    Default Is this a good or bad bristle worm?

    This thing is HUGE easily 10 inches long, and just wondering if he's a good guy or a bad guy. He likes to come out at night and eat the leftover food off the floor.

    He appears to be a run of the mill bristle. But if he is 10 inces I would also pull him.

    They can start to eat things you do not want them to eat. Also if it is that big I am sure you have plenty of babbies and removeing him will not effect your tank in any noticeable manner.

    Wow, that thing's a monster, lol! I'm with Joe, you probably have loads of little wormie babies in there, so don't feel like you'd lose much cleaning power by taking him out.
