Just bought a 500ml syringe. Gonna add a long clear hose to it, suck up a bit of water and food. Wait for worm to stick his head in then suck him up.
Just need to figure out what his favourite 'food' is. Is it zoas or collonista snails. It isn't amphipods, via there's loads sharing his hole.

Found him!
After all the disturbance around his hole, he disappeared. Then I left a plug of his favourite twilight pink zoas in various spots in the sand bed. It disappeared last night. He'd dragged it right into middle of rock formation. Still on sand bed level though. Used 12inch tweezers to drag frag and plug out of the crevice, along with my missing mega rainbow frag (on verge of death and separated from its plug) and a half eaten mandarin fish with various chunks out of it. Little b@stard.
Now I've re-located him I'm gonna break the tank down at earliest opportunity...armed with carbonated soda water to flush him out the rock he's in.

Not easy, but 3hours later, it's done. He had a 14inch burrow, spiralling into 5kg rock. Carbonated soda water is definitely a eunice worm nemesis, but he wouldn't shake out the rock. After splitting it I realised that's because had built a trap door out of Stomatella shell and was sitting quite happily in his own pocket of water with the door shut! Even after splitting the rock he was hard to extract and came out in pieces.

Tough little bugger too. Swiping at the tweezers trying to bite them once he was cornered.

Yeah I got a glimpse of it whilst pouring the soda water into his hole. Grabbed it with crocodile tweezers but it only came out so far then it stuck fast. But he didn't split easily. I ended up with one foot on the rock and pulling hard, before the tail started coming out in sections. Once I ran out of bits to grab I knew I'd have to split the rock.
