    Good or bad?

    I have been trying to find information about the bristle worms I have in my nano. I have been finding conflicting information on whether there good or bad?

    Wanted everyone's opinion on the subject haven't seen any damage to any of the corals though

    Honestly I think they are good until they get like 8 inches long. They eat a lot of detrius and that is good. They can hurt you. I like mine but everyone is different

    I also think it depends on the type. Did some reading a while back and that's the conclusion I came to. Ive never seen one that bright orange in my tank. The ones I have are metallic blue and orangish mix. Have yet to experience coral damage from them.

    They don't damage coral but I have heard that the super large ones may hurt sleeping fish as they eat poop, meat, anything really

    Well good thing is there's no fish in the tank there in. That was one I was able to catch while moving stuff I have all sizes and colors

    Literal "pricks" of the ocean! They used to be thought of as pests but more and more folks are considering them valuable (and free) members of the clean up crew.
