bristle worm

I have a lot of bristle worms in my tank, some small and some really big! What is a good way of getting rid of these worms? I have a nice size arrow crab. But he stays on one side of the tank, and the majority off the bristle worms are on the other side. Any ideas?

I think a 6 line wrasse might eat them if they aren't too big already.

You really dont want to get rid of all of them. They are gppd janitors. I live in Midlothian Va. I didnt think there was two towns with that name.

Small bottle trap will work.Check it a couple hours after your tank has been in the dark.But agree you want to keep some.

Bristle worms are good. You dont want too too many, but theyre really good at cleaning up. If they look like they are eating ur fish or livestock, it died and it is consuming it.
