There are a few predatory Bristleworms. They are fairly rare though.
The myth of the killer Bristleworm might have come from the fact that they are extremely efficient detrivores. They can detect when an animal has died almost immediatly. This places them at a carcass usually before the aquarist realizes they have a dead animal.
A very common story is with Maxima Clams. Maxima's look pretty good right up until they are totally dead. So, an aquarist goes to bed after seeing their clam looking pretty good. They wake up to an empty shell ful of Bristleworms. Of course they would blame the worms... they didn't do anything wrong
Keep yourBristleworms unless you see them eating something that's still alive.
