I wonder if any predator will get after mine, they are largely growing IN established SPS colonies. I wonder if a snail would cross healthy SPS tissue to pursue a vermetid. Here's to hoping!

ThRoewer, I wonder if contacting a large importer like route66 or liveaquaria or someone like that with the "business proposal" of getting them to import the animals would work?

I have a question. To ID if I have vermitids.

I have caught a vermit snail two times. Casting it's web gave away the location.
I found the mound and carved it out.

I have never seen any more since that time (the Mound or tubes).

But I recently noticed this.
Every time I used a powerhead to blow off detritus off my rocks, the whole tank goes particulate crazy.
Briefly afterwards, everywhere I look. All rocks show a web threads everywhere.
These thread I can't see till I make up a dust storm and then the webs show up catching the dust.

Does that mean I have vermitids everywhere, and I simply can't see their web due to a high flow tank and no particulates?
And are there vermitids that don't make mounds or tube?
