    OK thought they where all mainly brown. Ive been seeing bristle worm traps at some lfs saying they will "eat your most priced specimens" is there any truth to that.

    That is a red worm (bristle worm) that is full of something which gives him that look.

    By full of something do you mean something it ate? I haven't fed my tank at all yet.

    White bristle worms will harm nothing in your tank. They are scavengers. Eating any an all uneaten foods and dead things.

    The brisles, of the worm, embedded in the skin, can be a minor-sub major irritant to people. Try not to grab one of these.
