Red slug hitchhiker

Howdy yíall! My 3rd post on here I think, so I just got some live rock from my lfs, Iíve had hitchhikers before, usually snails and Lawnmower Bennies, but I got this rock in particular because it was a good size, and had some algae, I know my Benny would like it. I bring it home just to realize I have another snail now ďHitchhikerĒ and many red worm/slug things on it, ill add pictures, but Iím still a newbie at Saltwater, I only have 3 pieces of live rock, itís a 30 gallon tank, Iím getting more soon before I add clownfish. Anyways, I need to know if these are harmful at all, here are pictures |

Bristle worm. Harmless member of clean up crew. They have the bristles on their sides that you shouldn't touch with your bare hands. I've had many in my fingers over the years, they are annoying to get out and hurt. Others have told me it is like being stung by a bee, but I've never had them hit that hard.
