Bristle worms...good or bad?

Recommended Posts

Bristle worms can be a great part of a clean up crew. However, as long as their numbers are kept in check, you should not have any issues. I find a few here and there in my tanks. Worst experience I have had was with my 120g. I would feed and they would come out of the rock work. I am talking a good solid 75+. They would devour any remaining food or piece of flesh they can find. Ended up shutting tank down and restarting with all new rock.

There’s a few types of BWs you should avoid as they get large. The type you got here is the good type.

Just to add on what others have said. Bristleworms are good for the most part. Great cleaners, usually stay hidden (until night), and don’t bother other inhabitants in the tank. 

There are a few types that get big (I’ve had them as thick as my thumb, and 24 inches long), and others that are predatory. But you’ve got a good one

I have seen about 4 different ones.  Everything I had read said this type was ok but I figured I should check with the INDMAS experts 😁
