Common bristle worms are not capable of catching fish, not do they even approach a healthy fish.
Common bristle worms do not eat healthy coral.

Why does everyone think they eat fish? They eat dead or decaying matter hence the term " good part of your cuc ". A crab is more likely to prey on a live fish being an opportunistic feeder, but the fish would have to already be in a weakened state for that to even happen. Why oh why do worms get such a bad rap........

Light pink with white hair like spikes on side. My royal Gramma Basslet used share rock with some worms and always had face full of the spikes so if they eat fish then he would of had it along time ago

Pink and brown are normal they are fine to stay if you want. Fire engine red avoid those a holes.
Imo i wouldn't like any of my fish to have spikes in their face. I have a 4 inch coral banded shrimps that eat any new bristleworms that pop up in my tank
