10x magnification on E200, brightfield. From my reef aquarium found in some macro algae.

Here is a link explaining how they feed.

Hello Waldo,

many thanks for posting this picture from the bristleworm and for the indication of the interesting side about how they feed (I did'nt know anything e.g. about the function of the proventricle in these animals).
