View Full Version : Fan worm help

01/01/2009, 06:45 PM
I just bought a fan worm the other day. It doesn't come out very often. I was wondering where to they prefer to live. I just have it laying on the sand bed right now. Should I move it? Also can they move themselves?

All of mine have seemed to like it best about midway up the rockwork in a spot that gets low to medium flow.
No matter what angle I've placed them in a crevice they always eventually turn and grow upwards.

I've read that they've been known to leave their tube for a better spot and grow a new tube, but I've never seen one survive after leaving it's tube.
I have seen them "pop" their crown from time to time and grow a new one over the course of a few weeks... very neat to see the tiny new feathers poke out for the first time again. :)
