    Just to put you at ease, it's rather rare to get a "bad" bristlewormy. The most common "bad" type ( and remember I said it's rare) are all a solid deep fire red color.

    Does this "solid deep fire red color" have white bristles on it?

    toutouche, if you can check the site that barry_c posted from
    reef central http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2003-04/rs/index.htm
    the one I saw in my tank looked like this one, the hermodice, it was eating a dead snail and when I put the light up close to see it, it pulled back taking the whole shell of the snail right into the hole in the rock.
