How many bristleworms are too many? I appear to have as many as six that I can count and these are coming out in broad daylight so really hard to tell as they are supposed to be night creatures. all appear to be between 1-4 inches.

I like bristleworms they are my friends, unless they stick your fingers. Really, you should not worry about bristleworms, they are scavengers and will help to keep your nitrates in check. If your feeding too much you will see a rise in population of them.

Bristleworms are a good thing. There are more than 6 in there though for sure. If your worried about them an Orchard dottieback will eat them.

Don't worry about them, most of the stuff you read about them is out of date. They are nice unless you do get stuck, then they are not so nice.
