Thanks guys, Is a bearded fireworm a good thing or bad? Should I get it out of the tank?

If truely a bearded fireworm (Hermodice carunculata), it will be a concern with most sessile and mobile inverts. Be very careful if you choose to remove it. A baited trap consisting of a new nylon stocking would be the safest for you. Never touch them or you will end up with a severe reaction and possible infection.

Cheers
Steve

Steve,
I have been reading up on the fireworms. I think it is a fireworm too. Could I soak the rock in freah water until the worm comes out and it not hurt the live rock?
