    I have found two yellow worms in my tank. They are about an inch and half long. Almost transparent but yellow in color. They look like the have wiskers on the front end of them, and two apendages off there rear. I will post photo in few, when I figure how to get my camera photos onto my laptop.
    Thanks
    John

    Taking pics of the tank is difficult. My camera has trouble focusing like that too. Its a yellow squiggly line. Hopefully someone will know what that is.

    Sorry I have no clue from that picture. Are you sure it isn't just a common bristle worm?

    It looks like a peanut worm to me. If it is, those are reef safe.
