    I got home today to find Odo overrun by bristle worms.

    I'm pretty sure they didn't kill him, but it still sucks.

    Well, 0 for 2, think I'll lay off for a while

    Sorry to hear about Odo :(

    Try to find out what could have caused this to ensure that it does not happen again.

    RIP Odo

    I think I've narrowed it down to the ghost shrimp I fed yesterday.

    It was a new batch from the LFS.

    As for how long I had him,
    I figured it out

    got a cuttlefish, 14 days later sucked into a pump.
    made the tank free of all pumps and added new screens to the drains
    got an octo, 14 days later died of ??

    I think I need to look into perhaps an anemone tank :goofysca:

    anyway, I'll wait and see what happens after X-mas

    I had a baby die of unknown reasons acouple weeks ago after only a week. Sometimes there are no reasons. Did you check your water quality? Anyway, hope you try again! They are deffinately worth the effort and the heartache!!!!

    You are probably correct Carol...I just know that this time, we are going with a captive bred bimac..no more wild caught stuff for me...
