Help!

Pink wormy things are cropping up all over my LR when I drop in food!!! I see them popping out of the LS too. WHAT ARE THEY? should I try to eradicate them? Last count, I had about 6 of them.

I think they're bristle worms, but wait, do they have bristle on them? Coz those worms usually pink in color...

Yes, they are bristly looking. Almost like hair on them. Do I need to get rid of them? My clownfish seems spooked lately

Please check this thread
bristle worms??

somebody just asked about it also. I think it's okay to have in your tank as long as it's not too many.

Looks like a the fireworm variety. Predatory and can hurt a lot if touched I believe. Brisltworms are no big deal to be in the tank. But these hairy ones are fireworms I believe.

I once saw a thread in another site saying it killed a clown fish. Hmmm....

That particular one likely won't help. He's the smaller variety.
