i have noticed a bunch of small worm looking things mixed in with the crushed coral. the only time i can see them is when all the lights are out. i use a flashlight and shine on the tank and where the cc is laying against the glass you can see them. they are kind of brown looking with red on each end. the largest i have seen was about one inch long. are these bad if so how do i get rid of them.
thanks,
jason

Heres a Trick to Spy on any Bristle worms. (Do this at Night)
If you have a Moon light shut it off.
Leave the Tank with no Lights on for about a Half Hour.
Then without turning any room lights on, Grab a Flash Light and Shine it all around and You are bound to see 1 of those little guys Walking around.
