I have angered the gods

I don't know what I did, but apparently it was unforgivable because now there is a bobbit worm lurking in my 20g. I've set a water bottle trap for him, and no luck over the past few days. So I'm taking THE WHOLE TANK AND THROWING IT IN THE BULK TRASH BIN.

Before you do that try a mouse trap. Not the wood ones but those plastic ones. I've seen the work several times. The trick is to find something the worm wants while not catching your other animals.

amazing tale

Slapshot & friends-

thank you for this riveting tale. I created an account after reading this and may get a beginner set up now because my interest has been thoroughly piqued.

I hope you are all well, and bobbit-free!

Cheers

Glad it is still interesting to people. It's a nightmare I'm glad to have behind me!

thank you for this chronicle, I hope it stays up for years and years to come.

@slapshot, assuming one doesn't care about their aquarium and their sole goal was to eliminate a bobbit worm they found.. smashing the whole thing into pieces and exposing the worm would be an option for extraction, wouldnt it?
