    Hey everyone do any of you know if tube worms attach themselves to rocks? I got a few pieces of LR and it looks like some of the rocks have a couple of tube worms on them they are really small maybe the fan on them is about 1/4 inch and the tubes that they are coming out of are maybe an inch long if they were straight but they are kinda in a "S" pattern the tubes are grey and the fans are red. They are too small for pics so thats all I can give ya.

    Yep, they are really common hitch hikers on live rock. Congrats!

    Most of them are extremely slow growers.So most likely will stay the same size they are now.
