Oenone fulgdia worm trap help

I'm 99% positive that I have one of these worms and I'm scared haha. I need help trying to get the thing as I have never seen it until last night. So instructions on how to make an effective trap would be great thanks guys/girls.

A commercial bristleworm trap might work. Some models can extend to allow for larger/more worms. Pretty cheap, so I'd give it a shot.

Well, essentially you need a way for the worms to get in, but not back out. And bait. A typical cut/inverted bottle trap works for larger things, but you may have to make the opening smaller.

Haven't you been having issues with your tank recently? I'm sure you just have an overfed bristleworm.

No not really my parameters are perfect in my tank and I don't think I have bristle worms because I had a banded coral shrimp and I read they eat them plus this worm leaves a clear slim behind it

Well, these guys make prey of clams. Why are you concerned about this guy?
Take a tall glass, tilt it on the side of a rock, and put some food inside. You'll catch whatever it is.

Because I also have some dwarf crabs I had a snail that died after three days of being in the tank I plan on getting some clams and corals and stuff later on when I get money
