big bad bristle worm

I was feeding my clown fish and somebody else decided that they were big and hungry enough to come out for food. It's one of those pink and black bristle worms but i think he's been getting alot of food. the rock anenome behind him is about 4 inches wide. i know they get big but huge worms crawling around in my tank....i don't want to change water anymore...

OMG!

I would move house! I am so terrified of worms!

Do these just appear in SW tanks? If so, I am never getting one!

I seen one 5x that size. IT was in a LFS tank. They kept him in a tank with rumble rock to show customers what they look like.
