Full Lights on, also the only way I would have seen such a small creatureHi guys - no - the bristle worms are not poisenous - their "bristles" or hairs sting like crazy - just like thorns on some plants.....
They are good for the tank, as they usually eat detritus and left-over food. Funny to hear about one that would come out while you are feeding - were you feeding while all the lights was on? Or did you only have the actinics/moonlights on perhaps?
eeww.:err:I touched one by accident once while moving some rocks. It only got the tip of my finger. It stung really bad & the tip of my finger got swollen. Then it burns & later itched like mad. After a day or so I got something that looks like a tiny blister (but it was hard) for each of the spots where a hair sting me. There was quite a few! Then finally the skin of my finger tips started to flake off.
