Dear Hugh and all other patient annelid workers,

A good technique would be to gentle push water inside the tube with the 
help of a syringe. This might be useful both for living and preserved 
worms. Working with living terebellids and recently settled chaetopterids, 
it has also been useful to (gentle) tickle up on the tube so that the worm is 
slowly forced to move toward one of the tube ends. Both methods are 
often time-consuming, but the risks to damage the worms are lower than 
those of an extraction by tube dissection.
