    Post Bristleworm

    I have found a bristleworm in my nano tank. I've only seen part of it and that part was 2 inches long! Should I trap it or leave it in ? I have watched it eat food the fish missed but could it be harmful to other members of my tank?

    bristleworms are fine i would leave it, just part of the CUC. if you see him bugging a coral then you may have to do something but they're quite harmless.

    I have plenty. Totally harmless scavenger. I think they're more handy to a tank then not in a tank.
