    That would scare me. Bristle worms are the ****roaches of the reef world, and if they all died off, I'd be very worried. Lol.

    Yeah right? Clam is happy, fish are breathing fine, corals are all full polyp extension, water tests fine, alkalinity and cal test fine, not sure what else to test

    I'd bet it wasn't ALL of them.

    I wonder if bristle worms release toxins when they die. Could that have been the problem for the urchin?

    It could be. Could have been the lime too. Or maybe the urchin finally had it with his ten year visit to the sums with nothing but aiptasia and the file fish as friends!
