Common Name: Bristleworm
Scientific ID: Polychaeta ( Varies )
Good/Bad: Good in small(ish) numbers

Description
Bristle worms can range in size, but usually around 1" to 6" in length.
The colour can vary from a light pink/peach to brown or gray.
They are a useful part of the cleanup crew and can often be seen crawling out of rocks and sand during feeding time.
Can sometimes be seen eating away as recently deceased fish and inverts.
Bristle worms will reproduce readily within the aquarium, explosive population of bristleworms is usually down to over feeding.
Highly recommended not to touch bristle worms due to the small, very sharp bristles that can easily pierce skin. If you do get bristles stuck in skin, use a small peice of tape to pull them out.
