aefw research

Hello Mitch,

I found your aefw article particularly useful and humorous. Currently, I am conducting my masterís research at Hofstra University on the genus of aefw that you mentioned in your article.

My question is: do you know any current hobbyists that still have problems with this coral predator that would be willing to send me infected frags? I have sequestered specimens from both Atlantis Aquarium in Riverhead NY, and a coral wholesaler down south, but I could definitely use about 100 to 200 hundred more worms. Right now I attempting to describe their predation rates on aquacultured acropora. I can be reached at

Thanks very much,

-Drew Lynford

Hey Drew. I did a search on this site and found some threads where folks are trying to be rid of them. You might send a private message or email to some of these folks:

Or, another idea would be to start a thread in the SPS forum and tell folks your story. I'd bet you'll get some responses of folks that have infected systems. Here's the SPS forum:
