Worms are breaking out. They gonna escape into OP's apartment and insert themselves into his body while he sleeps.

Op you need to kill them before they kill you. We know how you do this. Drain the tank of water and replace it with alcohol then light it.

i remember in the biology lab at my school like, there was a hosed up aquarium tank that had been there forever, and it was all full of algae and glop and had no fish in there, but there were some crazy fast swimming worms that did the reverse wriggle thing like you described. I always wondered what they were. that lab was creepy as gently caress, it had all jars of deformed animal fetuses and some really decayed butterfly collections.

Actually this sounds awesome as gently caress.

You should have eaten a sandwich in there (the lab not the tank) during a storm and read "The Neverending Story".

cheese update: it sunk to the bottom of the tank and the damsels are guarding it. They don't eat it but the mollie fry keep trying to sneak in and bite. Every time a damsel fish notices, they visciously attack the interlopers

I'm not sure fish can digest dairy, for the obvious reasons. So they should be fine with Taco Bell cheese.

applied varying granulations of BK meat product to the water's surface 7 times.
applied fish food to water surface
sprayed purified water on the water's surface

they were attracted by all of the food items but they would not return to the BK after the first bite. also, BK had least motivation to bite in the first place.

fish food had best "return for multiple bites" rate and moderate inital bite reaction

they also were most highly motivated by the water spray but seemed confused when no solid food appeared and obviously could not bite it multiple times

This week rear end nigga trying to make us sypathize for some centipede looking rear end lil son of a bitch because he knew that "There's a white many legged creature in my aquarium" wouldn't get no views. Personally I hope this loving worm friend of the family dies. That's what he deserves.

The stories from your tank are somewhere between disgusting and mysterious. How did an anemone almost get near you while you were changing water?

There's a new guy in the tank, I call it scooter
it's some kid of pod thing that comes to the water's surface and shoots around at night
it doesn't come out every night but it's kinda neat. It's like one of those bugs that runs along the water's surface but it runs around upside down under the water

they're homebodies. dig dirt 24-7. few things tho:

theres a pile of snails rolling around in the sand does this mean they're fuckin?

also goldy and balony lips look like their losing weight i'm scared
I been feeding more but i'm worried cause they aren't fat & sassy like they used to be should I just dump the whole can of food in? maybe 1/4 pound left

on the upside goldies kids in particular are doing really well and ther's a neat variety of colors, from goldfish-style to peach to red and ruddy. Also some of the little ones are really dark metallic bronze and are gonna be when they get big. Interesting variety of fin shapes too it's gonna be cool in like a year when they're adult

Ok, so I was looking closely at the tank just now, and a conical excavation is forming in the sand right in front of me. I don't know what's doing it, it's like the grains in the bottom of this little pit are disappearing altogether. Then the sides of the pit cave in some and the process repeats and it's getting deeper and bigger. You can see it was actually much larger earler, but then one of the dumb fish blew by and caved in almost the whole loving thing

These are all in cronological order.



you can see one of those legworms from before, it's in the "subduction zone" i thought it was gonan get eaten




Theres another snail also in peril




Tried to gently caress with the color settins but any change made it worse









Here's where i tried updating before. While i was turned around the suction stopped and bot the snail and legworm were able to escape. It started back up though











This thing is nasty as hell and huge, this is the single largest animal in the tank. It has to be at least as wide as a dime, but it might be bigger, it almost never went near the glass

if you squint you can see the arms of a brittle star

as you can see the tank is heavy planted and needs pruning. I guess when I go to do it i'll at least have plastic sissors, but aquatic poo poo is fast as gently caress. better get the chainmail gauntlets.

looking at the tank with lights off. At least the crab's still alive and stompin around. There's no trace of the sandworm... except there are a few more caved in subduction zones. the place where the attack on snail happened is back to normal and you coulnd't even tell anything happened over there, except the strata is a little weird. creepy.

I've got this thread bookmarked, I'll never leave you SWC.

Thanks for taking photos anyway, even if they are terrible.

If the sand gets sucked down then it must be exported to somewhere right? Like some kind of filter feeder is just pumping it right through? Have you looked around for a blowhole?

Alternative investigative procedure: try dropping something into the sarlacc pit. Like a piece of tuna fish or a glob of ice cream or a genuine sliver of the True Cross.
