Worms from Coral

I just put a few new corals in my tank that I dipped beforehand. A few minutes after putting them in the tank I saw around 4 worms come from the Kenya tree coral into the rock. I managed to get one of them out. There are two different kinds that I have seen. One is red on the ends and black in the middle. The other are more orange. They look like bristle worms. Are these the dreaded fireworm? Any chance these could be good hitchhikers or am I in for it?

It's crazy looking at the number of different worms that are on there and then still to not see one that looks exact. I am pretty confident that they were bristle worms. Whether they were fire worms or not is the question.
