water change mega gravel clean and scraped off as many worms as I can, I've also added a teaspoon of salt, I have worming tablets for my bn with 100mg of praziquantel but it doesn't say anything about safe or not safe for invertebrates? What can I do/get to fix these problems but keep my shrimp alive?
