Eeek!!!

I was up tonight, and had a flashlight looking through the live rock. What I saw was a wormlike thingy that came out of a hole in the live rock, went down and grabbed something from on top of the sand and it swallowed whatever it grabbed and went inside the rock 8O 8O Also I fould what I believe is little spaghetti worms

most bristle worms are harmless and good for the tank.

peanut worms are reef safe and good to have around.
Does your fire worm look like this? http://www.reefs.org/hhfaq/pages/pic...q_bristle.html

If it does, it's just your average bristle worm which is a good addition to your clean up crew.
