coco worms are pretty hard to keep.. if i can remember i think they need near perfect water conditions, also need alot of nutrients in the water, they eat alot, so try target feeding them too.

Well I bought one a little over 15 months ago and about six months ago he popped his top. I thought he was a gonner but he slowly came back until about three weeks ago and he just disappeared.

I was changing the tank around today I couldn't see him in his shell at all so i thought he was gone. I broke his shell open about 1/3 down and sure enough he was gone.

I set the shell out on a counter and after FIVE hours I decided to show my friend and I broke the remaining piece open at about 1/2 and WHOA, he was there and alive. I put him back into tank but I don't have high hopes.

I'll report back if interested.
