Giant worm behind mystery of vanishing fish

7 posts in this topic

Aquarium shop workers investigating the disappearance of dozens of fish found the culprit - a terrifying three-and-a-half-foot sea worm hidden in a tank for ten years.

The creepy Bobbit Worm - usually found at in the ocean at depths up to 150ft - was discovered preying on fish in the 200 gallon tank.

Ten years and no one spotted it?

How often did they clean their aquariums out? surely not every 10 years?

I know, but they don't have so many legs and stuff. It looks like a mix between a millipede and a maggot. I hate maggots.
