I bought a mushroom frag today which actually grew on a snail shell. I was debating on dipping it when I big Orange work came slithering out for the shell! Is this something I should try to get rid of with the dip or introduce to my tank? I currently don’t have any in my tank

It actually looks like there’s a whole family of them

Will the dip kill the worms? I don’t mind adding get them if they’re good and will try to take them out before dipping if possible
Yes, it will kill them. They’re good at clean up… only come out when lights are out, so you never really see them.

Yes dipping would kill the bristleworm(s). They are harmless in the tank and will multiply quickly. They are good part of a CUC but some people avoid them because they are kind of creepy. Especially when you see them crawl out of every hole in every rock in your tank.
