Bristle worms are a huge benefit to a reef system. They will quickly consume corpses of fish and inverts that might otherwise go unfound without tearing apart all of your rockwork. They also help consume detritus from your system. Unless they get quite large (excess of 6") there is no major cause for concern. And yes, as previously stated, I would avoid touching these guys with your bare hands.
my girl friend can't put clown gobbies in her tank cause at night the clown gobies rest on a rock and the bristle worms come out and eat them.she lost one a night until she gave up owning small fish that laid down at night.hers are pretty agressive so she and i are afraid to try clams also because bristle worms will crawl in and eat some clams.her worms cam from my tank.i figure their just a very healthy agressive strain.i looked em up an their just the typical kind,mostly arround 3 or 4 inches.
