Do you have any large ones? That's a baby compared to the ones I've got.

i tend to trap em before they get this size.  i know people like em, me, not so much.  when he's not all stretched out he looks massively beefy.

I'll take him if nobody else wants him.  I don't mind them, I'm pretty sure they're responsible for completely devouring a dead fish i put in the refugium area of my sump in only one night.  Not sure how..... but no "evidence" of a dead fish the next day tells me something did a magic trick.... probably a large bristle worm.

I have the green one... they are kinda hard to find now... but has never let me down.   I see one in the rockwork, i put some frozen shrimp in the center part, drop this by the rock... in the morning hes stuck.   They make newer "better bigger" ones... but this one hasn't failed me

That's not very sporting, Isaac!  I catch mine the old fashioned way - sneak up on them and snatch them w/ forceps!  Rarely works at all, and truly rare to catch a whole worm.  I'm in the camp w/ Gig 'Em - catch and kill, because there are a hundred more you can't see.
