ID:	211288 Saw this last night in my tank, I know big worms are a sign of over feeding, but I fed pellets, flakes and frozen every 3 days I don't mind having the bristle worm I was actually trying to get some to come out with that whole shrimp in the picture. Just thought I would share a picture with y'all! Thanks

Nice. Here's a pic I took after intentionally feeding a refugium I've kept-



And this one is a worm that preys on sessile and slow moving inverts, called Oenone Fulgida (those are legs, not bristles)

Over feeding is dependent on what and how many your feeding , a bristle worm that size is being supported by a lot if left over food
