Q&A - Medusa Worm
By Rob Toonen
Rob, I've had a 12" long Medusa Worm in my tank for a couple months now, and have had a hard time finding info on it for health and longevity. It would stay out in the open when I first had it, but now seems content hiding and burrowing under the reef. Do you have any supplemental feeding suggestions other than to let it scavenge?

Bob Schichtel (Delray Beach, Florida) writes to Bob about: Coral Shrinking
Hi Bob, I emailed you about a year ago asking for some help in designing a new 110 gallon reef tank, which I appreciated greatly. I had purchased your four booklets at that time and read each one a few times. That aquarium uses a 1" plenum with a 4" sand bed using 2 - 4 mm CaribSea AragaLive. My problem is that since day one I have had a hard time with some gorgonians (especially the small yellow finger and red finger gorgonians) and orange and yellow cup corals.
