    Tonight after the tanks light were off for 30min I took a torch to see what was going on and man I am amazed @ all the little "critters" that come out to feed.
    I saw many many what looks like red worms, almost centipede looking things, are these good or bad. They seem to be everywhere even in all my dead rock

    I found a little crab - is this good or bad?

    Amazing!

    Cheers

    bristleworms they are fine but often too many means aquarium is overfed , some species like fireworms and eunice worms are coral eaters but majority eat detritus and leftover food

    Depends what type of crab post a pic!
