    So most recently I've decided to build a new saltwater aquarium and I bought some live rock normally I always choose dry rock but I ended up getting live rock but I have had my live rock cure for about 2 months and noticed some worm like things in the rocks can anyone let me know if it's some parasite I was considering bleaching my rock and drying it out making it to dry rock as I prefer dry rock

    I believe those are peanut worms. They are safe and eat detritus.

    I was told by others that they are harmless but should I bleach them now

    I wouldn't bleach them, I mean they are safe. Unless you don't want them.

    Alright then I guess no bleaching I will avoid live rock in the future only because I prefer dry rock

    It's sometimes better to use dry rock instead Of live rock because there are some hitchhikers on live rock.

    Yea that is why I always go with dry rock it's usually cheaper but I got this live rock for $1 a pound so I couldn't refuse if I ever feared of hitchhikers I would bleach

    That's a good deal. But since there isn't any bad hitchhikers on the live rock I wouldn't bleach it.
