Getting a used one is also an option. If you can find a reefer that is getting out of the hobby, they may have one for sale at a pretty decent price. I got mine for like $75 and get 0TDS out.

I've seen them 10+ inches in my tank. I completely agree with greenbean. Masonicman, the worm may have been cleaning up an already dead or dieing clam. It's what worms do.

I would try feeding him small bits of food. Like 1/4" by 1/4". If he doesn't take it there is not much you can do. Do you run carbon or anything? Have you tested your alkalinity?

If you can find some bridal veil, that might work. I think it is called thulle in craft stores. It may get gunked up with algaes and it may need replacing every so often.

my false percs have been with my bubble tip for 6 months and haven't gone into the bubble tip yet. At night they like to hang out next to the overflow box, which is like 6" from the anemone too.

Just make sure that you keep up on fragging the star polyps and xenia. Once they start to get out of control they will take off.

Threads that aren't on the first page tend to get lost and not get as many replies. It just gets more people to see them. It can get annoying if someone keeps bumping the same thread again and again.
