Went to my LFS today and picked up this coco worm and the orange mushroom.
I love coco worms! They are by far one of my favorite animals in this hobby. I have never owned one though. I have never seen them for sale at my LFS. Ever. Your sure is beautiful! Congrats on the new addition.
That is an awesome looking worm, and nice little coral.
Soooo beautiful and soooo difficult.
Hope you buck the trend.
HUH ??????? They are difficult ???? On no, say it isn't so ....... :ugh:
Oh man, coco worms are some of the worst! One of the reasons I've never tried one :shock:.
awwww you're kidding, right ????
Do you see this face? Does it look like I'm kidding?
Well crap ....
Aren't these guys filter feeders? They are basically a big feather duster right? I have never kept one but would love to know more about how to.
Yea, me too ..... :12:
It just need lots and lots of microplankton.Maybe more than what we can provide.
I think it's cool looking, good luck with it!
Very nice coco worm. Good luck with caring for it and keeping it nice and healthy.
It is really beautiful. But I need more experience before I tackle that. Very nice find. :Cheers:
Those are great looking additions Sunshine.
I think that the key to keeping Coco worms is having a tank with a lot of plantonic foods for them to eat.
I had one several years ago, I believe it was a Christmas Tree varity. Not hard at all to keep. I just used additives to help feed it. It did quite well for a long time.
Yours is very nice! :mrgreen:
I've had a coco worm since October and it's doing well (now). That wasn't always the case. Not long after I got it, I added a dottyback which started picking at the coco worm. The coco worm shed both of it's plumes (to my horror) but within a month, new growth started to emerge. It now has two complete plumes and is pooping every day, so I assume it's getting nutrition in.
Here is my question to those of you that have coco worms: Does your worm ever scrunch up it's plumes and release them. Mine does this almost daily and I don't understand why. I can't help but think it's a bad sign because when it shed both plumes, the plumes sat on the sand bed and scrunched up like that for a few days before being eaten/swept away.
Mine died It either came out or was pulled out, but it died.
Sorry Sunshine. I'll post my question on a new thread and see what others know about this.
