Bristleworm Hunter?

Hello all!
I've discovered some small worms in my sand bed (small, pink bristle-guys under 1/2" long). I assume them to be bristle worms but am not sure. If they are, is there a good hunter out there i can introduce to the tank to knock them out?
Thanx!

If its a standard bristleworm leave it in there, its a beneficial contributor to your system.

Why would you want to do that? Bristle worms are great detrivores and beneficial to the tank.

Agreed! But if for some reason you do still want them out you can put some meat in a clean pair of pany hose and prop the end open. They will crawl in and get stuck.

You might want to try that guy from eBay with the detrivore kit. I picked one up a couple of hours ago (met him in Philly) and there were a bunch of bristle worms in the LS. I'll be posting soon.

I hadn't posted it yet.

Here's the kit I got.

I just posted a new topic 'eBay detrivore kit" but was unable to post the photo's. I'll try again tomorrow if an admin can tell my why my uploads didn't work tonight.
