Bristle worms taking over?

This is only one of many things in my tank that are covered in worms. What can I do? I counted over 20 worms when I fed the fish.

I'm not seeing any bristle worms...but they are normally coming from overfeeding in terms of over running things.

I tried to upload a video that showed a bunch on this blue thing. Did not work. I only feed every other day.

I see your having trouble with them still, arrow crabs eat them,lol but they look like spiders. There's a fish called a dolphin shark, I think that's what it's called. It's black and blue with a long skinny body. The only thing with them is they rearrange things trying to find the bristle worms. I had a dragon wrasse that would move rocks going after them it was crazy. My friend has a dolphin shark fish and it just digs and moves the sand around trying to uncover them.

I'd agree that those are bristle worms, but they are a good part of a clean up crew to have. If their numbers grow to extreme amounts, you know you are feeding too much.

I feed my fish once every 2 days for salt and once every 3 days for fresh.
I only feed 1 frozen cube of food. I have 5 small fish a crab and 3 turbo snails. Am I feeding to much?
