Bristleworms ?!!!

I have started to get infested with these pink worms living in my figi rock. They haven't harmed anything but are multiplying. I think they're bristleworms. Please help with any ideas on how to eliminate them.

Cleaner shrimp don't touch them, arrow crabs will destroy them though. Cut back on feeding too, that will help. They aren't bad though

Two videos doesn't mean they do it regularly. I've never seen mine touch one. Arrow crabs and six lines are guaranteed to eat them.
