Thanks for any info... Im worried that the nem is a haddons carpet mostly because of the spots on the stem and he doesnt seem to like it if i dont feed every day, which i know most nems youre not supposed to but the haddons you are, or so my book says

The bristle worms you got to watch out for are the fire bristle worms...like their name they are a bright red (they are not hard to miss)...those things will not only attack your fish, but also anything else it can sink its teeth into...

the purple/pink bristle worms are tank friendly and feed mainly on dead stuff and left over food...mine will go as far as too eat my lionfishies poop...however they won't eat algae ; ;...they can grow to very large sizes, but are easily removed with traps...unless their population is out of control or you got some 'mother of all bristle worms', i would just leave them alone...

as for the nem. i have no idea :P but your clown seems to like him ^^

I have heard of cases where a clown will host a small anemone to death but not a larger one. Someone on this forum must be into anemones in a big enough way to figure out what kind it is.

that's a common bristle worm. he's safe. the fire worms are not called that because they are red. they are called that because when you get poked by them, your hand will feel like it's on fire.
google "fire worm images". some are common bristles, but you'll see the really ornate ones of different colors.

i'm not sure about the anemone. try a few more pics.

Try mysis shrimp or small pieces of silver siders. Also, clowns sometimes feed their anemone.
