They are bristle worms.
A very good addition to a clean up crew .
Amazing scavengers .
But as said their population will multiply rapidly and they will grow huge if they are over fed .
I was suggested not to touch anything in my tank without gloves on.
I got stung by my anemone after I got it . And just added a Foxface Rabbitfish ,
I'm kinda scared to put my hands in without gloves .
Bristle worms were the only thing that lived through my cycle .
