    Coco worms - Protula magnifica

    I saw a pic of these on JL's new and noteworthy page, does anyone have a pic of them just starting to grow?

    I just noticed a red worm and it is pretty much the same colour as the one growing in my tank, just wondering if this is what it is. Is there any other types of red fan worms?

    It is currenlty too small for me to get a pic of it.
    55 Gallon w 22 lbs of live sand and 40 lbs of crushed coral.
    60 lbs of live rock. 220 watts PC lighting.

    Damsel, clowns, xenia, digitata, green star polyps, torch, zoo's, candycane, shrooms.

    I guess it could be this one as well

    (Protula bispiralis)

    But they both seem to be called Coco worms

    Actual Coco worms are somewhat bigger and always have 3 featherduster heads. The tube is white with a red inside. There "is" however, a common type feather duster that grows readily on LR in reef tanks, but they are just a common duster with one head and stay rather tiny. Easily confused for one another though in the beginning.
