Who keeps moving my plugs?... A Eunicid worm! -Now Caught!

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.

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.

Your lucky....a bloke on UR had a two and a half foot eunice worm.....glad you got him out....in pieces by the look of things ..lol
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.
