Bristol Worms

yesturday as I was tinkering in my 55 gallon, I found what I think was a bristol worm huge..(about 4 inches long, and about a Cm around).. and notice they are really becoming populated. Any ideas on how to keep them down? and what particular fish will eliminate them? Im now getting ready to do some heavy duty research in this area.. Thank you all in advance

If it were me, I would just leave them alone. Bristle worms are wonderful detrivores and a valuable part of your tank's infauna clean up crew.
