Thought I was done with the damn bastards months ago and last night, I just noticed a tiny one in my biocube again :( god I hate these things! :mad2: Thinking I'll just have to build a trap this time unless someone has another suggestion?:headwally:

C. regius will eat them but I wouldn't advise one for a biocube unless you can re-home it to a larger system once the worms are gone.

Ha, someone from Louisiana! lol I'm a native, anyway, what's a C. Regius? Can definitely rehome :)

Yeah I'm guessing the crown cone snail? I have lots of invertebrates in there though :/

Baton Rouge here, never been out to Cali.

Regius will only eat worms, other inverts are safe. Last item on their snail list--- http://reeftopia.com/reefaquariumsnails.htm

I've had a problem with Fulgida worms for a few years now, two of them I've gotten rid of, a bit by chance, but there's at least one more I've yet to hunt down.

The first one was kind of dumb luck, it had made itself at home in the active carbon in my fuge. The second one I spotted at night and had left its burrow and crawled in under a frag that was laying loose in the sand bed, and was pretty easy to grab with a pair of tweezers.
