Hediste diversicolor is an intertidal, shallow water species, quite small.  
We did keep the related Neanthes virens, a much larger species, in a salt water 
aquarium and they did very well, taking food readily but seldom leaving the 
substrate.  Two of them lived long enough to spawn unfertilized eggs and then 
wasted away as 'ghosts.'
Other nereid species have been kept and bred in captivity,

I just had a quick question regarding rag worms or nereis diversicolor. I was 
wondering if it was possible to raise them or also if it was possible to keep 
them in a salt water tank for an extended period of time. I would greatly 
appreciate a response.
Thank you,
