Are these bristle or fire worms???

I recently got some LR from somewhere other than my normal "fish guy" and tonight my hubby and I noticed these. Not sure if they are bristle or fire worms. Sorry for the blurry picture best I can get with my phone.

Very hard to tell in such a small pic, sorry.

Not sure if this is a better one or not. I'm posting from my phone.

Not terribly clear but look like bristle worms to me. Fantastic clean up crew to have. Just don't touch them
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

They look just like the bristleworms in my tank.
Btw, thanks for the advice, Bertie, not to freak out over my crazy worm population explosion. I'm glad I heeded your warning & held back on the 6-line wrasse. After a couple of months of the new tank settling in, the population has definitely waned to acceptable levels.
