Hi all,

found these critters in my sump. Looks like it could be bearded fireworms. What do you think? I have been losing sps lately and fighting an outbreak of amphididium dinos. Are these dangerous to sps and is there anything that can be done to get rid of them? Thanks
Kevin

Thanks swc for the observation. I am happy to hear they may be regular bristle worms. I am not that familiar with them and appreciate your perspective. Cheers

Its a bristle worm. You can add more cuc to compete with them but they will out compete. Fire worms tend to have the big double bristles and get the size of a pencil. Bobbit worms are a no no.
