Caught this little fella to show the ones that I have in my tank







firstly I dont recommend you go lifting these with your hands, thats if you could even get that close.
like a lot of small critters in your tank they are nocturnal and not usually seen during the day.
The best method is a red lens on a flashlight after the lights have been off for a while.
As far as I know from the books I have read they are reef safe and good cleaners,
people used to blame them for killing clams,anemones, corals, fish but most modern
reef books and reefers will say this isnt true..... you can even buy them.
If you do want to catch them you can buy worm traps that work very well or like
catching crabs you use a jam jar angled with the (plastic)top upwards and a small
hole in the lid.then just put a small amount of bait inside it.
