I think you try to catch it in a net when it is out otherwise they have some traps on sale at various online stores for worms. And I know some people have a method where they use a glass or tube and some panyhose or something like that. Look on the board people have developed DIY traps.

I found this article while trying to further my knowledge of this hobby and thought it was interesting and very relevant to this post because of a few responces to the original post.
Its about bristle worms and specifically fireworms and some misconceptions. It was written by a guy who really knows his stuff. Its in two parts here r the links to both.

Great link JM.

I've been trying to sort fact from fiction and even identify what type of worms I actually have in my tank.

I guess a good rule of thumb is that any worm that grows over 12 inches in length is trouble. it didn't get that way from not eating other things...so it may be best to remove it.

It's Dr. Ronald Shimek. Whatever he says is GOLDEN. I use his books for reference
