    That looks like a peanut worm to me too. Very common in our tanks!

    I guess I've never seen a peanut worm before. (BTW it doesn't look at all like a peanut).
    That looks like a frickin snake to me. :shock:

    hehehehe ok, cool, heck, now that i think about it, that might be the same one i found back when that rock was in the 75.... i totally forgot about that...

    anywho... it was just odd to me to see him out like that in the light.... i went outside to get some stuff done, and when i came back he was gone, so i guess he went back into the rock...


    thanks yall... glad hes a good one...
