Photo reference for common "What is this?" critter

Well I got some decent photos of some common critters that many people often ask the question "What is this?" so I figured we should have a thread with photos of common need to be identified critters.

This thread will be locked so only admins and mods can edit and add to this list. Should you have a good photo we might ask permisson to add it to the list.

Bristleworm



This is a bristleworm. Bristle worms are common detravore that live in the live rocks and the sandbed of a reef tank. While these critters look mean and nasty 99% of them are totally harmless to your reef and your fish.

A common inhabitant of a reef tank or a FOWLR tank.
