put on a kitchen glove, wait till he comes out and grab that sucka!!! then wrestle him to the floor and shoot him 3 or 4 times with a 9mm.

Seriously just wait till he comes out and grab him with a gloved hand. make sure he is at least most of the way out of the rock and you get all of him.

I kinda want him out of there knowing how big he is and that it is only gonna continue to grow, but on the other hand I know he is probably a nice part of the clean up crew (and probably has the ability to clean up a lot).

I suppose if I do remove him I would want to try and see if my LFS would take him back versus flushing him away?

I REALLY doubt they are going to want him back. There is a great debate over "bristleworm: friend or foe" I don't really mind the small ones but everyone has an opinion. But that is another can of.....worms

Well i dont think you should flush him either because thats just cruel, but to be honest, if we lived anywhere near eachother and you were getting rid of it, i'd take him off your hands.

I think you should keep him for now, and if he ever tries anything you dont like.. then i think that would be the correct time to run that botch outa town.
