Bristle worms good, fire worms bad. Bristle worms are shorter and fatter. Fire worms are a lot longer. There's more too, but can't remember them now.

I will never have bristle worms since i have a 6 line wrasse that i will never be able to catch and they eat bristle worms. Unfortunately he's an A-hole toward my other fish

Oh! If they are timid and come out after lights off, prolly a bristle worm. If they are bold and come out any time with lights on, prolly a fire worm. I believe fire worms easy done corals, right?

by 6 do you mean 6 inches? i would sacrifice some inches for a fish that would eat them lol i had some come off my first rock, and they did die ,, when i took them out i used my hands and i was super itchy... not sure if it was related to them or not.. but after what i read i just rather not have them in my tank. would a 6 inch fish be ok in a 36 gallon?

Your hands were probably itchy because you can get pricked by the worms bristles, hence the name. 😁
