    Have you tried just removing them with a tweezer? My tank is infested with Bristle worms and I made a "Bristle worm trap" to get the small ones...The huge one's we "catch" with a tweezer...:p

    Very easy to do...mine is small...I've a BOYU TL-450(58L)...:p

    Pipe about 10cm...netting on both ends...one end has small holes and I've got substrate to keep it down..I use about half a cube of frozen food in there...I place stones, then food, then stones again...that way they have to go in to get to the food...
