lol, thats a load of BS. the only thing they will touch are EXTREMELY EXTREMELY EXTREMELY soft bubbly corals, else theyre just scavengers

haha good.... that thing looks scary.. it is enough to make me want to never stick my hand in there again...eh..

the spines hurt. i got some so deep that vinegar wouldnt work, so i took scissors and tweezers and cut out a piece of my skin. if i put pressure to lift something with the finger it gave a sharp sting so i got fed up
...the bristleworm is likely just fine...enjoy! They're good to have in the tank...
...however, be aware that there are 1-2 species that can be problematic...but the VAST majority are beneficial...
If it worries you, go down to Fishy Business and ask Barb for a trap, I'm sure she has some in the store.
