    Default Small orange worms swimming around

    I went to look at my tank tonight with a flashlight and I saw three small orange worms swimming along the glass maybe 1/4 of an inch if even that. They seemed to follow my flashlight. Any idea what they may be?

    mostly likely a Bristol worm our a fire worm both are harmless unless the are very large but still nothing to worry about i have some in my main reef tank that are 8 inchs plus the eat left over food and will eat any fish that die that u might not find our get stuck in the rocks but try to get a pic to be sure
    I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.
