Here's a shot of the bristleworm; it doesn't seem to be one of the predatory species that causes problems. Those are some of the urchin's spines across the image, so you can tell how small the worm is.

Once more under a cut ... )

Spotted in the reef tank because it was moving fast ... didn't get a good photo, but did snap two rough images. Size is just under 1/4" not counting the "antenna" (which I think are actually on the rear and not antenna). Pretty sure it isn't something we introduced to the tank, unless it hitched a ride inside a hermit crab shell. Pretty sure it's a hexapod (or isopod) of some sort, and pretty sure I've seen something like it in tidepools, though I don't remember what it was IDed as.

EDIT: Just saw a bristleworm in the tank, too. Got pix, post 'em later.

EDIT THE SECOND: seems to be a munnid isopod.

Cut for those who aren't interested )
