    I spoke to my friend at my lfs and he said the only way to get the bristles out is to use duct tape. He also said that it's a 3 on the 1 to 10 pain scale and that its not so much as pain full but it pisses you off. Lastly he said that mine is still pretty small and that he's seen some "Monsters!"

    holy. i love finding little new things, especially since my tank is like 3-4 week old with just live rock, second little hitchhiker ive found, its exciting, after reading a few things im almsot scared to put my hand in by the live rock incase a mantis shrimp or something decides to use my finger for target practice ahha, but yeah there seems to be alot of controversy surronding these bristle worms but ill take your guys word for it!
