Looking for the species

Post  thierry on Tue Feb 09, 2010 4:59 pm

Yet unknown which species this is, my current bets go out to the following three:
Microprotula sp.
Bispira sp. 01 - Fan worm
Bispira trcyiclia - Tube Worm

Anyone any idea?

Made a picture of one of them now. At least one in which it shows a bit, they are very small and are still mainly hidden between rocks.

The road to rebuilding Pt 1

Post  thierry on Thu Apr 22, 2010 11:32 pm

The little fan worms don’t come out of their shell much anymore. Hopefully new ones will show after rebuilding, because they will probably be damages by the whole process.

The road to rebuilding Pt2

Post  thierry on Fri Apr 23, 2010 4:42 pm

The fan worms are hard to preserve, they are everywhere, my hope is that they will reappear after the rebuilding and show better then they did before.

Back from vacation

Post  thierry on Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:45 pm

The aquarium also begins to fill up with Fan Worms again, more seems to show them selves every day. Since the first rebuild we lost many of them, then we had another outbreak of algae killing any of them that came up but now everything is steady again.
