mmmm bristle worm spaghetti

i have a coral banded shrimp and i've seen him quite often chowing down on bristle worms. He gets them and eats them slowly, a bit like spaghetti. He really seems to enjoy them. They're the pink and black ones. There's still lots in the tank so I was just wondering if this is normal or if it will hurt him (the shrimp).

Normal. Bristleworms are just a food source with a type of protection that works against some but not all.
