    thanks Ric

    These worms are known coral eaters and will often take out small fish. They are lightning fast. They always have 5 tentacles on their head.

    To give you an idea of how big they can get, check out Steve's eunicid. Oregonreef.com

    Is that "Steve" as in our very own Steve Wright? If so, Kudos for not crapping your pants bud!

    No, it's Steve from Oregon :) I don't believe he's a member of this site but his "tale of the worm" gets passed around quite a bit. That thing is nasty!
