They don't cut you, the spines come off in your skin. I have been caught out often. No dramas

The original question said the worms are 'on' the rock. I assume attached. I have these worms that have a bit of a 'pipe' that they extend and retract from. They are like mobile hair that reaches to fetch particles to feed on.

That's a pic of a bristle worm in my tank. They have a toxin in them if I remember correctly. Probably like getting a bee sting

I've seen about 10 of them out at one time. Mine come out day or night. They even come out when I feed my fish.

I think I have the same thing on my live rock. White and stringy like thread. They stretch out on the rock and sand like tentacles searching for food. Not bristleworms and seem harmless. I'm curious as to what they are too.

Those are probably Vermetid snails,
