View Full Version : Creepy things came out of coral, man

01/01/2017, 06:44 PM
I brought a soft coral (idk what it was. It was like a polyps thingy) and I coral dipped it and I saw something in it so I grabbed it with some tweezers and no joke it was this HUGE RED WORM WITH TENTICLES fml! And I was having a fricken panic attack, man I had fricken nightmares for days! And just I was looking at the tank and I decided I didn't like this hell spawn where it was so i pick it up (whereing gloves tho I don't trust this thing) and i move it and all this string comes out and i was thinking it was hairs or somethin' so I try to grab it and something falls out of it so it grab it and as the tweezers squeeze it all the fish poop in the world explodes out fml and i got it out the tank and it was a flippen coralised pile of poo. So now I'm in a dark corner of the room rocking back and fourth, crying and singing lullabies to myself wondering why we even bother. They should put this stuff on the flipping labels : "likes moderate light, moderate water flow and also doubles as a portal to the underworld"
"Yeah it your not careful Satan himself will appear form the coral and sneak into your room and steal your soul while you sleep. happy fishing"
Can you explain what I just witnessed and maybe share your coral horror stories?
Mean while I'm just gonna book a lifetime of counselling Brb.

Nope google tells me its a spaghetti worm and that they are good and beneficial but they scare me so I'll take their word for it. Nothing that looks like Satan's privates is friendly I'm sorry but no.
