Welcome to 3reef pinkie! Without a pic it's hard to say. I'm guessing it's a common bristleworm. Google it and check through "images". Some say they are bad. I consider them beneficial.

i am a little worried about the bristle worms...i have a ton of small ones, but recently saw a BIG one! why are they beneficial? I feel like they are everywhere inside my LR. I dont have any fish yet....tank was set up on aug. 26th. The LR I was able to get was in a tank previously...
