Funny you should mention that because I'm worried about my new skimmer . I'm about to dry my tank out anyway so thats why I was wondering if they could survive out of water. Would foam on the skimmer pump intake help?prattreef said:Yes tube worms or some sort of vermetid snail. I'd just leave them alone. You have no idea how many of these I have growing in my skimmers... but then again, I'm not a hyper drive BMW skimmer at peak performance kind of guy. I do think it is a losing battle to try to elimate them though... kind of a big part of the "live" in live rock. Randy
If they stay in the tank thats one thing. But these guys got all over my deltec ap600 and if they get all over my barr thats where I'm drawing the line.Deanos said:Paul, I think you'd have a better chance killing amphipods individually with a sewing needle than eradicating all traces of these snails.
