Bristleworms in Refugium

I was trimming my chaeto in my refugium the other day and noticed about 15 to 20 bristleworms in it, ranging from 1" to 3" long.

I setup the refuge to create a safe harbor for pods to grow.

Will bristleworms eat pods or do they just eat detritus.

I believe they just eat detritus.

Funny that this post shows up today. In my 5g nano I watched a bristle worm eating an amphipod today. i believe it was either dead or just its molt.

LOL As slow as bristle worms are I`m surprised they could catch anything. Anything is possible Ziggy.
