Bristle worm or fireworm

Hello everyone. The thread is for all aquarium owners. I need some help, as I have a question about how can I find out if I've got a bristle worm or fireworm in my aquarium?

they are all polychaetes, and all commonly referred to as firewoms. Many think fireworms are different and bad guys, but they are not. It just depends on what myth if going on in the thread you are reading There are very few fireworms out of countless types that pose our tanks any problems. You are more likely to find a eunicid than a harmful polychaete. Eunicids dont have the bristles. Most likely the one you have is fine and just a detrivore that isnt equipped to be killing anything no matter how big it gets.Without a good picture its hard to say for sure, but odds are he is your friend, not foe

Oh, man. You know, that they all are similar, so it's next to impossible to differ them, moreover, then you see only photo. Let's go for the such way - I'll give you the site, where there are a lot of information, photos, signs, that can help you to differ them and other about these worms, so you will answer this question by yourself. It would be the most convenient for all. This site - https://arcreef.com/bristle-worms/bristle-worms-fireworms/. Good luck.

Omg, they are so scary. I will be careful with the items I put into the aquarium.
