bristle opinions?

Like many in this hobby I enjoy just watching the tank to see if anything pops out. Well I noticed a small bristle worm.. about inch and a half long about 1/8 inch think maybe even smaller then that just moving along on some live rock shortly after lights out.. anyhow what's everone opinion. I know I've read enough that they pose no real threat to my reef tank but... i desided to google them in stumbled upon many forums about poeple trying to get rid of them.. any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.

If you want you can remove them. JMO but why waste all the time and money to get rid of something that's helping keep your tank clean?

Just wear gloves whenever you're in the tank from now on

Yep, nothing that could leach into the water. You really don't want to be touching those bristles

Latex will work, just rinse your hand first with the gloves on.
The spines on the worms are not that deadly. They will cause a rash. Just don't eat one....
