EW!!! I've seen some small itty bitty ones in my tank, thank goodness nothing that gross so far *fingers crossed*.

After seeing a bristleworm in my tank one night I had nightmares about there being these large worms crawling all around my tank, weaving and out of the rockwork. It was gross!

Ive got a big one that has shown itself twice in my tank. i have set traps and spent time looking for it at night with no luck. the other night I went to get something to drink and noticed a white baby bristle worm swimming freely in the tank.

That is pretty amazing. My wife hates to look at some of the ones we have, and they are like and inch or two long.

I have not seen any BW in our main tank, a 120. Did not start with LR. Our 29 cube was started with LR and there are many worms in that tank.
