i have a worm in my living rock ,it looks like a millipede but has no legs and no bristles.
it seems to be black and white striped.extends out of a whole then the mouth comes out of the end and attacks the foilage in the tank.to fast to catch ive tried.
anyone know what it is or could be.
like i say its basicly a worm.
cheers dave

Sounds like a peanut worm (sipuncula). The body stays in the hole while the feeding structure (called an introvert) extends out to find food. Kinda like the big beast in the Alien movies!
