Bristle worms in a seahorse tank

Does anyone know how to get rid of bristle worms in a seahorse tank? I know arrow crabs do the job they're not suppose to be in a seahorse tank because they are opportunistic feeders. Any advice would be appreciated because there is an overwhelming amount of these guys in my tank. Thanks!

Sorry bud the only way I know is a wrasse, arrow crab or dotty back, and those are no garentees, and you would need a he'll of a lot of traps for a big population. Oh by the way if you look in your tank and it looks like someone poored a glass of milk in there, get ready for a whole lot more.

you are overfeeding. cut back on the amount of food available for them and you'll see less and less of them. i would vacuum the tank bottom after every feeding to ensure nothing is left for them.
