Your worm is a bristleworm, or polychaete worm. Most are harmless. Check out the Identification forum for some ideas on what might be growing on your rocks!

I was just wondering.... what would i be able to grow on my rock? i saw at my lfs they had a live rock that already had a mushroom on it... i'd really like to see more stuff grow on my rock, instead of buying a coral or two in the future...

i have all kinds of stuff. i have featherdusters (very small), keyhole limpets that seem to be growing, and now i seem to have an ifestation of fireworms. those little F$@*ers, every water change i pull out at least 5 of them. and i have some sort of snail that i rarely see that i still can't figure out what he is.
