    I removed some live rock from my back chamber today & found a type of worm. Looks a bit like a centipede. Could it be a bristle worm ? Also should I put it into the display tank (I have no rock in my back chambers anymore).

    Hi KSSquared - do you have a pic of this worm at all?

    It does indeed sounds like a bristle worm. Just be careful - they do have quite a sting to humans.... but, other than that, are they harmless.....

    It would be fine in your display tank, just don't pick it up with your fingers, it sounds like a bristle worm, their bristles hurt.;)
