If you have corals, I would be a little cautious because I actually had one crawl up in my goniopora and munch on it

Your goni was probably dying. It tends to die in closed systems. They don't go after healthy corals.

He was dying lol 😂
You can't get those suckers to last more than a year or so, unless you literally live for the coral, it was just upsetting because he was still looking pretty while he was slowly dying, and the bristle just made that speed up
