both were likely from me. I want one because they sound creepy and cool. I am willing to pay well for this creature, so if you know anyone or have any leads, please tell me more

Why does anyone actually want to buy these things? I have seen two requests of these?
Maybe because they are a highly unique and interesting animal that few have ever seen let alone in a display? Why would anyone want to keep any of the things we do?

I would like to find one as well and I would have one already if I had known there was one in my macro algae tank before I drained it. Only found it when it was too late.

I remember the one at choice. It was super interesting before going into the formaldehyde.

I'm not sure I could ever sleep at night for fear it would get out of the tank.

I'm pretty sure this is why my gf doesn't want me to acquire one. I just can't believe I was putting my hands all over my tank with that thing living in there. I mean it's one thing to know it's in there and be prepared but not knowing it was there was a bit creepy.

Now boys, mine was very friendly in the end. He was responding to hand feeding and all. How many creatures can eat sps like an ear of corn? They are remarkable, but I hope I never see one again! Speaking of keeping them you do know why they are named "Bobbit Worms" don't you? Nope don't want anything like that in my house!!!

They are actually a very common hitch hiker in LR. They are in many more tanks then most people realize.

Never watch Tremors the same way again

Well I thought these would be rare when I read about them on wired.com a while back. Now I realize they could be in my tank at some point.......*CHILL*.....better stock up on some super glue and trout hooks.-music

My friend in Maryland recently ordered macro algae from reefs2go and had one come in as a hitchhiker. He has it in a separate tank and Is deciding if he wants to maintain it... Definitely a bobbit

This post is over 7 years old, yet I still see people share it when bobbit worms are brought up, and I think that's pretty awesome. Tons of people from all over the country have read about your battle with the Bobbit worm!

One reason they are so successful at sneaking into tanks is because they can be very hard to find. If they are small, they can fit into some tiny holes and bury themselves in the middle of a rock. Just check the rock as best you can.

Yes, puff is right.. The one I had, had to be extremely small, because it took a while for me to see it.. But it off course grew, and that's when I got him...

All you can do is set some food out and see if it disappears. If it does you need a red light and time to sit there at night and see if you can find it
