I see it occasionally and would like to see it more therefore I want to move it to a smaller tank but don’t know how to catch and and not kill or harm it. It doesn’t even come out when I feed I think it’s nature is just cleaning up so I’m not sure how to go about this

Even in a smaller tank it will hide. Like you said it is in its nature. They hide from potential predators.
Yes I believe there is a bristle worm in my tank I’m taking the rock out tomorrow to soak in very hot water. But I have a smaller tank that I’d like to put the crab in just cause I like my viewing chances more if that makes sense and I look in all the rock holes and openings that I can see which I know there are more in-depth ones in the rock and would like to get him out ?

The only way to keep it from hiding, I'm afraid, is to have a bare tank. They do come out during lights out using a red light for viewing. I wouldn't worry about the Bristle Worm. They are an important part of any CUC and I, for one, welcome them in my tank.

But how do I know if it’s doing well? I think I’d just rather keep it in my smaller tank to begin with so I can add some fish that would potentially eat it. Also it’s like one of my favorite things in the tank and my smaller tank has a relatively very low amount of rock so. Yk i rlly would just like to put it there
