Hello, I am hoping you can help identify this worm - I am lead to believe it is either a fireworm or bristleworm. Is it safe in my marine tank?

Any assistance in identifying it would be very much appreciated

I'm sorry to say that I think that's a fireworm. :(

Which is not safe - they're known to consume soft coral and pack a hefty sting if you handle them. I'd be tempted to trap it out.
