OpaeLady I have two pipipi snails! I love them. Straight from hawaii also...with the shrimp and hermits

I'll leave the tube worm alone then!

Rob in Puyallup Yes it is a pipipi, direct from Hawaii nearly a year and a half ago.

Tube worms will do no harm, gathering floating bits our of the water.

Is that a pipipi snail? I love those guys!
I think I found a tube worm in my tank the other day. I left it be for the time being.

Rob in Puyallup Hiding under about three cups of chaeto (now in the dumpster) was a colony of tube worms. Bizarre critters...

Rob in Puyallup It's a pain to get rid of. The single dose of Chemipure and time took care of my problem with it...

I had it in this tank, chaeto severely trimmed back this evening.

OpaeLady I've had it before in my 29gal freshwater cichlid tank. I had it for 4 months before using ultralife blue green algae remover. I even tried blackouts. The ultralife knocked it right out though.

I'd hate to lose any of the shrimp because the chemicals, but it's going to kill everything else in the tank if I don't do something else. I've tried a 3 day black out on them already also. :\

Rob in Puyallup I used Chemipure. One dose. It is did kill one of the shrimp, though. It may have died out on its own like diatoms do.

OpaeLady Rob, what did you end up doing to rid yourself of the lovely cyanobacteria that is now trying to take over my tank?

Rob in Puyallup Hard telling... I feed the opae a small amount every morning. I'm sure that acts as food for the chaeto. This tank (the one with the berried mama on the front glass) has been up and running since January of last year. I've taken chunks of the chaeto out about every six weeks or so.

That's amazing Rob! How long for the Chaeto to get that expansive?
