I got home today to find Odo overrun by bristle worms.

I'm pretty sure they didn't kill him, but it still sucks.

Well, 0 for 2, think I'll lay off for a while

I think I've narrowed it down to the ghost shrimp I fed yesterday.

It was a new batch from the LFS.

As for how long I had him,
I figured it out

got a cuttlefish, 14 days later sucked into a pump.
made the tank free of all pumps and added new screens to the drains
got an octo, 14 days later died of ??

I think I need to look into perhaps an anemone tank :goofysca:

anyway, I'll wait and see what happens after X-mas

You are probably correct Carol...I just know that this time, we are going with a captive bred bimac..no more wild caught stuff for me...
