Bristle Worm

I recently was glancing around in my tank and spotted a fairly long bristle worm, it is red and somewhat resembles a centipede . Are these bad ?

There are many types of brittle worms. Only one is bad, and I have only ever seen one.
These guys will get as big as there is food in the tank. Will be a very early sign of over feeding.
