First worm sighting...

So some very interesting things have been going on in the tank lately. At sunday bar-b-que one of our guests sitting at the tank noticed a little worm guy. When I went to check it out I noticed he was coming out of a piece of live rock, he was really small and was half pink hald black...he had tiny legs up and down his body and basically looked like an inch worm. I dont have a pic but just wondering if this sounds good or bad. It was so small though, I think its too soon to tell.

So I wait if out and let them grow until I can tell what they are, or just get em' out. I've only seen two soo fac but judging on their size there could be hundreds that I am not seeing.

I have those to. They are a species fo Bristleworm, wait till lights out and use a red light to look into the tanks, there are probably a lot more. They are scavengers and I haven't had any problems. I fed my fish frozen food last night and what they didn't eat hit the bottom. The worms (usually nocturnal) were streatching out of their hiding places and eating the food, even before the lights went out!

I guess I'll just observe them for now, unless Fluff or one of the other Elders (Elders as in wise and knowledgeable not as in age...just covering my butt) tells me otherwise...they are intersting in a creepy crawly way...they make me squirm but if they clean and eat debris than I think I can live with them.

Thanks for the insight!

I'd appreciate any more ideas, thoughts, personal experiences....Thanks!
