bristle worm problem

today i was looking around in my tank, and i came across a very small bristle worm.. im pretty sure there are more of them if there is one..

my question is, how can i get rid of these things? is there something that kills them or eats them?

I wouldn't get rid of them. More good than bad IMO.

they are benifical and keep the substrate mixed up. I found one that was four or five inches in my tank. After I checked here, it stayed in.

I disagree. I had a 6 inch bristle I allowed to live in my home for some time. At first he acted as he should and everything was fine. Before too long tho' he was borrowing money and drinking my beer. Six months later he ran off with my wife, so it wasn't all bad. Anyway, I wouldn't trust the little bugger.
