    Have a chromis missing this morning and noticed fresh sand around this rock as shown in the pics. The rock fell of the other day and needs epo puttying back in place but not sure whether there could be something nasty inside.

    difficult to get a pic because the hole is facing the other way, didn't want to disturb it by moving the rock.

    If I was you I'd have it out and in some RO unless you have a pistol shrimp then it could be that?

    don't have a pistol shrimp, that I know of anyway. Picked up this piece of rock just a couple of weeks back, will take the rock out and investigate then I think.

    Well it turned out to be a giant eunice worm, pulled it out this morning as it was half sticking out of the rock. Turned into mush as it has been in ro for a few days so couldn't get a pic. It was big though.

    I was thinking the exact same thing mate when I was pulling out the worm. The thing was huge and I'm sure there is still more of it left in the rock (dead of course though).

    it looks intact as I was pulling it out until it hit the sink and then just went splat so the pic would have just been of some mushy stuff in the sink. Didn't smell the best either.
