Worms

Woke up and I thought a centipede fell in my tank. Should I take this out? Is it a fireworm? What exactly do I do. Click image for larger version

thats fine, kind of looks like a sandworm(bristleworm). They come in live rock sometimes. Im sure some fish you put in there will make a quick snack of it.
My buddy has/had some with his rock to.

that's a big guy , I usually remove them if they are bigger than 3 inch , they are a good indicator of over feeding , "Do not touch them without gloves" those bristle's are hard to get out if they get in your skin, they can cause a bad rash and do hurt.

if you do remove put it in a good sealed container and freeze to ensure its dead, these guys can live out of water upwards to a month ,

I just put the live rock in a week ago first time I'm actually seeing him.
