    worm in table top acro

    hi guys and gals, I just picked up an acro that to my amazement has a worm living inside one of the branches. I was going to leave it. Is it a problem? thanks for your opinions.
    Gerry.

    Gerry,
    Could you be more specific? Would it perhaps be a barnacle, Vermitillid snail? These are all common in stony corals.

    yep, i think its a fan worm, looks like the little brother of the coco worm I have, except its black and white, instead of red.

    :ummm: ...uuummmmm???? If it looks like a small Coco worm, you sure it's not a Xmas tree worm rather than a fanworm ( sorry Liv ).
