Identified on another forum as a common bristle worm nothing to worry about. Yay!

What kind of light is that? I like the blue tint it has.

The tank had the spike and I am going to do a water change tomorrow to get the nitrites and ates down. Just waiting for a diatom bloom to add a CUC. Added my Maxi Jet 600 for extra current. Beat a cyano problem. Waiting for coraline to grow and make my tank look better.
My water is cloudy a bit because I spent 2 days fiddling with the aquascape and it ended up looking similar to bear's old look. Can't wait to start building it up.
Ammonia: .25ppm, pH: 7.8-8.0, Nitrite: .25ppm

Thanks! Ya the actinics make it look so blue on the camera but in real life it looks PURE white not like a paint but just pure light type white it is amazing.

Quick question: I am mixing some salt to do a small water change since the tank has cycled and I need to buffer a few things up and bring a few things down. What could I do with the water I take out? It feels a waste of money just to toss, but if I have no other options I guess I have to toss.

Think my bristles are dead too... Since I moved every rock and the ammonia spike so I'm looking for those.
