Agreed it is a standard bristle worm. They are a free cleanup crew. Usually hide during day and come out at night. As long as you dont grab one they are not an issue.

Bristleworm, from the looks of it this one looks like a harmless detritivore. They’ll also scavenge and eat uneaten fish/coral food as well as consume dead and decaying matter. So if you have a dead or dying fish/invert or coral these guys will turn up to clean up.

Do you own a fish trap and acclimation box or just one or the other?
