Re:parasites in nursery


Good day Pete,

Seems I always come away a little light headed after reading one of your extremely detailed, and informative messages. It is rather late tonight, but I will observe my nursery in the morning. I can’t say I have seen anything suspicious yet. I have been removing something from my rock though. Most likely not the culperate, but I can’t rule it out. They are fleshcolor, and look like very small tubes protruding from the rock. At the end of the main tube there are several tentacles that seem to be filtering for babybrine, and frozen mysis. I’ve yet to catch them feeding. I decided to leave 3 of them so I could watch them more closely. They are growing off a tonga rock. The seaponies don’t seem to be bothered by them at all.

I will advise my findings after monitoring the tank. I’ll check tonight after lights out, and again in the morning. I’ll get back to you soon.

Thanks again for all the information. I’ve been saving everything you give me for future ref.

Any word on your book yet? Have you considered marketing disc copies?
Please advise.

Your grasshopper
