yesterday I went to fish den to buy some turbo snails i get home and throw them in my tank . then they weren't moving so like 3 hours later . I pick 1 up and it got a bristle worm on it and i took them all of of my tank should !
should i worry about bristle worms in my tank? since i got rid of all the turbo snails I bought yesterday?

A) i wouldnt buy livestock from fish den.. just my ten cents.
B) bristol worms are ok in proportion.
C) get a wrasse.. he will eat the heck outta those bristols

turbos are great algea eaters!! if they are in good health i would keep em!

Maybe each fish is different in what they may or may not eat. Fish den blows and there prices are through the roof i would pick sherman tanks over them any day. And i wouldnt worry about bristle worms as stated above there a part of your clean up crew

1+ for shermans.... they are way better priced!
Also if you are looking for RO water and you are coming from loveland i would go to liquid kingdom (120th + Main).. just for water that is.. otherwise they will give you aptasia and flatworms for FREE!! (thats not a good thing!)
Have you thought about purchasing an RO filter.. i have seen a bunch for sale on here as of late!
and as far as the sixline.. he would def eat the heck outta those bristols! and they are awesome fish!

If a bristleworm is attacking a turbo snail then that turbo is most probably doomed anyway. Bristleworms have an uncanny aptitude to sense death/dying quickly.
