    Im not sure if this link goes here or not but I had to share, if you go to page two there is a video of it. I was AMAZED. For the first time yesterday I saw what I would assume to be bristle worms in my tank, lets hope they do not ever reach this size.

    Bristle worm and Eunicid worm are two diff things. When i first started my reef i was trying to split my LR and when i cracked one open i found a bristle worm about 8-10 inches.....Bristle worms are good CUC, a Eunicid worm will destroy zoa colonies and other softies. If you have a Eunicid worm, goodluck getting it out, ive read HORROR stories...break out your harpoon!

    One of my local dive spots is loaded with bristle worms that are about 2ft long and 2" across. You have to be careful where you put your hand.
