bristle worms


Recommended Posts

I know there have been many posts on bristle worms. My question is are they bad for the tank or not. There are many diffrent opinions so please give me yours. I've only seen one in my tank but I've heard were there is one there are many. Any input would be great. Should I get it out or leave it in. Thanks!

IME, they are great detritivores. I have MANY, they are mostly nocturnal, and they spend all their time scavenging--never seem to upset other tank inhabitants. Here's a picture of a couple in my tank. The really large one is at least twice as long as my green-banded goby.

good detrivores but fugly


Especially the +1 footers.


Watch out for the spines, they hurt and scratch (think fibreglass fibers).
