Guess what, guess what, guess what, guess what, guess what??

I was looking really closely at my substrate and i was these little spiny worms, and I asked my boyfriend if they were bristle worms. He came over and said, looks like it. Then he said, "Hey this isn't a bristle worm, it has a body, it's a Brittle Star!!"
So YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!
They are pale white and very tiny. I'd take a picture but my camera won't zoom in that close. I guess there was some cooler stuff hidden in that live rock that i bought. I love not having to pay extra for cool things .
On a side note, how do I tell which bristle worms are which and which ones are bad?

LoL, you just wait, that one white brittle star will become 1000 in a couple months. They multiply like rabbits. However they are great fauna for your system, so the more the merrier. As far as the bristle worms go, anything but a fire worm is fine, and your chances of getting one are likely slim anyhow.

Hey congrats.. I just found a little star in one of my rocks today too! It's got thin long arms with banding on them, not sure if it's a serpent or brittle.

Congrats

don't worry about the bristleworms (fireworms are the same thing, just red) they are both detrivores and eat left over food and waste. They're only bad if you touch them
