    Looks like a bristle worm. I keep some in my sump but not in my DT

    It's a bristle worm, normally feeds on pods, not really a problem very good cleanup crew but under certain cases can become a pest, taking over the tank.

    Yip, Bristle worm.
    Will multiply as long as there are food available. They are part of your clean up crew. Nice to have as they target areas like under rocks where hermits and snails can not get to.
