Medusa worms for sure.... They look like Graboids from Tremors.

I hate snails and hermits, I pick them up but I can't stand feeling them move on my hands at all, I also get really grossed out when I move some live rock and stick my hand into a great big sponge.

Most people don't realize that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a child look like a deer.

I once tried to pick up an octopus by hand. It grabbed me and suctioned onto my hand with its tentales. Squirming, sticky tentacles; beaked mouth hidden from sight.

It was horrible. I couldnt get it to let go of me.

I will never do that again.

Quit your job. Buy a ticket. Get a tan. Fall in love. Never return.

Current Tank Info: 20 gallon roundfront and 75 gallon

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

I remember when zoanthids were called things like "green" and "orange" and not "reverse gorilla nipple."

Current Tank Info: 180g reef with all the bells and whistles

The big fat bristle worm that we found in my tank last night. It was only about 3 inches long but it was very fat. It was so creepy that my husband had to fish it out for me. We put it in a plastic container to examine it more closely and it secreted a yellow milky substance. Eew!!!

oh yes, definitely add mantis shrimp to the list. obviously more than just creepy to handle since they can pack a mean punch to an unprotected hand. but even looking at them gives me the shivers. so dang smart, too.


RIP, my little ones. you will be missed :(

Current Tank Info: taking a break
