    I just got a nice hard tube coco worm with several heads for $20. Plus some other stuff. Pics to come. But I'm worried about the coco worm since they are known to be a bit difficult. Any tips on placement and care? Any one have long term success with one? The tube is probably a good 5 inches long if not more. I'm drip acclimating right now.

    Ive had mine for about 3 or 4 months it is growing like crazy. I keep mine on the bottom of the tank in a low flow area. just enough water movement to gently sway the feathers. I had it in a higher flow area for awhile but it looked like it was going to pull it inside out, so I moved it and it has grown about 3 inches.

    I have one and it is one of the few things that I was able to rescue from the tank drain. I have had it about a year without any problems. Wish I could give you some advice. It seems pretty hardy to me.

    Good to know, thanks!

    I put him in one of the lower flow and lower light areas and the heads are still bent at like 90 degrees. lol

    Maybe you could sell some of your art here on the forum. I think some of us would love to see it and who knows? :question:

    We own a lot of decorator artwork. The only true art we really have is an original Keith Haring piece. It's a red and black maze. Pretty cool.

    Oh man, i'm jealous of your haring!

    We don't have much. But I'm friends with Charlie Hardwick, aka "Uncle Charlie", famous rock concert poster artist. I have a few of his pieces framed and hanging.

    The fine art photo side is new to me so I'll post a link to a flickr or smugmug page once i set it up later this week.
