bristle worms god or bad


New member
When I saw my first bristle worms in my tank I really worried about them. I searched forums, ways to trap them etc. Over time I realized that they are beneficial and will help remove waste in your tank. I've been told that if there is an over-abundance of them it is probably because you're overfeeding. I've kept all types of corals, clams and amenomes and have never had them hurt anything in my tank.

They are god.

Seriously you want bristleworms in your tank, an important part backbone even of a cleanup crew. If you have too many simply feed less and they will self populate.

If you have tons of giant ones then maybe remove some but other then that they are of no harm.
