Bristleworms
 
Is it just me or is anybody else seriously grossed out by these guys.

I caught one in my tank today omg freaked out. He was 3 inches long, im so glad I was able to catch him. I wouldn't have been able to sleep if he was still in there

I'm kinda grossed out by them but they're actually pretty cool and a good part of your cuc.

I couldn't sleep the night I discovered them in my first SW tank, once I got used to seeing them and saw how much they cleaned up the sand, I actually like how they look and the different colors and patterns they have.

There are some flatworms that are soooooo beautiful, but are predators and can kill your fish. It's really weird how that works lol

I was told the six line would eat flatworms and he has not but he might be eating bristles for me I dunno

cut back on feeding the tank and the bristle worm population will decrease. if you have large worms, you are definitely overfeeding.
