I've had the tank set up for 2 yrs now. The salt tank anyway have had freshwater for over 40 yrs. We've taken everything in the salt tank very slowly and carefully. Have had a few losses, some of the gobies just don't seem to do well, although they are some of the prettiest fish. With the anenome's we studied them heavily before we tried bringing any home and made sure the tank was in top order, correct lighting, water flow, feed etc. Bought VERY healthy animals watched the water quality closely, fed them correctly, accilimated correctly etc.. Kept finding them with the middle eaten out of them and flushed the red crab thinking it was him, the second time it happened. Tried 2 more and lost those the same way. Bristle worms were the last thought in our mind as we had no live rock yet. After going through the first 4 we weren't planning on anymore. Found the fire bristle worm and flushed him and decided to give it another shot. Have had the one that has had no issues for about 6 months, he's growing and thriving and doing well. You can tell me the bristle worm didn't do it all you want. I'm convinced he did, trouble stopped after he was flushed.
