Very nice. However the first pic is more then just a bristle worm...it is a Caribbean bearded fireworm and a ferocious predators and will seek out food from just about any source in your tank. Corals, inverts, bivalves and fish are not safe. It is best to remove this...use caution as they are venomous.

I agree with lando, I just caught a 10 inch from my 75 (have a look http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...=661130#661130) It is a shame because they are so colorful.

Oh crud I have like four or five of those in my tank under one rock. i was told they were hamrless bristle worms so I never bothered with them. The rock is covered in zoos but I have always had trouble keeping snails and now I know why. I have to wait until I get back to Washington to get them out though, man that bites. Oh well when I set the tank up here it will be fireworm free!!!

You would be surprised what can live and make it in LR transportation. Crabs, Shrimp and worms.

I think I have a couple of those Caribbean bearded fireworm, nit sure but it does look like the picture. Are they really that dangerour. Mine lives in a rock right next to my feather duster and doesn't seem to bother it. It comes out when I add food to the tank. it sure it a freaky looking dude....

How do you get rid of a worm if it gets dangerous? The rock its living in is one of my base rocks that supports my whole reef....

Thanks

John

I think you try to catch it in a net when it is out otherwise they have some traps on sale at various online stores for worms. And I know some people have a method where they use a glass or tube and some panyhose or something like that. Look on the board people have developed DIY traps.

I found this article while trying to further my knowledge of this hobby and thought it was interesting and very relevant to this post because of a few responces to the original post.
Its about bristle worms and specifically fireworms and some misconceptions. It was written by a guy who really knows his stuff. Its in two parts here r the links to both.

Great link JM.

I've been trying to sort fact from fiction and even identify what type of worms I actually have in my tank.

I guess a good rule of thumb is that any worm that grows over 12 inches in length is trouble. it didn't get that way from not eating other things...so it may be best to remove it.
