Maybe a stoopid question :)

I read somewhere that when bristleworms reach a certain size that u should remove them from the tank.. is this correct? Because I have one that is pretty darn big..

if I'd have to guess(since I've never really seen his full length) I'd say he was about 8" long.. and fat..

I leave mine alone. If you are really worried about it, put it in the sump.

I've never bothered to remove bristleworms either. Never been a problem.

well.. I wasn't really freaked by it.. I thought it was cool to have such a biggun.. but then I came across this site that said they should be removed when they get so large..I was just wondering if there was any truth to it.. I named him George...

I wouldn't start to worry about them until (if) they get about a foot in length. Only when they become so large that detritus and leftovers do not fill their bellies will they start looking for alternate food sources.

Cheers
Steve
