    Part of the Polychae (what everybody generally call Bristleworms / Fireworms)family (thousands of species) , without proper examination VERY difficult to ID properly.

    I am not one keen on just chucking marine life, but some guys are plain nasty and grow huge , even in small environments. I would still however keep it (personally) as I have never had issues with bristleworms doing serious damage
