    Hu guys. I have these worms and I am not quite sure if they are good or bad?

    00472732-4E87-41E2-AAAA-B60028A1C874-2142-000000AFC35E17CC.jpg

    The build their tubes from my substrate and have 2 transparent tenticles which sweep around and pick up food. They are pretty much everywhere in my sand bed and do a great job at cleaning up my sand. Question is are they a goody or a baddy? Will I be able to keep them in check cause none of my inmates seem to eat the?

    Thanks in advance!

    They are filter feeders, but will also eat floating food particles(small). They are part of the good critters.

    They are not spaghetti worms, although similar.
