Hi all. Can someone help me identify if the picture is of a fireworm or a bristle worm? I think bristle worm, but am to new at the hobby to know for sure. Any help is appreciated.

I have a bunch in the tank. I had read that having bristle worms were not necessarily a bad thing (I don't have any corals in this tank) Is the dorvillidae worm good/bad?

Both dorvillidae and bristle worms are good scavengers .

their population numbers and length depends on available food
