Six-liners can be aggressive. There are many different species of wrasse that will eat bristle worms. Some people have even had success with a harlequin tusk. I know there is even a type of wrasse that will go into the sand to eat the bristle worms (i can't remember the name sorry ; ; ). It is a give or take on wither or not the fish will eat bristle worm. I would suggest finding a wrasse you really enjoy and it won't out grow your tank and keep your fingers crossed -.^.

Best way to keep bristle worms under control is to not over feed the tank. Having a couple is a good thing because they clean up uneaten food before it rots but if you have a bunch you are over feeding your tank.

I just read up on them says they will become destructive and will eat invertebrates.. Really cool looking though I see them at the LFS and just pass them up because I thought they were not reef safe.

True I had been over feeding a while back but I have drastically cut back due to my Nitrates being high.
