These tube worms are so white at times they can seem blue in a way.
With this one Simon had to snap off this one third with no tube, as you can see the rear end has sealed up nicely ready to get into its new life.
Being a segmented worm, these are the ribbing along the worm; each segment will reproduce a complete tubeworm.
The part of the worm left behind will reproduce its self nicely, if waters remain 25c or below.
They die from 25c and up, hence temperate species.
He is putting this one in its own container with shell grit just in that shell grit so it will make a new tube and bind the shell grit to the new tube so there is protection for when it is added to the aquarium and the grit will weight it down so the spot it goes to, it stays there.
They usually make a basic transparent tube in a couple of days, then a full on tube in two weeks and a new filter feeding small head finished in under four weeks.

There are a few temperate forms in here.
