LOL..that's my opinion on those corals. They are ugly brown and spread very quickly.

Are these bristle worms good ones or bad ones? Someone told me today that there are bad ones.

Some people have this weird thing about bristle worms and are convinced they are the source of all evil. As far as I can tell, all they do is clean up and poke out when it's feeding time.

I believe they lump all worms together and some of them actually do eat corals, but not the one pictured. It will never eat a healthy coral. some folks think they can catch and eat a healthy fish, but that's total nonsense.

I have this algae on my glass. Does anyone know what it is? How do I control it and get rid of it?

So this algae will not cause any harm just needs to be cleaned off? Is there any way to prevent it?

Besides having your lights on less, not really. You are going to be cleaning this stuff off no matter what.
