Lol looks like a bristle worm to me which is a good clean up crew member (but I'm not positive so let's hear from others as well)

I've also heard over and over that big ones can kill fish but have never heard of it actually happening so I'm not convinced (unless someone can prove me otherwise)?

Watched a video about it, they say that unless they get really big, that’s when they become harmful

It happens - but it's an accident in most encounters, so it's rare. But if you google you will see some pics of dead fish with bristles sticking out of their face.

You may be right, but isn't it their job to eat dead fish? Seeing one eating a dead fish doesn't mean it killed the fish, it means it's cleaning your tank

Ah, I may have read that wrong. Ya it sounds like an accident/self defense but I suppose it could happen
 

Where do you go in case of a real reef tank emergency?
