Bristleworms

I have found 3 bristleworms in my live rock. I have a fowlr setup. Are these worms something to be concerned about if I am not doing a reef tank?

Nah, but if they get too numerous, you can always get critters that'll keep them in order. No worry on bristle worms.

bristleworms are good, fireworms are bad. just make sure that you know which is which because i know that a lot of people, including myself, get confused about the differences at first.

Bristleworms

The are good for stirring the sand and eating the "nasties" in the LR/sand. If you can get a pic, we can probably tell you what they are.

PS.
Don't grab them with your bare hands, they will sting you.

Mine tend to come out at night or if food falls next to them.
