That will help but it will take time. They sell commercial traps for bristleworms you could try. There is also a homemade trap someone told me about where you use a knee-hi stocking and a soda bottle. I've never tried it so I can't say if it works but may be worth trying. You put the stocking inside the bottle and roll the top down over the top of the bottle. Secure with a rubberband. Place a piece of shrimp/food in the bottom of it and lay it on it's side in the tank. The bristleworm supposedly will go inside and it's bristles will get snagged in the nylon so it can't get back out.
