I would really like some advice on whether i should get rid of the bristleworm that came with live rock or leave him be!
I am very new at this hobby as my tank has been running for only 7 weeks.
I have a 300 litre (137 gallon) tank FOWLR, I have never owned fish before so when i dived into this hobby I realised there was so much to learn (which has been so interesting) with everything.
My tank cycled well as i did everything by the book!
The first lot of live rock was so fascinating, checking out all the nooks and crannys, seeing what emerged. A snail, a couple of tiny white worms, a purple urchin, then i discovered a mantis shrimp which i was told to catch as it would kill my fish when i put them in, so i managed to catch that after a couple of days.
After my second lot of rock there was alot of brown diatoms in my tank so i went and got four clean up snails, which seemed to help and after the six weeks of cycle and all my levels perfect I bought three blue green chromis. I have had them now for four days.
Anyway while i was checking out my tank at 3am this morning i noticed a sea
snake!!! I know now with a bit of investigating online that it is a bristleworm. It is about 15 cm long when stretch out. I have been reading about whether they are dangerous or ok but there seems to be a mixed reaction.
Sooo i would really appreciate some advice whether i should keep it or try and catch it.
Ps. On the weekend if all my levels are still perfect im going to get two clown fish
